So I think I am gonna go with Rumble over DC tonight, not sure why because I think DC is the more proven fighter here with solid wins over guys like Josh Barnett, Bigfoot Silva, Big Country Roy Nelson, and Frank Mir. All fighters that have some element they do better than Rumble does, as well as coming off a loss to Jones that has motivated DC to what it really means to fight for a title. Still, I think Rumble takes this tonight.
I’m disappointed that Rose “Thug” Namajunas’ fight got pulled tonight due her opponent being deemed medically unfit to fight due to illness. I really wanted to see her with a convincing win to get title shot against Joanna Jedrzejczyk.
I think Arlovski, Cerrone, and Dong Hyun Kim also gets wins tonight.
In the Wiedman vs Belfort fight, I honestly don’t know who will win, Weidman won very impressively over Lyoto Machida but in the last 3 years he’s only fought 3x, 2 of those against Anderson Silva. Meaning he’s not a very consistent champion and that he has more than few question marks about him.
With Vitor, it’s hard to say what will happen as he even less consistent over the years and he has a dark cloud over most of his wins due to TRT and other PED over his long career.
So even if Vitor or Weidman wins very convincingly tonight, it will just raise more questions than answers.
