Please conduct ALL of your discussion in regards to Kendall "Da Spyder" Grove facing Mark "The Philippine Wrecking Machine" Munoz in this thread. All threads made in regards to this fight will be merged into this one.
at first i had munoz, but as the fight draws closer im beginning to sway towards grove. grove has the better striking ability, whereas munoz has KO power. munoz wrestling will come into play, but grove has some wicked triangles from his back.
Munoz looked like an absolute beast in his last fight but I can see Grove getting a submission. It won't be easy because of Munoz' work with Black House but Grove has a great guard and nearly submitted Ricardo Almeida.
Originally I thought Grove would take this, but as the fight draws closer I think that Munoz will have too much power. Jake Rosholt was doing very well against Grove before being caught in the triangle, I think Munoz will follow the same gameplan without being caught up in a sub.
Grove needs to bulk up and go to 205. He is a good fighter but he is to weak at 185. He is 6'6" he is still gonna have a huge reach advantage over everyone at LHW, hell he would have a reach advantage at HW.
