I don't like underestimating someone like Almeida but I think this is Pyle's fight to lose. Almeida has the jui-jitsu but I think Pyle will just be too powerful for him. I can see Pyle managing a TKO with ground and pound sometime in the second round.

I agree. Pyle will probably be the underdog betting, but he's one of the most underrated fighters in the UFC. Pyle UD

I think Ricardo will be bigger and control Pyle for UD.

But started to become a semi-fan of Pyle after the hathaway win but not on the bandwagon yet.

Good fight
Bjj will cancel each other out
Pyle has better striking
Doubt whole fight will bestanding
If pyle fights same way like he did against hathaway
He should win by ud
Pyle will be underdog but a good wager bet

I see Pyle having the advantage standing, I would agree that bjj will cancel out, but I think Ricardo will hold Pyle down for the victory.

Ummmm since when is Mike Pyle's BJJ on the same level? His submission offense is good, but his defense isn't that great. I think Ricardo will dominate him and end up choking him out.

Dude can't defend a rear naked choke to save his life.
