Could you imagine that? I'd lose my mind
Great card filled with what can only be described as fireworks! It looks like a 'passing of the torch' car as well for 2 fights, but we'll just have to wait and see.
Bendo vs. Diaz- I see Benson just being to strong and getting takedowns on Diaz. Nate will pepper him on the feet, but I don't think it'll be enough. It'll be a scrappy fight, that's for sure.
Verdict: Bendo by UD
Shogun vs. Gustafsson- Tough fight for me as I can really see this going either way. Gus has the reach, but Shogun is a berserker and has heart/chin for days. If Shogun gasses via too much grappling and grinding on the cage, I say Gus UD. But, If Shogun clips him 1 or 2 times, I say he finishes via TKO rd 2. This matchup has fireworks written all over it!!!
Verdict: Shogun via TKO Rd 2
Bj vs. Rory- It's simple, what BJ shows up? Rory is younger, stronger and faster... yet he could still lose to the craftier Penn. I want to see Penn from the Diego fight, because that Penn would catch Rory and end the fight brutally. My head says Rory and my gut says Penn. I think BJ comes out round 1 and takes it decisively and then gasses and we see another fight like BJ/Fitch, although Rory could inflict much more damage.
Verdict: BJ via split dec.
I'm going with the old guard just because I think they have a bit left in the tank. Either way, all us fans get an epic, FREE, HD card and as they say, Everybody wins!
