I thought Sass would be getting someone higher up on the ladder. If Sass cant get this fight to the ground, Wiman should take this fairly easily

Wiman usually lands 3 takedowns a fight... I'm guessing he goes for 0 in this fight.

I'm done counting Sass out! Wiman isn't as good of a wrestler as Volkman and Sass has some good trips so I'm taking Sass but wonder sub whenever the hell he feels like!

Another good fight booked today. I like Sass to floss his standup until he taps Wiman however Wimans a tough test and this one should be fun.

I was kinda hoping for Varner v Sass but this is just fine to me. Wiman's a very well rounded guy who is pretty underrated.

I just can't really see Wiman getting tapped out by someone who he knows is aiming for it. The guy is too good with his BJJ IMO. I'd pick Wiman to beat up Aoki on the ground as well.

Kinda like Wiman here. He should be able to do some damage on the feet.

I would agree. But there have been countless fighters get tapped by bjj guys. However you did state wimans own bjj skills would be enough to keep him out of trouble
