I wasn't overly impressed by price. I also wasn't overly impressed with Roman's dramatic tirade, which i beleive was for the camera. So I am going to search for more of their fights online before making a decision.

You could just do 1 thread on all the fights instead of pushing other threads off the front page. Just a thought

i actually thought price looked alright against matt, his standup looked good but he was outclassed on the ground, i think matt will do that to a lot of guys before his career is over. i havent seen roman so i gotta go with what i have seen, and from what i have seen from dorian he isnt all that bad.

Yeah um Dorian actually has good stand up, the fight I would've liked to have seen was Dorian against Ben just because it would be a stand up war...I really don't care to see rematch after rematch...it gets tiring after awhile. I mean Barrera looked like at one point he was doing laps around the cage...what is up with that? seriously...

i think that dorian will lose because of his lack of a ground game/take down defense. i see the fight opening with dorian landing a couple of shots and then when roman has had enough, he will take him down and sub him. roman has some pretty solid JJ, i was able to watch one of his fights where he applied a nsty heel hook. i am not sure if he is a s good as matt on the ground but i still think that he is light years ahead of dorian in terms of JJ so i predict roman will just take him down and take advantage of the fact that dorian has a poor ground game.

now i am sure that people will realize that dorian has 6 submission wins and that will make a lot of people think he has good JJ, but i have seen a couple of his fights where he wins by triangle and it is nothing impressive. plus the fight with matt should show you that he just doesn't have high level JJ by any means. from what i have seen i firmly believe roman will sub dorian, but i wouldn't be that surpirsed if dorian KOs him or even subs him in a lucky submission because i really haven't seen too much of roman other than that one fight with the heel hook. even still i have to say roman by sub.

i agree with your post, but if its a combat sport featuring an armenian versus another fighter, i will never bet against the armenian.

those guys are beasts!

I would heartily agree with you if he was built thicker like Karo and Manny. Anyway , I will search for them both tomorrow.

Maybe this we'll help you hippysmacker...got it all off sherdog...

Roman

Wins(all by sub)
-Mike Penalber(3-5-0)
-Brad Mohler(2-4-1)Note one loss was too JZ by sub at HOOKnSHOOT-Live
-Bong Fedalizo(0-1-0)

Losses
-James Wilks(3-2-0) and it was his first pro fight and he won by sub

Dorian

Wins(6 by Sub, 1 by TKO)
-David Hampton(0-4-0)
-Kirk Birchum(0-5-0)
-Torrance Taylor(5-3-0) His one TKO
-Phillip Tomblin(7-3-0)
-Salazar Sanchez(0-2-0)
-Drew Longshore(0-3-0)
-Rick Emerick(0-1-0)

Losses
-Chris Liguori(7-5-0)
-Ricardo Martinez(3-4-0)

With that being said I think they are evenly matched. Both win by sub and have fought the same level competition. Yeah Dorian beat somebody who was 7-3 and 5-3 but his other wins are to crappy fighters. As for Roman NO way his little tough guy attitude fits his record. I think it was all talk.

This will be a close fight but with Dorian having sub wins and mostly a "Mauy Thai" guy.

'm picking Dorian, with the 2nd round TKO.
