And that's why Sass will submit him

About time Sass gets beat, he is not a good fighter. His best win is Michael Johnson, who has no submission defence, and he was almost knocked out in that fight. And please dont bring up Wolkmann - a guy, who gets nearly submitted by Efrain Freaking Escudero, can't be considered serious, besides, he has no wins worth mentioning.

Wiman by TKO.

I'm rooting for fellow Oklahoman Matt Wiman but I don't think he is able to avoid the submission. If Sass can catch a guy like Volkman then I think he can do the same to Wiman. But I hope I'm wrong.

Sass has very suspect stand-up. Wiman needs to keep it on the feet at all costs, Sass has very poor technique especially with kicks.

I have picked against him in the past. Dude is just super slick on the ground.

His only notable submission win is against Wolkmann, who doesn't have the best sub defense out there. I'm not saying Sass has a bad ground game, but he sure is not the fighter you are making him out to be. Look what happened to Sotiropoulus, he in fact has a better BJJ game IMO, and decent stand-up, but it didn't help him when he faced some more decent competition.

I'm the same I always bet against him, evidently wrong for doing it.

Wiman is definitely the better all round mixed martial artist but you can't deny the sub game of Sass and I think that's where he wins again.


Thanks to Leakler for the sig

I think Wiman is going to blitz him and put him away quickly finishing it with hard ground strikes.

I agree, I think Matt is the better overall fighter. But Sass is a submission specialist and he appears to be very good at it. If he pulls out another sub here, I think people will have to take notice. But hopefully Wiman puts him to sleep.
