I wonder if Marcello will decide to slug it out against Madadi. He's the most puzzling fighter because his BJJ is extremely good, but he'd rather just stand and exchange with guys like Justin Lawrence (very fast technical striker) and Sam Sicilia (hits like a truck), which leads to him getting knocked out. The guy must have no fight IQ.

I have Marcello and Madadi as equal in BJJ and stand up, but Madadi has much better takedowns so he gets the UD for me.

I suggest you re-evaluate this.

Yeah theres a good chance I'm wrong since I've only seen one Reza fight, and it was a Superior Challenge fight, but he's a BJJ guy who isn't afraid to take the fight down, has never been subbed and has 7 subs, and he trains BJJ. I mean Marcello might have better raw BJJ skills but in MMA, I think Madadi will be able to take him down and defend all of his submission attempts, which kind of evens it out to me.
