Can't wait to see Sell get ko'd again!! If he loses the UFC should get rid of him. Being buds with Serra has gotten him a long way

I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

Two guys in desperate need for a win make for a hell of a fight. I like both of these guys, and have to say i am Leaning toward Sell. As long as the cut to 170 doesn't hurt him. Stand up they are very close. I would have to say the ground game is up in the air. Most likely it is going to be a sluggfest. Drago wins via TKO late 2nd

EDIT: WAR DRAGO!!!

I hope Sell wins, so the drop Burkman, then Sell loses his next fight, so they drop him to, its a win-win situation,should be a good fight though.

i think sell has better techinical striking and more power but a much weaker jaw ... and burkman has the better wrestling by far ... but the worse jui jit sui ... im going burkman ud ... but i want both guys in the Ufc i think if they should have gave sell a easier fight so he could have stayed in the ufc

i think the loser of the fight is gonna be gone from the ufc, neither guy has great cardio, so that could be a problem for both fighters, I expect fireworks in the first round i think were gonna see a huge slugfest but burkman puts everything into every punch so he tends to gas, after the first round both fighters will prolly be very tired and neither will have the energy to finish the fight i think drago wins by decison, but i think he should definetely try to get the fight to the ground.
