That'll be a great fight. I think Roan's way too big and strong for De Souza, though. Look for him to take another Alves-esque beating.

Pretty good prelim fight, Roan is better than he seems, he nearly had Fitch with that anaconda! He will sub Tony who be suffering ring rust and is far past his best

I say Roan outwrestles and out positions DeSozua for a UD....I don't know if Roan can get the sub because even if Tony has ring rust he is still very good on the ground...just aks Noah Thomas...lol

i think tony should just give it up. stay a trainer. they are using him as a gate keeper. he is just fighting for a paycheck. do think you will see him fight again after this?

I am probably one of the few who thinks Tony Desouza will win

He's only 33 and his submissions skills have never been suspect. The only thing bad about desouza's game is when it comes to striking and avoiding strikes

I think Roan has very good submissions but if he wins i see it being by TKO even though he has never had one.
