I joes chances and him being an underdog is proabably a good thing. The betting line should be pretty good as well. Hermes can't stop a shot and Joes take down defense isn't great so I think who ever gets the first takedown is gonna be in pretty good shape. Franca's jits is unreal but with that said I don't see how anyone can say Franca wins this fight by submission Easily...thats just plain not the case.

As is always the case with comments towards J-Lau like this I always say "Jens Pulver". I'm sticking with J-Lau.
I really do think it will be a relativly easy win for Hermes, Jens losing to Lauzon isnt such a big upset to me, sure it was at the time because Joe was an unknown but when I thought about it then and now Jens is pretty one dimentional with a weak jaw and Hermes is anything from one dimentional and has a chin of granite.
I only give Lauzon an advantage in punching technique and wrestling which is where I'm getting the armbar prediction from and when Lauzon faces good competition like his other losses he isnt able to stop them or overcome being stopped. He had Florian in a bad spot or two and didnt capitalize, that to me is a lack of fighting instincts.
Do I think Lauzon can win? yes.. and I'll be sure sterilize my posts so ppl dont get butthurt, my bad.
