Dan Barrera by 3rd round TKO. Hopefully he won't be so tenative now the big pressure is off. I think he could really take it to Ben if he just lets it go!

This all comes down to if Berrara has learned sub defense to me.On the show when he dropped Ben , he would have pounced on him while he was hurt if he didn't fear the sub IMO. Instead he seemed unsure what to do, even though his team was yelling for him to let him up, while he was still hurt. Ben has a big reach advantage, and If he wasn't hurt too badly, I think he would have had the advantage on the feet. Dan landed only a couple of big shots, and while I respect that, I hope he has learned sub defense, so he can use his superior wrestling in this case.

ben by sub, im going by what i have seen, if barrera improved he could win but ben could have gotten better as well. overall i think ben is the more talented fighter and gets a sub rd 2.

I was so disappointed in Dan. Just by his look I thought he was one of the best on the show. Bu if he didn't run away there's no way he wouldn't have been knocked out. I think it will be the same war in the 1st with both going down by Ben will finish him in the 2nd.
