The fans win, because there is no way in any way, shape, fashion, or form this fight sucks.

Lauzon seems to have improved his cardio and while I don't think of either guy as a serious title threat they're both fun as hell to watch and they should put on the FOTN, I'll go with Miller taking a close split decision though.

Lauzon may have the better striking, not by much, and Miller has the BJJ advantage....too close to call. Split Decision I think maybe leaning Millers way.

Lauzon is really good on the ground, he's only a purple belt but he's a beast in the 1st round. He almost got Soti in a kimura if my memory serves me right, he was winning until he gassed. I think if Lauzon is going to win it will be by sub in R1, otherwise it's all Jim Miller. I think Jim is a better BJJ guy than Joe, I just think Joe has the ability to catch him off guard early.

What a ******* fight. I can't wait for this card. JDS-Cain, Belcher-Okami, Lauzon-Miller, Leben-Vemola and Boetsch-Phillipou. Awesome, awesome card. Taking J-Lau in this one, would love to see him put on a run of really impressive victories. This is taking FOTN!

Yeah this fights is going to be awesome. I like both fighters a lot, but I think Lauzon will take it. Never know though, Jim has surprised me more than once ready.

I think Jim is better at just about everything and a level above Joe as a fighter.

Eh I think they are on about the same level. Mid tier. Neither of them will be title holders and I wouldn't put either in the top 5 either.
