Jorge is a great fighter, I have alot of respect for the guy, but this isn't a good matchup for him. When Jorge wins, he beats guys that he can power through, guys that he is stronger than. If he can't push his opponent around and just bowl him over like he did with Dewees, he's not going to finish. That's why of his 3 UFC wins, only one is a finish.
Terry Martin definitely isn't the greatest fighter in the world. He's definitely not on the level of some of the other guys that have beat Rivera (Franklin, Silva and Lee Murray), but he's a strong dude.
The point I'm trying to make is that Terry Martin is a strong guy at 205 and he's coming down to a more appropriate weight for him. A weight that I think he can make easily if he improves his cardio and loses a little bit of the weight he walks around with. I don't expect him to lose much power.
Also, Terry has two career losses, both to guys who are good UFC lightheavyweights. Lambert and Irvin are no jokes. Neither is Jorge, but he's a much smaller fighter and definitely lacks some of the muscle that a fighter like Lambert has.
I'm just saying, if this fight turns into an inside war where they are going toe to toe, Jorge isn't just going to walk right through Terry Martin.
