I don't see that happening. As Marlon said, "he can obviously take a punch". Plus Wiman seems to be very good on the ground, something Noah was not. This, I think, will be the best fight of the quarters, but I pick Wiman to come out on top.

Manny is really good, but Wiman is better overall. Noah had a crappy ground game whereas Wiman's is his strong point. I think Wiman will submit him or TKO him in the 2nd.

I also like the rest of the matchups, but I would of rather seen Gray and Manny, and Melendez and Wiman. I was really impressed with Cole vs Lauzon though, very close fight




What a stud

I don't see Wiman submitting Manny. I think Manny is too short limbed and strong. I do see Manny getting Ko'ed though.

I hate the matchups personally. Corey Hill looked lost in his fight against Emerson but I attribute that to his first time ever fighting in a cage. I'm not saying he's great by any stretch but like Diaz himself said, I don't think anyone wants to fight Hill. He's so long-limbed that it would prevent problems for a lot of ground fighters and I really think he'll be a lot different now that he's got the butterflys out.

I also didn't like the Miller - Lauzon matchup. Cole Miller was VERY impressive in his first fight and I don't think it was right to put him against Lauzon, Penn's best fighter. I mean come on, Lauzon knocked out Jens Pulver, put him against Melendez, probably Pulver's weakest fighter. I definitely agreed with Jens here, not a good draw at all for his fighters. The moods in the team vans said as much. Team Penn was pumped up while Team Pulver were all very downcast because they clearly got shafted here.

I agree 100%. Penn is probably my least favorite MMA fighter. BJ seems to do everything he can to insult and belittle Jens yet people seem to believe that he's the good guy in this fued. It makes no sense at all to me either. Hopefully, Pulver will take it to him at the finale and shut his mouth for a while.

I feel bad for Jens, because BJ and Dana are both basically agreeing that 3 of BJ's fighters should go to the semis, but that's the way it looks.

I think that the only matchup of the 3 that Jens really has a shot at winning is Manny v Wiman, and I think that as long as Wiman keeps that standing Manny is pretty much f*cked.

Manny has good standup guys, don't forget it. He also has real heavy hands.
