Who do you guys think will be in the finals this season? I got all the semifinal match-ups I wanted so I'm excited to see who will make the cut.

I think it'll go like this:

Semifinals
Nover def Roop
Efrain def Junie
Krystof def Vinny
Bader def Eliot

Finals
Krystof def Bader
Efrain def Nover


Thoughts?

I'm pretty sure that Krsyztof will lose to Vinny. He called him out earlier in the season but didn't even say that he wanted to fight him in the interviews. Bader should be able to handle Marshall pretty easily, but I see him losing to Vinny in the finals.

Efrain and Nover will probably be in the finals at LW, and I see Efrain winning that one.

That's what I have too. If Kryzsztof does not win I will see that as a major upset, similar to when Amir upset CB the first time last season.

I wont see it as an upset at all, Krystof has the weakest ground game out of the 4, and Vinny has the best BJJ out of the 4. All Krystof has is the striking and maybe wrestling, but Vinny will just pull guard if he cant get the takedown (as shown in the previews)....Krystof will be put in the defensive in the ground and he wont do much and sooner or later Vinny will catch him IMO.

I think your leaving out Vinny. He'll make it farther in the UFC than anyone in the house.

Efain vs Nover (finals)
Bader vs Vinny (finals)

Winner LHW- Vinny
Winner LW- Nover

The LHW's could go either way, as the three guys I consider to be the best (Krystoff, Vinny, and Bader) are all deficient in some apect of the game. If you put them all together they would be an awesome well rounded fighter. It's kind of neat as this will be a battle of styles.

Krystoff- Good striker, mediocre wrestling, poor jiujitsu (don't let that slow armbar he pulled off fool you).

Bader- Good wrestler, mediocre striker, poor jiujitsu.

Vinny- Good jiujitsu, mediocre wrestling, poor striking.

At LHW I think Nover is the clear favorite. He seems to be very well rounded and Efrain's striking is really poor. I think Junie would actually be a better challenge for Nover, but I don't see it happening.

No Matter what happens, I like all of the lightweights except Roop, and I like all four of the LHW's, I think whether or not they win all of them need to be in the UFC for a few fights at least, this season has a good talent pool.

That said I think Efrain vs. Nover and Vinny vs. Bader are the finals.

what if Junie gets kicked off next episode? who do you think would move to the semis that already lost? Delgado, John P, or Nelson all have a good shot of getting invited to the semis by dana i think.

Winner at LHW: Bader
Winner at LW: Nover

:


I am pretty sure Nover will be in the finals as I have been saying since before the show started.
I am pretty sure Vinny will make it to the finals too,the guy is nuts yet super talented.

yeah thats why i didnt make a prediction. Nelson is the most talented of the three, dana really likes polakowski, but delgado lost to junie.. so like i said, arguments could be made for all three.

Good post. Here's my thoughts- I think Bader has good enough wrestling to take Kryzstof down and avoid subs while dishing out some GnP and keeping it off the feet.

I think against Vinny that Bader has good enough wrestling to dictate where the fight will go, and as a result of which he should be able to punish Vinny on the feet who is known to dislike getting hit.

So at LHW I see Bader as the pretty clear winner at this point. As long as he doesn't pull a Dolloway and stay on the ground against a guy who's likely to sub him. Then again, Amir was rumored to have pretty good standup, so I can't argue with CB taking Amir down
