I just don't want to see Big Baby get KO'd again. Rarely do I ever have an emotional reaction after a KO, but it seriously hurt me to see Marcus get KO'd in the semi's.

From what we’ve seen on the show it looks like Marcus has the advantage on paper. Then again TUF has really slanted things this season and no one is unaware of it. But I can’t shake the feeling that Mittrione was portrayed as lazy in TUF. After the ice-bag on shoulders episode they never showed him training hard. Since he didn’t gas instantly like many others and TUF has really slanted everything this season, I personally think Matt does train hard. He also brought a lot of focus to his matches.

I do think he is a drama-princess and maybe has Munchausen’s complex. He certainly hammed those ‘injuries’ up without ever being hurt but did focus come fight time.

From the fights we know Marcus will have the advantage on the ground and Matt will have the advantage standing. Most likely Marcus has the advantage overall. But if Matt comes in focused and prepared for the ground he has a solid chance.

Personally, I want Matt to win, because Marcus’ outburst was a spectacle of stupidity and emotional immaturity. It makes me wonder how he deals with people in his every day life. And yes, because of this bias I hope Mittrione takes it.

This fight will probably last a minute. I think Marcus should get him down and sub him really easily. Big mismatch if you ask me, I guess Matt has a punchers chance.

Simple...

If Mitrione can keep it standing, he wins. He does have some pop in his leather.

If he gets taken down, he loses.

I'm really hoping for Marcus to win this, and then continue to develop his stand-up technique, because his ground game is pretty damn solid for a behemoth.

Big Baby by TKO/KO.
He will bounce back from the loss to Schaub.
He is gonna use his size and take it on the ground.

I really hope this guy has worked hard on his striking, because it was terrible on the show. I hope he wins by KO.
