I like this fight a lot! I want Thomson to get the win so he can at least fight for the title as his last hoorah. But this will be a solid fight for both of them.

EDIT: Thanks for the heads up StunGun

Josh Thompson is gonna maul Michael Johnson. This is gonna put him in a prime spot.... he either gets his Pettis fight which he's been chasing or he gets his Melendez rematch... the UFC has all of the Strikeforce archives so they can put some sick highlights together for promo.

This is win/win for The Punk. It's his fight to lose. And wouldn't it be funny to see the two guys that fought 3 times for the Strikeforce LW title now fighting for the UFC belt when so many people on the forums back then said that both of these guys would get eaten alive in the UFC.

Good times.

Thomson will win and win easily. He is right up there with Benson and Gilbert as the elite of the division, Michael Johnson was finished by Reza Madadi a mere year ago. Trouncing journeymen in Tibau and Lauzon who have no stand out victories does not change that.

Thomson by whatever he wants.

Thomson is hanging with Melendez at his best. I don't see any area that Johnson could give Josh trouble in, bar a flash KO.


Fedor, Mir, Lytle, Serra, Hendo, Chuck, Minowaman, Maynard, Forrest, Hunt
Pickett, Cerrone, Matt Brown, Bisping, Weidman, Barnett, Lawler

Terrible fight for MJ. Thomson by easy sub in the first.

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

Love it. Those two should put on a good, fast paced striking clinic.

I'm not particularly fond of nor down on either of these guys as far as fanfare in concerned. However, unlike seemingly everyone else, I'm not overlooking Johnson. I have a feeling he's going to surprise some people here and pick up this win.
