After being bumped from what would've been his UFC debut Saturday by Mirko Cro Cop, Todd Duffee is now expected to debut against Mike Russow at UFC 102. Russow would also be making his UFC debut.Article
I was looking forward to the Duffee line against Al Turk. That was going to be a money maker for sure.
Tough fight. Duffee seems like the striker with 4-0, 4 tkos trains with ATT.
Russow is 11-1 seems like a grappler with 8 sub wins. Big HW 6'2" 265. Sergei Kharitonov his only loss.
Think I'll take russow.
i had duffee winning against al turk but now i gotta go with mike
i'll be at the event live but i'll root for both men
Weird that the UFC decides to throw top prospects against each other in each's first fight within the Octagon. First they match Tuchscherer up against an always dangerous Gonzaga, and then they do this. Not the best way to build up what may be their weakest division.
Duffee will be the better fighter in the long run. I just don't know about now.
I see Russow taking this fight to the ground and submitting Duffee.
