To me, this may not be the best fight, but it could be the most evenly matched. Cummo's good on the ground, Haynes throws wild ko punches...I have no clue who to pick in this fight. What are everyone else's thought on this one?

I got Luke on this one he is more skilled than Haynes. Haynes just kinda swings and hopes he connects. I don't see Luke finishing Haynes tho, he has a heart of a lion.

Well I knew Haynes was wild, but Cummo doesn't seem real agressive.

The suprise to me is going to be How Haynes looks after cutting so much weight. He has potential to be a decent contender at 170, if he's not drained from cutting the weight. He has got a pretty good stand up, and he can take a beating. Rory Singer and Bisping both gave him a pretty good ass-kicking. I just can't see him losing to Cummo. IMO Haynes 2nd TKO

I keep hearing this. Since when does Haynes throw wild KO punches. I attribute this line of thought directly to TUF influence. The whole time he was on the show all he did was talk about his heavy hands. "Bring the Pain" Haynes is 7-7 with 7 submission victories and it's pretty much all rear naked chokes and guillotine chokes.

I think these two are the definition of "B" level fighters but I think Cummo has decent stand-up and good ground skills. Plus, I don't think Haynes conditioning is that great so I'm giving it to Cummo with a late 2nd or 3rd round Sub.

This is a hard fight to call, I think Cummo is the better fighter, but Im picking Haynes by KO. I just think he is gonna land a bomb.

B level fighters? Forrest Griffin, Andrei Arlovski, Keith Jardine, guys like that are B level fighters. Try C or even D level fighters...

I like Andrei Arlovski, the only reason I put him as a B level fighter is because, in my opinion, he hasnt beat any A level fighters

Good point. All I saw him do was flurry punching then he locks in some ghetto sub. The closest he came to a KO was when Tait fell in hopes to fool Josh and make him jump in his guard, otherwise he's all heart. Luke by sub.

Luke reminds me alot of Kendall Grove. Long, lanky body that makes it hard for opponents to strike or sub. He is good on his feet and Gumby on the ground, he can manuver with the best when it comes to getting position.

I take Luke by 2nd round sub

Cummo is living proof that you can't judge a book by it's cover. Who the hell would have ever thought this guy was an ultimate fighter?
