I'm liking Ramsey's well roundedness that he didn't need in the first couple fights, but it sure came out against that Woo guy.

I've only seen Tony's last 2 fights and he looks like the best and most technical striker on the show. My only question is how he is on the wrestling side of things if someone can enlighten me. I'm picking Ramsey because I like him better, but he looked a little sloppy and gassed in the chris cope fight so I could definitely see him getting KTFO.

we've not seen much of Tonys ground game. Only clue we have is that Lesnar seemed confident in Tonys wrestling. So far, Brock hasnt said anything unless he means it. If he's not concerned then I'm willing to go with the idea that Tony knows what hes doing.

Did Brock not say something along the lines of 'hopefully Tonys pure athleticism will cover up some of the holes in his game...', or something along those lines. Not sure what is to be inferred from this (if anything), but i thought it was interesting.

I still fancy Tony in this to be honest. I'm not sold on Ramsays wrestling being all that great, and Tony's boxing looked absolutely outstanding in his semi final fight. I mean, really top drawer. He is a complete knob, clearly, but i always like the best fighter to win* and i think he is that.



*Unless the lesser talented fighter happens to be one of which i am a fan of (which is usually the case) in which case this lovely little ideal goes flying out the window

I thought Chris Cope was hurting Ramsey with those arm punches and jabs he threw. Ramsey didn't gas towards the end of the 1st, those punches Cope landed were having an effect on him. (Ramseys chin may be suspect.) The way Ramsey drops his hands and is wild with his striking makes me think a good striker like Ferguson could pick him apart.

Looking through Ferguson's stats, he won his division in high school and college with good credentials.

I like Ramsey and his happy go lucky attitude, but think Ferguson takes this.
