Two of my favorite fighters, love this fight but they are both unique challenges for the title, shame one has to lose at this stage.

I favor Gus because of his movement and volume of attacks, he has the fitness to do it all night which makes him very hard to outpoint. He also has mad power and is the bigger fighter.

Gegard will have to use his great jab, kicks and head movement to get inside, land strikes and get a body lock. He can definitely strike with Gus, but he risks getting tired and being hit hard when he tries to advance. His best opportunity to do damage will be on the ground, he should have no problem maintaining top position for a minute at least. Gus should be able to scramble back to feet, but he won't do it without being hit.

This should be a great display of MMA by two respectful young fighters.
