I think he'll try takedowns, but the story of the fight will be if he can avoid being knocked out in the meantime as well as if he can hold Maldonado down(which I think he can).

Plus, conditioning. I think he's bound to gas.

He can.
He has a pretty good wrestling base. Plus, he trains at AKA with the likes of: Velasquez, Cormier, Lawal, Koscheck, Fitch. Those guys know wrestling.

And he's much bigger and stronger than Maldonado, so i don't see a problem in controlling him on the ground.
And Maldonado's BJJ isn't anything special...

So...

He can easily grind out a decision on the ground.

Maybe even force a stoppage.

Don't see the latter happening at all, because if and when he does get him down, he won't do anything other than lay in Fabio's guard. And as the fight drags down, it's going to get a lot more difficult for him considering his poor conditioning. I think Maldonado will probably stop him with a body shot again to be honest.

3 of his last 4 fights went to decision.

I don't know why you think his cardio is that poor...

On the other side, Maldonado has only gone to decision once in his lsat 12 fights - even though he lost only once.

For all i know, his cardio is a bigger question mark.

Because I've watched him fight.

Maldonado has good conditioning, rarely ever gets tired. Not a question mark at all.

Good fight, even though i think both guys are overrated. Maldonado was getting dominated on the feet by McSweeney before he gassed, so he's no worldbeater on the feet. And before he smashed Romero (who i think is dreadful), Kingsbury didnt look great in either fights.

That said, i think Kingsbury takes a scrappy Unanimous Decision.

Brits love to exaggerate to make their fighters look good.

You'd swear if you heard it from here that McSweeney was going to stop Maldonado and beat himself. In reality, McSweeney did a pretty good job in the first round keeping the fight in kicking range and landing kicks while utilizing good movement, but doing that takes a ton of energy. He was foolish if he thought he could keep that up for 15. The second he slowed down Maldonado hunted him down and kicked the shit out of him.

Kingsbury is much less capable on the feet than McSweeney, at any rate, and he's a big immobile guy that'll be right there for Maldonado.

That body shot in the 2nd broke McSweeneys rib.

Let me see if I can find a source for it.... Here:

Following the loss to Fabio Maldonado at UFC 120 last year, he went back to training with Lucien Carbin in Amsterdam.

I came out of that fight with a broken rib and a cracked rib on the same side, he says.

Now what "bullshit" were you talking about, exactly?

The Ultimate Fighting Championship issued medical suspensions to all 20 competitors from this past weekend's UFC 120 event, and four fighters could be out of action for half a year.

Main-card fighters Mike Pyle, Cheick Kongo and Travis Browne, as well as preliminary-card fighter Rob Broughton, face six-month suspensions.

UFC 120 took place Oct. 16 at The 02 in London and aired in the U.S. via same-day delay.

As with most overseas shows, the UFC acts as its own regulatory body since no hosting athletic commission is available. The efforts are headed by UFC Vice President of Regulatory and Governmental Affairs Marc Ratner, who's also the former head of the Nevada State Athletic Commission. In addition to the medical suspensions, Ratner hires a company to conduct drug testing (results TBA), though official salaries are not disclosed for such shows.

Pyle's 180-day suspension resulted from a hand injury, though he can be cleared early if an X-ray detects no problems with his right thumb and scaphoid (wrist hone). Regardless, he faces a mandatory 30-day suspension with no contact for 30 days for precautionary reasons.

Kongo's 180-day suspension also resulted from a hand injury, and he, too, can be cleared early if an X-ray detects no problems with his right thumb. Regardless, he faces a mandatory 30-day suspension with no contact for 21 days for precautionary reasons.

His opponent, Browne, received a 180-day suspension for a left-hand injury, though he can be cleared early if an X-ray detects no problems with his thumb. Regardless, he faces a mandatory 30-day suspension with no contact for 30 days for precautionary reasons.

Broughton's 180-day suspension is due to possible shoulder and chest injuries, and to be cleared early, he must undergo both X-rays and an MRI. Even if cleared early, his mandatory suspension runs 45 days with no contact for 30 days for precautionary reasons.

Pyle and Broughton actually were winning fighters, and Kongo and Browne fought to a draw.

Other suspensions, all for precautionary reasons, include (courtesy mixedmartialarts.com):

Michael Bisping: Suspended 30 days with no contact for 21 days
Yoshihiro Akiyama: Suspended 45 days with no contact for 30 days
Dan Hardy: Suspended 30 days with no contact for 21 days
Carlos Condit: Suspended 14 days with no contact for 14 days
John Hathaway: Suspended 30 days with no contact for 21 days
James Wilks: Suspended 30 days with no contact for 21 days
Claude Patrick: Suspended 14 days with no contact for 14 days
Cyrille Diabate: Suspended 45 days with no contact for 30 days
Alexander Gustafsson: Suspended 14 days with no contact for 14 days
Vinicius Queiros: Suspended 45 days with no contact for 30 days
Paul Sass: Suspended 14 days with no contact for 14 days
Mark Holst: Suspended 14 days with no contact for 14 days
Spencer Fisher: Suspended 14 days with no contact for 14 days
Curt Warburton: Suspended 30 days with no contact for 21 days
James McSweeney: Suspended 45 days with no contact for 21 days
Fabio Maldonado: Suspended 30 days with no contact for 21 days
He's full of shit.

He's just soft in his body and tried to make it seem like he was injured to save face. He would've gotten a 6 month suspension for that if he had a broken rib.
