If this stays on the feet, Hardonk will crush Sanchez. If Sanchez can get it to the ground (probably not that difficult since Hardonk hasn't stopped anyone in the past), Sanchez will win via GnP.

I think Hardonk's ground game is improving. He has pretty good control from the bottom and can usuallyy get the ref to stand it back up by keeping the guy from doing any damage. If only he had some takedown defense . . .

I'm going with Sanchez in this fight. His striking is improving and his ground game is way better than Hardonk. I don't think this fight will be as boring as some think.

Hardonk KO first round, if it was neil wain, same outcome except maybe faster.

this should be very entertaining, but hardnok is a much more skilled striker than sanchez. i think the two trade bombs but hardnok lands more crisp fluid shots and puts him away in the first. this could be fight of the night.

Boring if your bored by huge KOs

Anyways, I think Hardonk will score a big KO in the first round. Both have pretty serious KO power though so either one could score that first big punch.

This one is easy. Eddie Sanchez, UD. I had Wain to win and I know little of him. Sanchez is a warrior with an all-around better game and the record shows.

Wain is a butterball of garbage.

I'm hoping Hardonk improved his takedown defense. He's the Luke Cummo of the heavyweights.

Sanchez 2nd round submissions. His hold his own on the feet until he takes it to the ground and submits him.

Im going with Sanchez, but im not too comfortable because of how fast Hardonk finished Robinson compared to Sanchez
