    Glad to see Paul get another chance in the UFC, one of those guys i’ll always root for.
    Get rid of Mir vs Kongo and thats a pretty entertaining card so far

    This is a pretty sweet match up. It will really gauge where Duffee is at in the HW division.

  • Rich S. says:

    Great matchup. Nice card.

  • fanoftna33 says:

    I like Buentello here, although I picked Cro Cop for the same reasons I think Paul will win this one with experience, drag Duffy into rounds 2-3 and really pour it on for the tko/ko here.

  • dpk says:

    This card is looking stacked already, and we are still 3 months out. I’m going to take Duffee by 2rnd TKO.

  • xtreme_machine says:

    i knew it i called it like 3 weeks ago

    Buentello KO 1st 2-3 Minutes in

    he has better boxing than Duffee and way more experience

  • QueenKong says:

    I’ve always liked Paul and glad to see him back in UFC but I fear the consequences against this Duffee kid;he seems such a monster and is a top notch wrestler

  • aimres says:

    Duffee better take this fight to the ground or Buentello may defeat him.

  • Kamakosmo says:

    Who the hell is Duffee? Well, we’ll find out this night. I’ve always been a fan of Buentello, but I also like up and coming talent. I’ve only seen this kid fight once (Buentello countless times) and I am looking forward to this one. I will not even make a guess on this one, just will sit back and enjoy. Great fight and great Card.

    i love the headhunter and am glad to see him back in the ufc.I do recall you calling this matchup a few weeks ago machine,good call. hopefully this fight will be as entertaining as i hope.

    Duffee by KO

  • Bad Monkey says:

    Duffee by murder.

    No disrespect to Buentello, but this kid is too big, too strong, too vicious, and too young for him.

    Duffee via KO within the first two minutes.

  • edbuzz says:

    Is it just me or does anyone else recognize that Todd Dunfee is a steroid user? Just check out the pimples all over his back. His physique is unnatural for a 22 year old kid. I’m willing to bet he’s done a few cycles in his life. The UFC should do random home surprise drug test whether a fighter has a fight coming up or not.

    Oh, and the UFC should pay their fighters more money too.

  • Batman says:

    Paul Buentello should win this fight by decision if he comes up with a good gameplan to deal with duffee’s superior size and strength.

  • edub says:

    Ed youd be hard pressed to find a highschool in the US that doesnt have at least a couple of steroid users. I know they ran rampant in my school and they were huge in my district. Saying that hes done steroids in his life would be no surprise to me at all.

  • Angry Mike says:

    Buentello is a savvy fighter with good boxing, but if Duffee gets him up against the cage, the fight goes to the ground and Buentello is in for a long, long night. Duffee in top position is a scary proposition.
