I won't make any real predictions, but I'm definitely pulling for BJ in the main fight. It will be tough for him if it goes past 2 rounds though.
And I'm really pulling for the Axe Murderer! In his fight with Chuck I said it would be ok if he lost as long as he put up a good fight. Done. This time though....he needs to win. He has to find a way to stay close to Jardine in order to nullify the reach difference.
And Tito.....well, see you in Strikeforce or where ever you go.
