That's a good base to win fights in the UFC. I thought he may have won that fight vs Michael Johnson on TUF.

I'm calling Caceres as the underdog who surprises people & expecting him to win his fight against Garcia.
Lol, you're talking about him "never being stopped by tko" in his whopping 7 pro fights, 6 of which are against people nobody has ever heard of on local promotions a handful of people attended. the guy got on the UFC through some TUF subs and his personality and has 3:18 of octagon time to really judge his worth has a fighter and he looked dismal. I'll grant you one thing though, he does have a better chance of winning a UFC fight than James Toney ever did.

Garcia has 3 times as many pro fights as Caceres and in that time he's lost to a LOT of good fighters. He's lost to Roger Huerta, Mike Brown, Mark Hominick, Cole Miller and Manny Gamburyan, but he is not going to lose to Alex Bruce Leeroy Caceres lol.

LOL @ people thinking Garcia has a chance in this fight.

Bruce Leeroy is the next Kimbo Slice. He's even from florida!

Nah, I'm kidding about that.

People forget Garcia lost to Nam Phan. Nam Phan and Leeroy both fought Michael Johnson on TUF and it is possible the skill difference between them isn't massive.

Garcia is a lot like Diego Sanchez, Antonio Margarito and other stereotypical mexican fighters. They tend to be one dimensional, and they have a tendency to be repetitive which can cause them to be very predictable.

Don't get me wrong Garcia is a good fighter and a tough guy. But, in the fight game being predictable really isn't an option. I think Bruce Leeroy will win this.

Garcia should win this, but given his propensity for just swinging for the fences with looping punches, I'd say Caceres has a puncher's chance. I'm sure Jackson will draw up a solid gameplan to exploit Caceres' weaknesses, but the minute the cage door closes - Leonard will forget it.

I was all over betting on Mackens over Caceres, but will probably just stay away from this one while they duke it out.

Caceres is getting knocked out and then getting his leaving papers after this one.

Bruce Leroy is not good enough to handle Garcia's chin and relentless pace. Bad night for Leroy.
