UFC.com is reporting that Wilson Gouveia (9-4) will fight Jason Lambert (23-6) at UFC 80: “Rapid Fire,” setting up a light heavyweight showdown that was supposed to happen at UFC 76: “Knockout” back in September.

We'll find out if Lambert got lucky when he KO Babalu.
Both fighters are good on the ground but Gouveia is probably more skilled.
For some reason im still not sold on Lambert I think Gouveia is more technical and well rounded and will get the victory.

i think lambert is going to pound him out on this one. but he has to remember to check those leg kicks.

Everybody is entitled to their opinion. I'm here on this website to post what I think about MMA not argue with you and get told how dumb you think I am lol.
If you don't like what I have to say then don't read it man.
All you said was their highly underrated, which is pretty obvious but I didn't say it was dumb, it's how you feel dude.

lambert beat an unfocused and probably the worst looking babalu ever.
im not impressed with him at all, and the fact he got KTFO by rashad makes it worse.
so i'm picking gouveia by sub 2R

Easy there bud, it is just his opinion and I don't see how it was a "dumb" response.

Big fan of Gouveia, like the matchup...should be one of the more evenly matched fights of the night. Looking forward to those nastly leg kicks again.

I'm a fan of both guys, and really wish both would move to 185, but I think Wilson is just a better all around fighter. It's possible Lambert could overpower if he gets on top, if his sub defense is up to par, but I doubt it as i don't think he would be able to pull off more than one round that way. I'll go with Gouvea by TKO in the 3rd when his leg kicks have wore Lambert down.

Dude

How could either of them make 185???????

Ok Lambert seems to carry alot of fat that he could lose but he is still BIG and Gouveia seems like a big LHW to me, could he rreally cut 20lbs?

These 2 are the dark horses of the LHW division imo, Gouveia in paricular has sick BJJ and great striking, he lost to Jardine cos of cardio but think that will have improved, im very sure in Gouveia in this fight
