i like mac but tommy is a tough matchup for anybody, i think mac's skill and experience will get him a close ud. he will control the standup and will do enough on the ground to win.

I personally like Tommy... For some reason, he just reminds me of a kinda Rich Franklin character. a guy who seamly came out of nowhere, and never had any fine tooning. An like franklin he brings his nobo amature wrestling into the octogon and uses it effectivily. And as we witnessed last night, that right hand is devestating. I'm just think he's gonna do what he did against George, and pull off a upset. At least thats what I'm hopin... lol.....

I think Mac is gonna be a little tentativein this fight, Tommy is a very tough guy,
i never expected him to KO George but wow that was a brutal KO, He is stronger than Mac and he has been in some tight subs and not tapped, he is a brut, I just dont see Mac winning this one, I mean Mac didn't look so great against Jon in the rematch, if it had stayed on the feet who knows if Mac wouldve won.

I'm not sure how Mac is going to approach this fight. Tommmy is a bad fight for him i think. A very strong guy, on the ground he not bad(american wresteling background) and has a very heavy right hand. This could spell out a loss for Danzig. I am pulling for Mac in this fight just for the time he has put in and his talent. He is a true warrior

Danzig by Unanimous Decision. No doubt. Tommy is awesome. I don't think Mac is gonna get a lot better than he is right now, but Tommy is not gonna catch Mac being stupid, and he is not going to rack up enough points. That said I thought Mac looked TOO tenative in his fight against John. He better not pull that against Tommy.

mac should beable to pull out a k.o or sub. I havnt seen episode 12 of tuf yet but im assuming by what people are saying tommy k.o'd goerge, which im not disapointed about but c'mon, the guy gets his first ko and all of a sudden hes got a "leathal right hand" ?. My worry for mac is that hes a 155'er, and going up and against a really stong 175'er could spell real trouble for him, but i believe hes skilled enought to come out with a win, or a hard enough fought loss to still get him a contract.

hell yeah... i saw one of Tommy's fights in the WEC against a JJ guy and he looked damn ugly and damn sloppy, that being said he did win the fight with his brute strength just like he said he would, once he slammed the guy to the ground he got back to his feet and hit him with a right while falling into his guard, and knocked him out... guys got power.. i wouldn't say hes got a lethal right hand yet.. but we all know that farm boy is tough as hell

First off, you need to pause before posting titles like that mate - Episode 12 hasn't screened in the UK yet...I've seen it however as I downloaded it. Just something to consider next time.

Danzig will win this. George was so stupid in his fight against Tommy. He took a nasty poke in the eye, and didn't take long enough to recover, as he clearly couldn't see properly, which blinded his left side, the side where Speer is dangerous on his feet, as he later found out.

lots of people going for Mac, but I see Tommy winning this one. If you look at the guys Mac beat on the show, he beat a quiter, and he beat up a guy twice (who only does MMA on the side). Sure Koloski showed a lot of heart and balls coming in there ( I was even rooting for him) but he wasn't at Mac's level.
When you look at Tommy though, it's weird cus all the fights he had in the show, I thought he was going to lose. Beat a very impressive War Machine (in my opinion), impressive Ben Saunders, and KO'd the guy everyone thought was the best on team Serra. I'm not doubting him again, that's for sure.

First of all I think Mac wins by triangle choke 2nd round. I think that Mac has much more tuned skills on his back, on top, on feet. The reason that Tommy escaped from those submissions on the show is because the people putting him in those subs didn't have the strength, nor the skill that Mac does.

I can't believe I'm picking the guy, I hate him.
