Dylan Andrews seems like a James Te Huna type of fighter (and he's an Aussie) Banger with questionable ground game.

Chances of getting through the first round? I give him more than a 50% chance say 60%

Kito Andrews is pretty well rounded and is coming into his peak at 34 but might normally fight at 175.

Chances of getting through the first round? I see him being unlucky... In terms of percentage i see his chances being high but I don't see him making it in... Maybe 45-49%

Luke Barnatt is 6'6 has had some success on the British scene most impressively picking up a win at BAMMA.

Chances? Low, it's a possibility but I'd guess like 20%-30%

Leo Bercier has some legit power but as a brawler it seems his chin isn't 100% but neither was Diego Brandaos...

Chances? I'd say low to Brandao if I was doing that season again and he went on to win it... Will he win, doubt it, will he make it out the first round? I'm gonna say he'll land a bomb. 50-55%

Ryan Bigler is quite an enigma, he's beaten grapplers on the feet and strikers on the ground. Plenty of success in the Pacific Islands

Chances? This is a tough one.... I'm gonna go ahead and say 50-55% but I'm fairly torn

Kevin Casey, Gracie Blackbelt - Former Strikeforce fighter - Californian gangster rapper, his 2 pro losses have come to Lindland and Minowa.

Chances? Confidence, Gracie name and he'd be a persona so he might get an "easy win" - 66%

Adam Cella appears to be a kickboxer made his debut in september 11 and extended his streak to 4-0 in 7 months with no fights escaping round 1.

Chances? 7 Months of pro fights as a striker? 15-25%

Zak Cummings has 18 pro fights with losses to Ryan Jimmo (25 Minute Decision) and Tim Kennedy. He's fought at Bellator and Strikeforce.

Chances? High, 80-85%

Andy Enz is a Alaskian Fighting Championship title holder who most notably won a 8 man (unsanctioned) one man tournament.

Chances? This is a tough one as he's had success in a seemingly very small promotion... I'm gonna say no luck... 35-40%

Nik Fetete is an Xtreme Couture fighter and an NCAA All american wrestler who's fought twice at Bellator and holds a win over OSP.

Chances? High 85%

Kelvin Gastelum is the youngest competitor and seems to be an unknown mystery. However he's tweeted positively a lot about the show recently

Chances? The tweets make me think he made it on the show. 50-55%

Uriah Halls only losses have come to Serra fighters Weidman & Philippou. He's the Current Ring of Combat middleweight champion.

Chances? High 75-80%

Collin Hart has picked up a win at Tachi Palace Fights and his sole loss came by split decision, he holds a draw over Henle who beat Phillipou.

Chances? Maybe just maybe... 50-60%

Clint Hester looks like a banger who has a questionable ground game. He has often considered becoming a pro-boxer.

Chances? Just like above this is another hard call... I see Clint being unlucky. 40-50%

Jake Heun's picked up a couple of losses by submission but trains under Jeremy Horn, he's got KO power and is naturally a heavyweight fighter.

Chances? If he wins it'll be by quick KO... But if he fights a smart fighter, he'll get grinded and end up gassed 30-40%

Mike Jasper trains out of Bas Rutten's gym Elite MMA and his striking is no joke, he's picked up 3 Wins at BAMMA USA and has finished 3 out of 5 fights.

Chances? I think he might end up putting on a striking clinic on someone, but I could be far from correct. 55-65%

Nicholas Kohring not Nick Ring, is a Cesar Gracie fighter and a natural WW. He has a win by TKO (punches), Sub (armbar) and Decision.

Chances? I wanna score him high but theres gotta be some losers... Whatever 55-65%

Robert McDaniel is the most experienced fighter in the line up and fights out of Greg Jacksons MMA. He's won 10 of his last 12 matches.

Chances? High 85-90%

Fraser Opie has a record of 10-5, 3 of those losses have come from a guillotine choke. He's fought in multiple promotions on the British Scene.

Chances? I have good reason to doubt it... But you can always be proven wrong 10-20%

Mike Persons is another mystery figure. He's 3-0 however his opponents combined record is 7-19... But nobody should be underestimated.

Chances? Again low, 10-15%

Jimmy Quinlan is a Brown Belt in Jiu Jitsu and was a successful Colligate wrestler, all the makings of a difficult matchup for opponents.

Chances? High 65-70%

Scott Rosa, a 6'6 natural 205er and is known as the man who KO'd and retired James Irvin. His only loss has come to Anthony Ruiz.

Chances? Going off a hunch I think he has potential but something in my mind says if he KO'd Irvin, what if he stands with people just to test himself... 30-45%

Josh Samman has flew under the radar for a while now, he's fought at Bellator and XFC and this might be a chance to shine.

Chances? It's his chance to shine? But can he? 66%

Gilbert Smith was a very successful Amateur and has picked up 4 submission finishes in his 6 pro fights, only suffering one loss.

Chances? Think he's gonna be the dark horse in this... 70-75%

Eldon Sproat is 3-1 with all fights finishing with a KO or TKO, his only loss was suffered at Pro Elite.

Chances? When he got finished at Pro Elite he was all over the place, makes me question his defensive instinct, he was doing well up until then though, 40-49%

Tor Treong is believed to be Alexander Gustaffsons training partner and rumours have circulated that he might be a force to be reckoned with on air.

Chances? It's either the rumours are true or there not... 70-85%

Eric Wahlin might not have a sherdog page but with a win by calf crusher, his chance to shine was a long time coming.

Chances? Low... 25-35%

Tim Williams earned the nickname "The South Jersey Strangler" as his 5 of his 7 wins have come by way of choke making him a threat on the ground.

Chances, could pull it off if he gets a striker but I think he'll end up on the matt getting banged 35-45%






So according to my chances 12 people are going out... Despite there being 14 matchups...

I hope I'm on Chael_Sonnen's Team too. Wait a minute I just hope I make the house.

Just a few hours away and I'm actually pretty pumped for this. The 2 hr fights to get into the house are always good. We at least get to see a bunch of fights.

Well according to DirtyBlueJeans I have a slightly better than 50% chance of making the house.
Actually slightly higher considering you have 12 people going out while there are 14 fights. So that puts me closer to 60%


Honestly though I think the favorites in no particular order are; Tor Treong (jjeans), Robert McDaniel (FastKO), and Zak Cummings (FF47).

Good luck everyone and enjoy.
