O'Brien is a great dark horse to me who has an excellent chance of coming out of this the winner. O'Brien is a good wrestler who had an insane amount of hype going into his fight with Arlovski but lets be honest his only losses are to Andrei Arlovski (before Fedor stole his soul, top HW at the time), Cain Velasquez (Jake is a wrestler, Cain a better one naturaly bigger guy) and to Jon Jones who again was a better wrestler. O'Brien beat Heath Herring and that is no easy task. Thing is he is matched up with a guy who showed his TD defense is not that good. Jake could easily hold Mousasi down and if Manhouf makes it to the finals that will be an easy win for Jake.
IMO my money is on Jake taking the whole thing.
