I'm trying to remember back to 70, but he did a really good job, and he's still undefeated right? So is there any reason why not to pick Etim over Tibau? I'm open to all opinions, just it and the Hironaka/Alves fights are hard to predict.

I really liked what I saw from him... Decent standup... was able to take a beating... Pulled off a sub...

I took Terry in this one. Think he can take some punishment and get the sub from the bottom again. I also think Grice is more impressive than Tibau.

I saw that as well. I just don't know.. The Brazilians are on a charge lately.. I mean, I have Gouveia over Lambert, Sobral over Heath, Shogun over Machida, Silva over Franklin, Aurelio over Guida, and i'm going back and forth on Hironaka/Alves, just because I don't care for Alves anymore after the Steroids thing.. The only Brazilian I am not convinced will win, is Gonzaga..

i don't think that etim's gonna submit tibau. tibau's jiu jitsu is sick, he almost caught diaz in their fight. if he wins i think it will be by standing with him. i have tibau picked, he's more compact and strong enough to get the TD and can easilly go three rounds doing that.

Etim looked good UFC 70 gotta go with him..Alves has been training so hard , and think he will come out hungry in this fight. Etim via Sub and Alves via KO round 2

I agree with this statement. I think Etim is going to be in trouble right off the bat when he steps in the ring with Tibau. Etim will make it through the first round, but he will be quickly submitted in the 2nd round.

That's a horrible pick, I agree Etim will win, but not by sub.
