Who takes this and how?

I personally think it's only a matter of time before Cowboy gets a hold of Jamie Varner and takes his belt. I think he can win this fight against Razor Rob any way he chooses.

Cowboy, probably by round one Submission. IMO Razor Rob is either not that great of a striker or is a changed man since getting beat. Rob's last fight was basically a stare contest. I think Cowboy overwhelms Rob in the first round and pulls a Sub

This should be a great fight. I'm taking Razor in this one. I know Cerrone is a good striker with a great ground game but he might be a little overwhelmed by such a high profile televised fight. It happens. Razor has the experience and can't afford a loss to Cerrone.

I think Cerrone by a hard fought decision. Cerrone's star is just rising, while Razor has looked less than impressive lately.

one lousy fight against after coming off a hard fought ko loss doesnt mean razor rob has fallen off....alot of times fighters have to get theyre wheels back under them....he was running threw decent fighters before that fight.....cerrone doesnt have the experience of losing and that can hurt a fighter sometimes cuz they get over confident...hes getting pretty legit tho....im thinking that we will see an exciting fight that will us what cerrone really has on the chin level and strking level....razor rob we pretty much all know what hes got to offer, but dont forget that he was good td defense and sub defense...he scrambles well back to his feet and i think those aspects are underated for him...i do think his strking is overated tho, he knows what hes doing and packs a serious punch....which i still think will be the finishing touch in the second rd.

Based on the way Rob has fought recently, I think Cerrone with a first round sub.

But knowing what Rob is capable of and hasn't shown lately, I think Cerrone with a second round sub.

Razor Rob has been less than impressive lately. I'm going with momentum. Cowboy baby.

Razor Rob did a pretty good job avoiding takedowns from a D1 All American in Jamie Varner. I'm thinking Cowboy has some difficulty getting it to the ground and takes a beating on the feet. Should Cowboy get it down I see it ending quickly, though.

i like razor rob, cerrone is good but mccullough is a tough dude, i think his standup is superior and his ground game is good enough to pick up the win. 2nd round tko

I'm not sure about this but isn't Cerrone a more accomplished kickboxer than Razor? I see a few exchanges through the first and a slick sub by Cerrone at the end of round 1.

He's supposedly a better standup fighter than Razor by the books. Somehow I see Razor Rob having the hunger and fire inside him for this fight, though. His last opponent wasn't willing to engage and Razor Rob was looking to duke it out. Cerrone will oblige him in that department in my opinion, and I think Razor Rob has better KO power than Cerrone.

I really hope a lot more people have the same opinion as you.

The minute this fight was announced, I was extremely excited just because I knew a bunch of people would be picking Razor Rob.

I 100% see 'Cowboy' dominating this fight.

Keep picking Razor Rob everyone!

Oh, trust me... I am not entirely sold on either fighter winning at this point. I'll wait til the last minute to lock in my pick. This is one of those fights that could go either way, IMO. I just know that even though Razor Rob was getting dominated by Varner during their match up he still almost made a comeback toward the end of that fight.

I'll tell you this much, though- should Cerrone win the bout and face Varner I'd be willing to pop my av bet cherry on a bet for Varner in that one.

Cerrone by submission in the second. Razor Rob was champ when there was no good LW's in the WEC, but now there's some talent there and I don't think he'll be able to hang.
