Strange voting. Colton will embarrass Ricci with his Fitch-esque grinding wrestling strategy.

Ricci will likely drop to LW after this fight but I expect the fact he has Rory and GSP to mentor him should give him an edge here.

Pretty sure all of his fights have been a LW. I think he could probably make it to FW. Colton is probably going to drop as well.

I remember when Pat Curran totally demolished Mike Ricci. I seriously doubt that Colton will be able to replicate that. So I think Ricci will take it.

Don't know how Colton can win this.

Ricci does seem to tire, possibly from fighting bigger guys - there is some room for Smith to get a win.

I believe most, if not all his fights were at LW. I'm not sure why he moved up.

Most TUF contestants fight one weight class above their normal fight weight, since they have to make the cut 5 or 6 times in six weeks.

I love the way Goldberg says 'the Canadian' as though seven continents separate us from the Americans.

That's a lot less annoying than being reminded Colton is a soldier every time they say his name.
