I see Mitrione finishing this one on the ground with strikes. I think Shaubs only real chance here is to hold Meathead down for three rounds, and I don't see that happening.

Agreed, as much as I want Meathead to lose for obvious reasons, I think that Schaub will have a really tough time getting the W. I don't think Mitrione struggles anywhere near as much.

Thanks to Killz for the great sig!

Always kind of liked Matt, despite how strange of a person he is.

Here's to hoping he KO's Aaron Hernandez...I mean Brendan Schaub.

Should be a comfortable win for Mitrione unless Schaub is able to win ugly. Fortunately for Mitrione, he doesn't have a non existent ground game or take down defense like Lavar Johnson did. He may not necessarily be strong in those categories, but it seems like Lavar is the worst of the worst in the heavyweight division. The guy got mounted by Pat Barry.

Don't be foolish brehs.

The BJJ Phenom Brendan Schaub will easily shut Mitrione down and neutralize his game in the process.

Werdum, Mur and Nog are all shaking at the one the only the Hybrid BJJ Phenom Brendan Schaub!

Do I detect a hint of sarcasm?

Obviously I'm for Meathead but I do think Schaub's ground game is good enough to give him big problems. I love him but he aint no nog on the ground. (yet)

I guess I wouldn't really be surprised if Schuab won, but I think Mitrione will take it.

I see this fight being like Schaub vs Gonzaga. Schaub being the quicker and overall better fighter technically with his stand up will out box Mitrione on his way to a decision. I could see either fighter possibly knocking out the other fighter.
