Wouldn't that be hilarious that after all this hype around joe he ends up not getting past the quarter finals?

Joe might have some problems with Manny if they fight. Manny is just as explosive as Joe, pretty much the same on the ground, and is way stronger. That would be a good fight.

I think he is a lock for the finals. But I want to see more of his BJJ before I pick him to win

All that being said, Joe has grappled with guys bigger than Manny in the open weight tournaments. Its bot like he will be completely un prepared.

No one is a lock in this season.

As far Joe/Manny, Joe may have competed with guys bigger but that doesn't mean he will be able to handle a fighter just as explosive as he is.

I hope it's Joe/Manny in the finals, I think that would be the best match-up out of any of the remaining fighters for the finals. Brandon/Diaz would be fun too.

I think Joe will lose if he has to fight Corey. Hes just way too big for him.

Joe is easily the most talented guy on this season. Corey won't make it through the next round, and yeah, Manny is a tough dude, but Lauzon is a way smarter fighter than Manny, and he won't be able to handle Lauzon unless he catches him with a big punch or something.

I love how after one fight against a can Joe is all of a sudden unstoppable. Yes, he's a good fighter, but he's no where near a lock to get to the finals or win the whole thing.

We don't know, Lauzon might not be able to handle Mannys judo, Brandons striking, Nates unorthodox style, Millers ground game, Grays wrestling, Wimans well rounded skills (this of course if Wiman and Gray advance which I'm sure they will), it's just too hard to say and to say Joe is "easily" the most talented guy on the show is ridiculous. He might be the most talented guy, but "easily" is pushing it. He is not god people, he's not the Michael Bisping of Season 5, he actually has competition.

Basically the quarter finals are going to be a blast..

Cole, Brandon, Diaz, Hill, Joe, Manny, Wiman, Gray, that looks pretty good to me. Havent seen Marlon Sims, he could take Wiman, you never know, no one has seen him fight, from the way people talk it seems like Weems is way outclassed, Gray will probably crush him.
