I think Urijah wins this by UD. I think he'll take the decision with a crafty veteran game plan.

I think Faber takes it but this fight should be good and hopefully Mcdonald can come out as a star because I worry this will make him look like a guy who stumbles against top talent.

Faber is the Belfort of the 135 division, he'll take out the up and coming potential title challengers, but will probably never hold the belt again himself.

Yeah hopefully it doesn't turn into an Erik Silva sort of thing.

I'm rooting for the California kid, but I'd like to see McDonald be the future.

I think MayDay is an elite fighter, but I don't think anyone is beating Faber at 135 outside of Barao and maybe Cruz. (I say maybe just because they have each beaten each other and I am not sure who would win again)

Rooting for McDonald because I like his style. You only hear positivity and respect from the guy, something a lot of people with great talent think they don't need. Refreshing to see high level pros behave like that. As far as the fight, I think this is tied with the Main Event of this card for best fight of the month on paper. Expecting great things. I think McDonald can get to Faber. His striking is better and faster. I see him staying on the feet and Faber being forced to try to put this fight on the mat. McDonald KO before round 3.

I like MMA less because of this forum
