I'm not sold on who wins this, even though I had to pick one but I'm pretty sure it doesn't see round 2.

Gonzaga via submission.

Assuming he uses his BJJ for once.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

this was my main dark horse pick for the night, glad to see it work out! i thought schaub's speed and range would give gonzaga fits, but this was actually closer than i expected. gonzaga hung in there, tough guy.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?
