chonan takes it by decision, blackburn has punching power but chonan is better in every other area.

Yup, my mistake he is at 170. I rescind my previous theory.

I'm starting to wonder if the UFC is trying to build Chonan up to a rematch with Silva. I just get that impression by his recent matchups.

Once this hits the ground this should be Chonan's game.



isn't chonan fighting at 170?

I dont think so because Chonan is fighting at 170 now.

Chonan will beat Blackburn though by unanimous decision in my opinion. Shouldnt be that tough of a win for him he's just a much better mma fighter period.

Chonnan is 100x the fighter that blackburn is, I thik chonnan takes this one easily, but you never know what coud happen, lackburn does havenice hands, could make for an upset.

It's hard for me to pick a winner in this one, but after seeing most of both of their recent fights, I'm gonna go with "Bad" Brad Blackburn, he has KO power and can end a fight anytime(like when he KO'ed Delson Heleno in the 3rd after being dominated for 2 rounds). Chonan hasn't really impressed me in his UFC fights, therefore my prediction is Brad Blackburn by KO/TKO in round three.
