Surprised to see Bezerra as the favourite here, as Sicilia has good wrestling and brutal KO power. He hasn't got the most technical striking, but neither does Bezerra.

Interesting to see Luiz Cane again. He has very good striking, but the only problem is that his chin seems to be terrible. He still should take this fight easily.

^Agreed, I'd got Sam Sicilia by 2nd Rd. KO

I hope Rony wins because I like his nick name and his hockey mask. Big horror movie fan over here. I appreciate the reference. That being said though, Sicilia will probably win, but I don't think his gas tank is the best so we will see.

^Not exactly the more original and abstract reference. Just about everyone has stuck on a hockey mask and done a Jason routine.

It's not just the mask, it's more of the fact that he runs with it by having his nick name be "Jason". It's not a one time thing, so I like it. Horror movie references always bring me back.

I hate them, but thats mainly because its almost Halloween and I've already seen about 1000 scream masks in my lifetime already.

For this fight Massaranduba is dropping from 185 to 155.

Hope his extreme weight loss program pays off.

No, he was the Brazilian Kenny Florian fighting on TUF two weight classes higher than he should. Sadly their giving him the biggest muther****er in the division so it should be an interesting fight.

Ha. You're right.

He looked like one of the bigger middleweights on the show. I thought it was all natural.

I think Massaranduba takes it. He's faster and more explosive & has better technique.

Tibau is slow and lumbering like a LW Tank Abbott.
