    Some great fights this weekend, Cormier vs Henderson will be very interesting, but I think we see Cormier emerge as a true contender

  • fanoftna33 says:

    Very good fights, I like Dillashaw but this may be a bit to soon for him, Lawler vs Ellenberger should be a blast as long as it lasts, but I will be going with Jake there. I think Henderson is getting blasted again and as much as I like him his big right will not save the day this time. Always a fan of Mizugaki so looking forward to seeing him get a big win also.

  • Venom-MMA says:

    Yeah Barao is too much at this stage for Dillashaw, he will finish him within the first 3 I think, as for Lawler and Ellenberger, I’ve got Lawler winning this one, he’s a much improved fighter, he showed great heart against Hendricks and I think he can finish Jake, great fight tho, both guys can bang. Gonna be a great card
