This time though, we're talking about another thing.

AOmething that's pretty much an X factor: it's all suppositions.

Even though Florian looked like a "mini-Skelletor" at the 155 weigh-ins, he never had any real problems with being drained, gassing or stuff like that, if i remember correctly.
He didn't look 100% right at the weigh ins - too skinny for most people's taste - but he performed OK.

This time though, it's something new.
And, i've read, this is gonna be his first attempt at cutting down to 145. He had no practice cutts before.
So...it's gonna be something new for him.

I hope it doesn't affect him too much, because i think his fight against Nunes can be a very exciting fight.

Skill-wise i see Florian having the edge, but the weight issue hangs in the balance a lot for now.

Gonna make my mind up after watching the weigh-ins.
I think Nunes will look good standing his hands are a lot faster than Kenny's and I don't expect him to be bewildered by a jab or fearful of the power of a skeleton. He wasn't afraid to strike inside with Brown who is a lot more compact and muscled up at 145 than Kenny was even at 155. I also don't think much of Kenny's wrestling overall or bjj off of his back so I believe Nunes will dictate where the fight takes place. He trains with a lot of great BJJ guys also so even if he gets taken down I think he can avoid being subbed.

I've been going through this for a while, and Diego Nunes is going to win this fight. I don't see this any different than any of Florian's other losses. I think Diego throws him on the mat and wins a semi-boring decision in between kicking Kenny a bunch on the feet.

Omg.. Kenny looked like a skeleton at the weigh ins. I don't see anymore how he can win this war.

Kenny didn't look much different than how he usually looks in my opinion. The dude has always been scrawny.

I agree once again Kry, i think Kenny has the WAY better ground game, and better hands... I think Nunes have a better overall stand up game when it comes to a variety of strikes, but i see Kennys boxing being more crisp and clean, and i think Less is more when it comes to throwing flashy kicks...

If Kenny is on his game he should be able to take him down as Nunes is throwing kicks and make it a grinding fight with elbows making it obvious who won

Nunes is the stronger of the two. Which goes a long way when taking your opponent down and top control goes a long way to winning a decision.
