Man, been so busy lately I didn't even know Jlau was on here. But hey it's Boston...so he should take it over with a quick submission.

Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

Not sure why everyone is so confident in Lauzon. His stand up is below average, his chin is suspect and his cardio is pretty bad. Not to mention he's a very inconsistent fighter. Granted if this fight hits the ground, Johnson is finished. But if Johnson can stuff him, he wins this fight easily.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

I don't necessarily think his chin is a huge problem. He has only even been stopped via strikes 3 times and other than the Pettis head kick that would have stopped anyone in the division, he hasn't been stopped via strikes since 2008 and that was to Florian, the other one being by Masvidal.

Sometimes I bet on impulse. Figured he has home court advantage so gotta go with Jlau! Plus he's so much more explosive and threatens off his back. His transition is wickedly quick. So even with Michael Johnson going for the takedown I can see Joe scrambling and ending it.

But I do think Michael Johnson will try to keep it standing. That was my thought process in a matter of seconds before I bet 1,000,000 DOLLARS.

Johnson by vicious knockout or Lauzon by slick submission. 60/40 Johnson.

Lauzon is going to give the Boston crowd what they are looking for, and that's blood.

War Creepy Joe.
