I imagine this will look a lot like Jones/Shogun did on the feet just without the horrid GNP, Shogun lasts the full 15 but Gus takes a lop sided decision.

I think Gus takes it unless Shogun can really get this fight to the floor continuously with himself being the one on top.

I expect Gustaffson to do some damage on the feet to Shogun as well as over powering Shogun in the grappling aspect of the fight. I'm thinking Gustaffson will prove that he is a top five light heavyweight in this fight. It's hard to say whether he'll stop Shogun or not but either way I'm thinking he'll do some damage.

Gustaffson will do good, but he is going to get KTFO

Can't really pick. Gustaf is very good but has never beat anyone like SHogun, even a crumbling Shogun. He could come up and destroy him. But if the Shogun vs. Forrest 2 or Machida 2 comes out he is better than Gustaf right now.

I think Shogun still has Pride. Wins this on heart and aggression that Gustaf won't handle.

Shogun Rd 2 KO.

I'm not completely sure but I don't think Gustafson is ready to get hit hard. The Vera fight was a war because among other things, Shogun started to gas and because Vera is a battle-tested veteran who has experience in furious battles. We'll see what Gustafson is able to handle, hopefully he won't back down because the division needs him to be the real deal if anyone is going to challenge Jones beyond Machida or possibly Mr. Wonderful.

Gustaf will play it cautiously and possibly win on points, unless Shogun can control the fight on the ground. Shogun needs to show this guy just how hard he can hit though and keep Gustaf guessing.

Shogun takes a nap before the end of the second.
