I'm a bit disappointed that after Dana thought Junie should be done in the UFC lol they give him Dave Kaplan on the main card.

I like the two finals and the two actually fights but the rest of these fights are a bit one sided or just bad.

So, does anyone think Bader's got a snowball's chance in hell to beat Magalhaes? I mean everything Bader ever does is take people down and lie in their guard waiting for something to happen, and everything Vinny ever does is pull guard and work on his submissions from there. To save some time, Vinny could just lie down on his back at the start of the fight so that Bader could lie down between his legs, and then we could take time how long it takes before Vinny finds a way to submit him.

Lol @ Kaplan vs Browning... Battle of the imbeciles.

Couchwarrior did you only see one of Bader's 3 fights because in the other two he was very active on the ground.

Also he has much better stand up then Vinny.

Bader should handle Vinny easily.

Has anyone even seen Baders real record? Only one fight of his has gone to a decision. Wake up people!

I'm picking Bader to beat Vinny if he can keep it standing.

cracked me up, +rep'd

I totally agree though. Im so shocked if Bader actually wins that fight. I was worried that Vinny would be too gunshy to take Kryz down the way he did, but he did it easy enough twice and put that sick bjj in use quick. Bader has horrible stand up so Im not worried one bit that Vinny could get KOed.

I'm excited to see AJ finally wreck Burns. As for Junie vs Kaplan, I hope they both knock each other out.

Bader doesn't have bad standup. Vinny has bad standup.

You mentioned that his looked smoother in another thread? Really? He looks awkward when he strikes, like he is just learning from scratch. Although, that's just my opinion.
