Very interesting! Seems like most people had Rumble Johnson picked before this. I think he's an exciting fighter but was kinda pulling for Yoshida - not based on analysis, just a big like for judo in MMA.
What does this do to the odds? And is Johnson just too big for WW, or is it reasonable to put 100% of the weight cut issues on his knee injury?
I'm taking Yoshida but like I said, it's more nuthuggery than objective analysis. Johnson's a strong, explosive guy, but Yoshida can be a pretty wily fighter.
