One of the few times me and Wolfman have disagreed in a little while on a pick.. i got Stout by KO RD 1, might get to the third, longer it goes the more in favor of Clementi it will be... but i still think Stout will finish Rich with quick and crisp stand up. His sprawl is pretty good too, so i jsut don't see it getting to the mat.. ya never know thoough.
Yeah, this is a tough fight to call. I could see it going Stout's way no doubt. I agree that Stout's sprawl has improved greatly. I just have a good feeling that the fight will hit the mat a few times and when it does I think it will be all over for Stout. I highly doubt Stout wins by TKO though, I think his best chance is by UD. As Clementi is hard to put away via strikes. He has only one TKO loss and that was 7 years ago due to a cut. There is always a chance that Stout can catch him though, and as you said the longer it goes the better chance Rich has of winning the fight. So, I see a submission win for Clementi. When ever I pick against him he proves me wrong, so the time I do pick him he'll probably lose.
I really wanted to pick him against Melvin, but I obviously didn't. I hope he wins....when I do pick him.
