Default Jussier "Formiga" da Silva signs with the UFC

I know that some of you are fans. A very welcome addition to the flyweight division.

How do you figure a rematch with McCall would go?

I think McCall would win again tbh......(at the time was a big surprise to me, but I didnīt know McCall before that fight)
Jussierīs stand up needs some work yet, he looks too harmless there......IMHO.

I think he could beat Johnson, but it's a tough fight. I think someone would edge out a decision.

He would have a rougher time against Benavidez, I think. Benavidez is going to be tough to beat at 125.

So he'll be fighting John Dodson in a number one contender match this Friday.

By all accounts, Dodson is near impossible to take down, and he should enjoy a striking advantage. Tough fight for Formiga.

I've seen a fair bit of Dodson and his TDD is insane.

You think he'd be outmatched here but I'm picking him to blast Jussier on the feet.
