I was looking at the comparison of the Playgrounds top 10 fighters against Sherdogs top 10 fighters, and there are a few fighters that the Playground has ranked, and Sherdog does not and vice versa. Who wins these matchups.
Rothwell vs Mir- I like Rothwell in this actually. He is a tough guy and could see him grind out a decision
Soko vs Thiago Silva- Tough fight, but I like Silva via submission
Cote vs Akiyama- Cote has shown improvement, but I think Akiyama catches him in a sub
Condit vs Penn- I know Penn is a LW, but he is ranked as a WW. Penn by TKO
Melendez vs Huerta- Another tough pick for me. I think the winner wins by decision
Stevenson vs Kawajiri- I like Stevenson in this fight. Probably tko, or decision
Josh Thomson vs Florian- Thomson's last performance was great. Barring a cut I like Thomson by decision.
Rothwell Via Late TKo stoppage, GnP
Sokoudjou uses his judo to nulify thiago's takedown game and land more than thiago can take. Sokoudjou Tko round 2
Akiyama has much better takedowns than Alemida, i see him being even on the feet and taking him down whenever Cote starts to gas late in the fight.
Submission round 3
Melendez by Unanimous decision, hes like Clay Guida x2 in most areas and Clay guida was giving Huerta a very very tough fight
Id say Kawajiri is a slight favorite, but a close match-up.
Josh THompson - Florian has yet to beat a ranked fighter, Josh just did, by a wide margin.
