2021.10.28 03:00 autotldr Taiwan's president becomes first to confirm dozens of US troops are on the island and training the military as she warns threat from China is increasing every day
This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 88%. (I'm a bot)
Taiwan's president has confirmed for the first time that American troops are on the island of Taiwan training the Taiwanese military - just days after President Joe Biden publicly confirmed he would defend the nation from China should it come under attack.
President Tsai Ing-wen explained how US soldiers were stationed on the self-governing island, explaining that Taiwan had a 'wide range of cooperation with the US aiming at increasing our defense capability'.
For decades, the Pentagon maintained a large troop presence in Taiwan but the American Taiwan Defense Command was ended in 1979 as the United States began a formal diplomatic relationship with China.
Under President Xi Jinping, who is also Communist Party leader and head of the armed forces, China has been stepping up military, diplomatic and economic pressure on Taiwan.
Over its National Day weekend at the beginning of the month, China sent a record 149 military aircraft southwest of Taiwan in strike group formations, prompting Taiwan to scramble aircraft and activate its air defense missile systems.
The US Congress at the same time approved the Taiwan Relations Act, which obligated the supply of weapons to the island for its self-defense.

2021.10.28 03:00 Slayers_Picks UFC 267 Fight Predictions!
I hope everyone is doing well!
This is a very big card, so this post might look a little long, but it's also one of those cards that actually has me excited, and considering we're coming off 3 weeks of rather slow fight cards, this one is a main course in terms of quality (and quantity), so lets get cracking!
(c) - Champ
(D/DWCS) - Debut/Dana Whites' Contender Series
FLS - Fight Lose Streak
FWS - Fight Win Streak
NS - No Streak
(#x) - Rank in Division
x/3 - Confidence Levels
Tagir Ulanbekov (-340) (12-1-0, 4 FWS) v Allan Nascimento (D) (+260) (18-5-0, NS) - A relatively fun fight to start off this momentous event. Ulanbekov had a very successful and impressive debut against Bruno Silva last year, in which both fighters showed incredible wrestling ability throughout the duration of the fight, but he did eat a lot of leg kicks early on and perhaps wasn’t quite ready for the scrap that Silva was going to bring, but for a debut fight, as difficult as it was, there’s no doubt that Ulanbekov has ironed out the issues and we could get much see a more well rounded fighter. Ulanbekov is a wrestler, plain and simple, we saw how bad he was on the feet, not really showing much defence, nor offence in the striking department, but whenever he got in the clinch or in a grappling situation, he did very well. Nascimento is coming off a quick round 1 finish over another fighter in a regional promotion, but two years before that, attempted to win a contract on DWCS, and failed. Nascimento is excellent on the ground, he’s a submission hunter and he’ll no doubt look to be highly aggressive off his back because the fight will eventually go to the ground, but it’s the quality of opponent that stands out here, Ulanbekov might not be a prospect just yet in the UFC, but he’s still incredibly dangerous. I’m going with Ulanbekov here, but I do wonder how much he’s improved since his debut.
Ulanbekov via UD - (2/3)
Damir Ismagulov (-275) (23-1-0, 18 FWS) v Magomed Mustafaev (+210) (14-4-0, NS) - Ismagulov truly is on a beautiful streak. Ismagulov hasn’t lost a fight in 6 years, not only is that a show of dominance, but it’s also a show of activity, he’s averaged 3 fights a year and has just dominated them all. He’s a very well rounded fighter, but he particularly specialises in relentless pressure and great cardio, he’s always going to swarm his opponent with activity, pushing them back towards the cage, and not giving them a chance to properly fight back and breathe. Ismagulov is a beast and someone who is very high on my must watch list, so maybe there’s some favouritism here, but if you’ve been watching him for the past year or two, why wouldn’t you have this guy as a favourite fighter? Ismagulov is just very well rounded and everything he does is measured. In his last fight against Alves, he got rocked badly, knocked down, but managed to secure a takedown and an advantageous position for nearly the rest of the round, that’s how dangerous he is regardless of his condition. Mustafaev is coming off a split decision loss against Brad Riddell in a pretty competitive bout, Riddell won on the feet, but after 8 takedowns and 7 minutes of control time it’s no wonder it was a split decision. Mustafaev is a very dynamic striker, he’s excellent at timing spinning stuff, is explosive on the feet and has a wide variety of techniques that he relies on, but really it’s the power and speed of his kicks that stand out to me, and the only way to get past that offensive is to crowd his opponent and get close, and that’s what Ismagulov is great at doing, he won’t give Mustafaev enough time to set up those kicks, or at least I hope he won’t because I got Ismagulov on this one, he’s a bit of a longer fighter, is great at gauging range and is super sneaky in throwing strikes. The streak will continue, but it’s always awesome to see Mustafaev back in the octagon, what a fight this will be!
Ismagulov via UD - (2/3)
Yaozong Hu (+185) (3-2-0, 2 FLS) v Andre Petroski (-245) (6-1-0, NS) - Hu is coming off two back to back losses in the UFC, and it was clear that there was a bit of inexperience whenever Hu fought, he just got outclassed in both fights, but this time could be a little bit different for two reasons. He hasn’t fought for almost 3 years now, and whilst that can be inactivity, it also could be a complete refinement of skills, so we can’t really tell until he steps back into the Octagon. Secondly, this is at middleweight, Yaozong last fought at Light Heavyweight, and that 20 pounds could really make a difference in cardio and speed, but that does not change the fact that he’s got a high pressure fighter in Petroski that he’s gotta fight. Yaozong is fairly well rounded, with strong kickboxing and some solid power in his hands, but he hasn’t quite shined just yet. Petroski is coming off an excellent debut win against Gillmore, in which he utilized beautiful wrestling and solid, solid ground and pound to put Gillmore away. It was the pressure and that “in your face” style that makes me love Petroski so much, he’s a bulldog of a fighter and will look to create chaos in the pocket, whether its wild punches in the pocket, or setting up a powerful takedown then work fast from there, Petroski is someone who could be a nightmare matchup for anyone. I got Petroski on this one, mostly because I don’t think Yaozong will be ready for the pressure of Petroski, especially if he’s coming back after 3 years of not being in a fight.
Petroski via KO R2 - (2/3)
Makwan Amirkhani (+260) (16-6-0, 2 FLS) v Lerone Murphy (-340) (10-0-1, 2 FWS) - Amirkhani is not doing great at the moment, with two losses in a row despite having a strong career in the UFC in which he was a consistently good wrestler, always landing takedowns and looking for that submission, but his stand up is perhaps a little bit rocky and he isn’t very defensively sound, typically eating a lot of punches in order to get that takedown. Unfortunately for Amirkhani, he’s facing a very slick boxer in Murphy who will do his best to keep this fight on the feet, where he can use that slight edge in reach advantage to work his jab and slowly chip away at Amirkhani. Murphy is currently undefeated and his performances in the Octagon explain why. He's very, very patient on the feet, able to pick his shots and land at a fairly efficient rate, and even though he has a boxing background, he still does great work to scramble out of ground positions and his cardio allows him to continuously do this. Murphy is such a fun fighter to watch, his boxing is super crisp and he has adapted to the elite level of UFC fighters exceptionally well. I got Murphy on this one, he’s just such a fun prospect.
Murphy via KO R3 - (2/3)
Michal Oleksiejczuk (+140) (15-4-0, NS) v Shamil Gamzatov (-165) (14-0-0, 14 FWS) - This is a fun fight. Oleksiejczuk is coming off a strong win over Bukauskas, and as close as it was on paper, Oleksiejczuk showed vast improvement in his striking and patience, he used to be gassed because of the amount of power and recklessness he threw that power with, but in his fight against Bukauskas, he still had that pressure and still stuck to his opponent like glue, but this time he remained calm and picked his powerful shots. Oleksiejczuk reminds me of a nightmare fight where you punch someone but nothing happens, he just keeps walking you down, throwing polish power in your face, it’s truly beautiful to watch. Gamzatov has had visa issues for most of 2020 and earlier this year, which is a shame because he’s such a dangerous pressure fighter. His fight against Abreu was pretty interesting, he displayed strong striking despite being walked down a lot, which is probably what’s going to happen in this fight since Oleksiejczuk just walks through everything in order to land punches. Gamzatov is great at feinting with his head which allows him to set up either a right punch to the torso, or a powerful overhand right, and I think in this particular fight, we might see some insane overhand power shots coming from Gamzatov. I have Gamzatov in this fight, he’s going to be hungry for a big finish after being nearly 2 years inactive. Some heavy shots are going to be heard here.
Gamzatov via KO R3 - (1/3)
Elizeu Zaleski (-185) (22-7-0, NS) v Benoit Saint-Denis (D) (+155) (8-0-0, 8 FWS) - I love this fight. Zaleski is such an exciting fighter to watch, his unorthodox yet crowd pleasing style complimented by his background in capoeira can create some highly unpredictable and chaotic scenes when he fights, whether its spinning stuff or just overall explosive actions, Zaleski does them all. His cardio is awesome too, and he carries the same speed and athleticism throughout all 3 rounds, but sometimes he does get a bit overzealous and does get in trouble quite often, but regardless of that, he’s able to surprise us all with his flexibility and well, ability to throw things that not everyone can throw, so he’s probably going to surprise Saint-Denis a little bit on the feet. Saint-Denis is on an outstanding streak at the moment, and considering he just made his pro MMA debut two years ago and is already at 8-0.. That’s something we all should keep an eye on because that’s not just a possible prospect, that’s a possible prodigy. For an underdog, he’s money right now, and for very good reason, he chases the finish, is highly aggressive and just outstanding with his pace, he’s got excellent cardio and whilst going from Brave FC to the UFC is a huge leap in skill-gap, I feel like he’s going to do absolutely fine, but he needs to be careful with Zaleski because anything can happen. Something tells me that Saint-Denis is going to make an awesome debut and be in headlines, its just this itchy feeling at the back of my head that may or may not be a mosquito bite, but you know what? It’s a PPV so fuck it, lets go God of War!
Saint-Denis via KO R2 - (1/3)
Albert Duraev (DWCS) (-275) (14-3-0, 9 FWS) v Roman Kopylov (+210) (8-1-0, NS) - This ones fascinating. Duraev is coming off a masterful performance on DWCS with a strong neck crank submission win against knockout artist Caio Bittencourt, and what a performance that was, he was so slick taking the fight to the ground and just relentlessly smashing away at Bittencourt’s face, albeit they weren’t hard punches. Duraev executed everything perfectly, from the takedown, to the positioning, to the timing of the submission, everything looked excellent, and I mean, the way he showed respect to Bittencourt afterwards is the epitome of Martial Arts and respect. Beautiful stuff. Kopylov is coming off a tough loss against ever so tough Karl Roberson, and it was a bit of a one sided fight, Kopylov ate a couple of dozen thudding leg kicks which no doubt slowed him down, and I don’t think many people were expecting Roberson to sink in a submission against Kopylov. Kopylov isn’t as active as we’d all like to see fighters be, so that could very well impact his performance, and the fact that he hasn’t fought in quite a while, no rebound victory or anything doesn’t really give me much info on how he’s going to perform now. I am riding on Duraev winning this one, his DWCS performance really did impress me and I mean, his confidence was seeping through the monitor that day. But, it won’t be a super high confidence prediction because we don’t know how much Kopylov has improved, and I mean, debuting against someone like Roberson is not very easy. Fun fight this one will be.
Duraev via Sub R2 - (1/3)
Zubaira Tukhugov (-165) (19-5-1, NS) v Ricardo Ramos (+140) (15-3-0, NS) - Tukhugov is such a fun fighter to watch, his long sideways stance makes him look like he’s going to set up a powerful straight right, but his left hand is very dangerous too, that much we saw when he fought Aguilar last year in New Zealand. He looked very measured and the power in his hands that night was incredible. He is coming off a bit of a tough loss though against Dawodu who has a more refined striking skills compared to Tukhugov who is a bit more well rounded with maybe a focus on wrestling. There is one small problem on Tukhugov’s side though, and that’s the fact that he’s a headhunter, a large majority of his fights has him targeting the head more than anything else, so if a fighter has great head movement and general defence, he should be fine against Tukhugov. Ramos is coming off a fairly dominant win over Algeo earlier this year, in which he landed 8 takedowns and just kept chasing those takedowns, he feinted with a punch and level changes over and over, he mixes it all up so well. The only thing that he doesn’t do too well is his striking, he’s not a strong striker, he can punch and has the ability to knock out his opponents, but when coming up against a powerful puncher like Tukhugov, he’s going to need to take this fight to the ground. Such a difficult fight to predict, but I think Tukhugov could get this win.
Tukhugov via UD - (1/3)
Amanda Ribas (#11) (-155) (10-2-0, NS) v Virna Jandiroba (#9) (+130) (17-2-0, NS) - This is a great featured bout! Ribas is coming off quite an upset loss against Rodriguez, and it kind of opened our eyes to Ribas and her inability to do that well in striking exchanges, and unfortunately that’s probably the kind of fight we’re looking at. Ribas is excellent at wrestling and trips, she’s great at finding a way to take her opponent to the ground, then control them for a long time, and I mean, with a black belt in both BJJ and Judo, you really do expect the fighter to do exceptionally well in grappling exchanges. Ribas is going to have to pressure and keep threatening the takedown, give Jandiroba a few things to think about, maybe land an overhand right, but ultimately get her hands locked behind Jandiroba and take the fight to the ground. Jandiroba might be overlooked here though, because she can bring some heat when needed. Jandiroba has excellent kickboxing, she’s great at setting up her power right, but she’s also decent at taking the fight to the ground and just pounding away at her opponent, so overall she’s just very well rounded. However, she’s going to need to keep this fight on the feet in this particular bout because Ribas is just so heavy on top. Jandiroba will need to defend the takedowns, and throw a few punches on the break. It’s kinda hard to say what Jandiroba will do because she doesn’t have a particular style, but considering that Ribas is very grapple heavy, Jandiroba will need to keep this on the feet. I got Ribas coming into this fight though, I think her loss against Rodriguez has opened her mind because maybe she was buying into her own hype at one stage.
Ribas via UD - (2/3)
Magomed Ankalaev (#8) (-350) (15-1-0, 6 FWS) v Volkan Oezdemir (#9) (+260) (17-5-0, NS) - I don’t see this one going the distance. Ankalaev is an absolute animal in this division, he defeated Cutelaba twice (technically Cutelaba defeated himself that one time), he’s incredible on the feet with astounding power and speed. Ankalaev is excellent at timing explosive attacks, whether it’s spinning back kicks or just rushing in powershots, he’s able to overwhelm his opponents with both power and aggression. His level of competition has been pretty damn good as well, as I stated before, he won against Cutelaba twice, which already is a rather tough thing to do, and he did it so masterfully too, he didn’t go too crazy, everything was measured. However, he is susceptible to being swarmed, and if Oezdemir’s chin holds up, he could absolutely pour on the pressure and not let Ankalaev get any of his notorious power shots through. Oezdemir is coming off a bit of a tough loss against the rising star in Prochazka, and I mean, who wouldn’t lose to Prochazka so he was definitely fighting a dangerous talent in the division. Oezdemir is excellent at striking and swarming his opponent with punches, but sometimes he leaves his chin exposed for too long and does get clipped, this has happened numerous times in the last few years and since Oezdemir hasn’t fought in a little over a year, it makes me wonder if he’s improved on his striking defense after throwing things. Oezdemir needs to be aware of two things, Ankalaevs wrestling ability, and that left head kick that he does exceptionally well. The problem with that is if you have your defenses or guard up too high, it leaves you open for takedowns, but if you bite into a level change feint and drop down anticipating a takedown, you could eat a head kick. So, what Oezdemir needs to do, and what he does well, is just push forward and drown Ankalaev in pressure. But with all of that said, I still think Ankalaev is going to win this one, he’s done exceptionally well in the UFC so far and he handles almost every situation perfectly.
Ankalaev via KO R2 - (3/3)
Jingliang Li (#11) (+330) (18-6-0, NS) v Khamzat Chimaev (-450) (9-0-0, 9 FWS) - The Swedish Smesher returns! Jingliang has had one recent slip in his career, and that was against the cardio maniac in Magny, he never really had a chance to fight back since Magny was in control of the whole fight. But considering that Jingliang is primarily a visceral kickboxer, going to the ground was perhaps the smartest choice for a clean win. Jingliang is a lightning fast striker who is able to just put his opponents to sleep with his incredibly sharp hands, he holds his right hand at the ready, and typically uses a jab or a left hook to range find, or open up his opponents defences a bit, and once he has a target, he launches that right hand and puts away his opponents. He’s one of the more cleaner strikers in the division, especially if you miss, in which case he’s going to punish you twofold. However, it’s his grappling that will be exposed here if Chimaev doesn’t get a little overzealous on the feet. Chimaev is excellent at just taking his opponents to the ground and sucking the life out of them by devastating pressure and ground and pound. Some things have changed however and it does make me a little iffy about going all in on Chimaev. First, we all know how well documented his COVID issues were, it nearly cost him his career, and apparently he’s back but we’ll never really know if he is until after the fight is over. Second, his quality of opponents has been somewhat… lackluster until now, Jingliang is his first high level opponent in the UFC and we could perhaps see a huge upset here considering the level of competition Jingliang has faced compared to Chimaev. But all that goes without saying, Chimaev is such an exciting prospect and a much needed one at that since Welterweight isn’t super deep right now, you know, with everyone fighting everyone else 3 times in a row or something along those lines. Chimaev will want to take this fight to the ground and unleash hell on Jingliang until either TKO or a submission is available. So with all of that said, I am going to go with Chimaev, BUT at the low confidence pick because honestly if anyone can put Chimaev away, it’s someone on the calibre of Jingliang.
Chimaev via UD - (1/3)
Alexander Volkov (#6) (-300) (33-9-0, NS) v Marcin Tybura (#8) (+245) (22-6-0, 5 FWS) - This feels like your traditional Striker v Grappler bout. Volkov is coming in odd a tough one sided loss against Gane, in which Volkov really couldn’t get anything highly effective out because Gane kept showing about 500 different movements per round. Volkov is such a dangerous boxer, he’s so clean and everything looks so… standard, there’s nothing fancy when he strikes, it’s typically just a one-two down the line with significant speed and impact. However, despite his significant height and reach advantage over Tybura, he still somewhat doesn’t do too well against wrestlers, and that’s one thing Tybura is awesome at. Tybura is going to look to take this fight to the ground and remain heavy, tie up the legs and just never let Volkov back up until the bell rings. Tybura has fought so many heavy hitters, albeit none of whom are top level competition in the UFC, but still he’s been pretty dominant whenever the fight goes to the ground. I feel that Tybura is going to chop at the legs of Volkov early on to simmer the power of Volkov, and so it’ll be easier to land a takedown if Volkov isn’t as evasive or mobile as he was. It’s an interesting fight though, because both fighters have kinda fought the same opponents over the past two to three years, so this fight was probably going to happen eventually and it makes me wonder if they kinda prepared for each other outside of this camp. Anyway, as controversial as this pick is, I think Tybura will win this one, his wrestling is going to be key here and I wonder how well Volkov has improved his takedown defence. I wouldn’t exactly advise betting on this prediction pick.
Tybura via UD - (1/3)
Islam Makhachev (#6) (-650) (20-1-0, 8 FWS) v Dan Hooker (#7) (+440) (21-10-0, NS) - Alright, time to make enemies out of you guys. Makhachev has no doubt been a nightmare for the Lightweight division, no one wants to fight him, or they might risk losing their ranked spot. No one wants to fight him or they might get smashed and drowned in a sea of pressure. Makhachev is no doubt one of the most dangerous wrestlers in the division at the moment, he will successfully get a takedown and he will land dangerous ground and pound, there’s no way to escape it, he’s one of Khabibs team mates after all and we all see a similarity with how they fight, he’s not afraid to throw strikes because if the opponent shoots for a takedown, he’ll just reverse it and become the guy in a better position. This is a story told countless times whenever Makhachev fights, and I’m on board the hype train, but I’m not purchasing premium seating just yet. Look at Makhachevs opponents over the past couple of years, Tsarukyan, Ramos, Dober (getting up there in talent that’s for sure) and Moises (Main event spot). Those are great fighters, but they’re not ranked opponents… You probably see where i’m going with this, Makhachev is yet to fight up in skill or ranking, and despite Hooker being only ranked 7 in the division, he’s honestly a top 5er overall. Hooker is someone who I give so much praise to, and for very good reason. He’s fought the best the division has to offer (apart from championship bouts) and has experience upon experience facing a wide variety of fighters. Hooker is such a dynamic kickboxer, he’ll fight at any range to great effectiveness, his knees up the middle have caused many knockouts in the UFC, and his highlight performances of recent have been nothing short of award worthy. Hooker took this fight on full confidence that he has the ability to defeat Makhachev, and I mean, Hooker is just a confident dude regardless, he could probably fight Ngannou and Gane at the same time and feel confident that he’ll win. All of that aside, I think Hooker has the ability to keep Makhachev away, but he needs to be incredibly weary of the power hand of Makhachev, because what happened last time when he kept moving laterally away from his opponent who is also a dangerous wrestler? He got knocked out. Makhachev probably doesn’t have the same power as Chandler, but he does put on a monstrous amount of pressure and I think Hooker will notice that in the first round. It’s those second rounds where Hooker will turn things around and eventually find his groove. I got Hooker on this, those odds are disgusting and a complete disrespect to a veteran like Hooker. Medium confidence pick inbound because i’m not that stupid. Only a little bit!
Hooker via UD - (2/3)
Bantamweight Interim Championship Bout
Petr Yan (#2) (-245) (15-2-0, NS) v Cory Sandhagen (#3) (+195) (14-3-0, NS) - This is going to be an outstanding fight. Yan is coming off quite a horrible DQ loss against Sterling, we all know the story behind that, be it’s what happened prior to that, that I want to highlight. He played with Sterling, he kinda coaxed him into a false sense of security, let Sterling throw volume after volume, something we’ve never seen from Sterling before, and then just tripped him, dumped him, boxed him up and unfortunately it ended the way it did, because otherwise it would have been Yan winning the fight in the remaining rounds. Yan is such an overwhelming force of nature and it’s awesome to see such power and speed from such a small frame. He’s excellent at just crowding his opponent with heavy punches, and if that doesn’t work, he takes them down to deal thudding ground and pound. Yan is indeed championship material, but he’s got a tricky, long range fighter ahead of him that won’t be easy to overcome. Sandhagen is coming off quite a close split decision loss over TJ Dillashaw and honestly it only highlighted Sandhagens striking that much more, he landed so many clean strikes and utilised such awesome movement in order to land those shots, layers of feints and angled movements that it even took Dillashaw by surprise. Sandhagen is long, and that’s what allows him to have this unique Bantamweight ability to just let a punch go and it’ll just land, his boxing and flow is exceptional and could give Yan some serious trouble. We saw Sandhagen fight in so many situations, whether its on the retreat or in the pocket, everything Sandhagen does is thought of three steps back. But it’s the wrestling that is a big problem, being long allows his opponents to blitz in, and then secure a takedown, and whilst Sandhagen can be a bit crafty off his back, if his opponent is ready to defend submission attempts, and can work their way to a more advantageous position, then Sandhagen will be punished. This is why Yan is going to need to utilize his wrestling here, I don’t think he has the ability to trade blow for blows against Sandhagen that effectively. This is honestly a coin toss, both fighters can win this, the odds are pretty ridiculous in this fight too. However, i’m going to go with Yan on this one, he just seems unstoppable at the moment, and as much as I love Sandhagen and his high level striking, I don’t think he’s ready for the pressure of Yan.
Yan via KO R4 - (2/3)
Light Heavyweight Championship Bout
Jan Blachowicz (c) (-275) (28-8-0, 5 FWS) v Glover Teixeira (#2) (+225) (32-7-0, 5 FWS) - Oh this is going to be a heartbreaker. Blachowicz is notorious for his Polish Power, I know that it’s more of an entertainment or buzzword here, but it means exactly what it sounds like, Blachowicz has insane power in his hands, his boxing is beautiful and his ability to let his hands fly is just something dangerous. He’s primarily a boxer, he doesn’t throw too many kicks and in this particular case, it’s good that he doesn’t because I’m not sure if he can handle the grappling of Teixeira. Blachowicz has a sniper of a right hand, the way he sets it up is standard but its also mastered, he’s great at gauging range with his jab, then once he doubles up on that jab or is comfortable just throwing a single jab, he lets his hammer of a right hand fly straight down the pipe and it hits hard. This was the story when he fought Adesanya, that right hand was there the whole time despite Adesanya being an evasive fighter. Blachowicz is also a very accomplished grappler, he’s got a black belt in BJJ and whilst he’s unlikely to initiate a takedown against someone like Teixeira, he has the knowhow to avoid submissions if the fight ever heads in that direction. Blachowicz is excellent at remaining heavy and in great positions on the ground, but most of his highlight moments have been on the feet, especially recently when he rose to championship rank. Teixeira has had a very long and arduous journey to this final bout of his career, and what a beautiful career he has had. It’s his recent resurgence that has been quite beautiful though, his dominant win against Anthony Smith, his insane performance against the nightmare Thiago Santos, and now a championship bout, all of this after a 9 year career in the UFC. Teixeira is something special and the MMA world is going to miss him. Teixeira is known for his wrestling and submission ability, he’s very quick to find a submission, or even a strong position to land strong ground and pound, and despite his rather old age, his cardio is something incredible, he’s got the ability to bring a high pace 5 round fight all the way to its end, but I don’t think it’s going to go that far in this fight. Teixeira is still facing a big, powerful, explosive boxer and he’s going to have to make this fight gritty in order to get a win. Wrestling and pressure are the two main keys to victory for Teixeira and I feel like he could pull it off, but not without some major adversity. Blachowicz will remain champion at the end of this event, but not without one last performance by a long time veteran. Gonna be tough to watch as a fan of Teixeira, but I got Blachowicz on this one.
Blachowicz via KO R3 - (3/3)
And that's it!
Total Tally of Confidence Picks:
1/3 - 6/15
2/3 - 7/15
3/3 - 2/15
My locks for this massive event are: Petroski, Ankalaev, Yan and Blachowicz. However, Hooker and Sandhagen are awesome underdogs for this bout.

2021.10.28 03:00 SlytherinBuckeye Level Four- October 28, 2021
Level Four “No need!” snarled Moody. “With You-Know-Who out there and half the Ministry on his side? Potter, if we’re lucky hell have swallowed the fake bait and he’ll be planning to ambush you on the thirtieth, but he’d be mad not to have a Death Eater or two keeping an eye out, it’s what I’d do. They might not be able to get at you or this house while your mother’s charm holds, but it’s about to break and they know the rough position of the place. Our only chance is to use decoys. Even You-Know-Who can’t split himself into seven.”
Hints will be given in the private channels on Discord upon request. Tag
@hint if your house is stuck and needs a hint to proceed. All hint requests will be logged in the
#room-of-requirehint channel on Discord. Using hints will decrease your house’s hint bonus.
Work with your house to solve this puzzle. Puzzles should only be discussed in your house's Arithmancy Discord channel.
Links to the Reddit threads with your house’s Discord invite link: Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, Slytherin. (Note that you can only open these if you are a part of your house’s common room.*)
* If you would like to join your house’s common room, check here for instructions.
All students may participate even if you have not yet joined a common room. If a discussion has not yet been started in your common room, feel free to start one.
The answer will be a word or phrase. Submit your answer using this Google form. Each student may submit only ONE guess per level and may have only one Reddit account used for participating. You may only submit for your own house.
Every FIVE guesses, the current number of correct and incorrect guesses will be updated in this spreadsheet
The deadline is Sunday, October 30, 2 AM EDT
See the stickied announcements post for the full schedule and details on the scoring system.

2021.10.28 03:00 dmndhands_harambo Our knowledge of the world makes it possible to save it
| 💡 You don't have to volunteer to the ends of the earth to help save the planet. We respect the work of volunteers but don`t forget how much we can do to protect the environment without leaving our own home. |
😥 Sad statistics show that every hundredth animal species on Earth is on the verge of extinction. Whales die due to water pollution, penguins due to oil spills, polar bears due to global warming, and grizzlies due to deforestation.
🍀 How to preserve our planet? We'll have to start with ourselves - there is no other way to save the planet.
☝️ A modest charitable donation to an animal rescue organization will give a chance for a happy life for some of the rare species. If each person donated just a dollar, more than 7 billion would be raised to create scientific laboratories, nature reserves and restoration of natural habitats.
✅ You can start helping with us - join our team. #helpanimalinneed #helpanimalindia #helpanimalsineed #helpanimal #helpanimal #dmnd.io #dmndhands #defi4good
