Very tough fight to predict. I guess that is why the odds are practically even.

Might just have to go with Diego, he was able to wrestle Hathaway down a couple times and Hathaway is a very big strong WW. Maybe we will finally see some vintage Nightmare GNP.

DAmn Diego has always been one of my favorite fighters, but he didn't look so good against Hathaway...

I think Paulo would of done a better job, but sometimes Diego is just on fire and kicks his opponents ass...

My heart says Diego, my brain is leaning a little more to Paulo... Tough call

Sig credit to my Homie! limba!

I was unimpressed by both fighters' last performance...
We will see who rebounds better...

Diego looked out of shape IMO, and I think Thiago is technically better...
