Statistically, I would say Brookins vs Johnson.

I could see Watson defeating Brookins, though. Watson finished that last fight, quickly.

Johnson vs Nam Phan. Johnson is 6', Nam Phan is 5'6. I think Johnson will keep Nam Phan out at the end of his punches. Nam Phan will come forwards to close the gap. That puts him in the perfect place for Johnson to take him down. The only thing bad about that match up for Johnson is his cardio. Nam Phan's definitely got better cardio than him. When Johnson gets tired and slows down, Nam Phan could push the pace and win it.

Johnson will need to slow down the pace of the fight and use his reach more to avoid gasing.

Both fights could go either way, I'm thinking.

Hard work is the only real PED.

Prospects -- Doo Hoo Choi, Ashlee Evans Smith, Mickey Gall, Sage Northcutt, Thomas Almeida, Yair Rodriguez, Lorenz Larkin, Robert Whittaker

Brookins vs Watson - I think Brookins takes this fight easily, Watson is a good fighter who will get signed but in his entire career he's never won a decision. He's 0-3 when it goes to the judges so the question is can he submit Brookins in 2 rounds....I don't think so.

Phan vs Johnson - Johnson can over power Phan but he needs to win the first two rounds, Phan is vulnerable he lost the first rounds to Spencer and Cody and Johnson is twice the fighter he is.

I could def see it. Nam and Brookins have the most big show experience. That doesnt really mean as much in a normal situation, but I think experience plays the biggest role in the show for the most part (there are some exceptions). Being able to handle that situation and deal with the crazy pressure that is put on a person has to be tough. Brookins and Nam have been in the biggest fights and are more likely to be able to cope with it. That, and they are both pretty solid.

I'm going with Brookins/Johnson, but all 4 of the guys left are pretty solid so any combination wouldn't surprise me too much.

I definitely see Brookins in the final. I think he is head and shoulders above everyone in the house. I hope its hun and Nam in the finals but wont be surprised if Johnson makes it through.

I'm surprised.
I actually like all the guys in the finals this year, haha.
Brookins I think will win, and I hope he does. The guy is a class act and has an incredible skillset. I hope he beats Nam in the finale. I like Nam but his over the top celebrations are slightly annoying.

I think it will be Brookins vs Johnson in the finale. I have been calling that for a while now. Brookins looks like the best fighter in the house at the moment.

Brookins/Johnson is the most likely scenario, the one thing I'm absolutely sure of though is that the winner of Watson/Brookins will beat the winner of Johnson/Nam no matter who it is. The real finale is Watson/Brookins as far as I'm concerened, they are clearly the best two guys in my mind with Brookins being the best of a bad bunch.
