yeah looks like Tomasz is dropping to middleweight. it'll be interesting to see how he handles the cut. regardless i think Drew will smash him.

drwal is the more talented all around fighter, but nobody has heavier hands in the mw division than mcfedries, bad match up for tomasz.

No one has heavier hands in the MW division??

Have you seen Dan Henderson hit anyone lately?

Henderson has that rock solid right, but every one of Drew's punches are for keeps, he lands and it probably hurts more than almost anyone else in the division.

Cool matchup. Interested in seeing how TD takes the weightcut, a little added speed could help hit out in this one.

Drew hits hard as ****, but doesn't like getting hit much...and seems to not be prepared mentaly for some fights.

I think TD will catch him off guard with a quick takedown and pound him out from side control.

Drwal rnd 1 TKO

Yes! Glad to see Mcferies is back and has a good match up for him to keep moving forward. Drews gonna take him out brutally IMO. Drew 1st RD Brutal Knockout

I'm a huge fan of Drwal, but i'm worried about the weight cut. I'm not sure he'll have the power that he had at LHW. At any rate, I think he'll beat Drew in an exciting 1 round fight.

War Drwal!!!

I got McFedries in this one. Either way somebody is going to get KTFO. Thats how Drew fights kill or be killed.

let's take into consideration Drew's recent camp switch when Pat Miletich told him to get the eff out. That's got to weigh heavy on him, he's been there since the beginning man!
I feel bad for the guy. Anyone know for sure where he's training now? MFS is a great place to start out, but I think fighters stagnate there and have to move on to get better. Pat is still fighting. How can someone devote themselves to training other fighters when they are training too? Doesn't make sense to me.

Drew is a good guy and great striker, but really needs to work on his ground game. He looked really uncomfortable when he hit the ground with Thales Leites. Plus he's been really hot/cold winning only 3 of his last 7 bouts. Hopefully his new camp gets him back on track and mentally solid so he can use that dynamite in his hands.

I didnt think Drwal looked that small @ LHW.

Its going to be a massacre for Drawl, Drew R1 tko.

The cut will hurt Drwal's power, and well his gastank too but thats kinda irrelevant considering he's fighting Mcfeds. Drew only has to stay put and do his normal training, therefore Mcfeds Rd1 TKO

tough fight to call honestly. flip a coin here.......

Drwal looks like a pretty big LHW, so I'm surprised he's dropping a class. Awesome matchup though. I don't think the weight cut will affect him to much, because I don't see this fight turning into a battle of attrition.

Very intresting that Drwal is moving to Middleweight. I thought looking at his frame in last few fights he could make it to Middleweight. But, why move out of a division that you've been doing well in? Wouldn't you wait until you start doing bad. He had some momentum.

That was a really good fight :) Sorry for all the Drew's fans . I was just surprised when some people said Drwal was gonna get smashed etc... I said it was gonna be the other way around but hey I would never predicted a 2 nd rd sub lol.
Thumbs up for Drwal !
