Win or lose, UFC lightweight Rich Clementi (32-13-1 MMA, 5-4 UFC) just wants to fight.

Clementi is still sour over his October 2008 loss to Gray Maynard at UFC 90, and "No Love" refuses to have another disappointing performance when he faces Brazilian submission ace Gleison Tibau (15-6 MMA, 3-3 UFC) at "UFC Fight Night 17: Lauzon vs. Stephens" on Saturday in Tampa, Fla.

"I will really, really, really be upset if I'm not really, really busted up or I'm going out of there with my hand up," Clementi recently told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). "It better be one or the other."

I think Clementi's gameplan will be superior, Gleison had mount on Joe and went for something amateur and got submitted. Wouldnt be surprised if he holds Rich down for 3 rounds but Rich is a bigger LW as well, I see it going 3 rounds with Clementi getting the nod.

Got caught my something amateur? He got caught in a guiletine choke as he went in for a takedown. Stevenson has got the best guiletine in the game. Tibau should be able to over power Clementi and beat him up on the feet. I say Tibau wins this fight in a decision 30-27.

i'm also picking Clementi but Rich is in no way a bigger LW. Gleison is absolutely HUGE for 155. if i didn't know who he was and just saw his picture i'd guess he fought at 185. i have no clue how he makes LW.

No I said "went for something amatuer" when he had the mount I never said it happened right away after that mistake.

Just a misread on your part

What I was saying is Clementi is a big LW, not bigger than Tibau.

I'm going out a limb and going with Rich by KO end of the 1st beginning of the 2nd and damn this 2 hour broadcast with 6 undercard fights, good luck finding all of these on the net, ufc should always be a 3 hour broadcast, bump pellegrino and emerson to the main card.

I'm going with Clementi, and have an avatar bet on it.

If I lose, I will have No Love for Clementi, and never bet on him again.haha

Ps I wanna see the Rosholt vs Miller fight the most out of the undercard matches.....but any of them would be cool!

No Love is my boy. I hope there are some quick finishes so we get to see this fight. As long as Gleison Tibau brings it
