If Fitch gets to agressive Gono could pull something out of his ass.

I really thought it would be Dan Hardy, so I'm a little surprised.

Akihiro can always surprise you. He runs hot and cold. One moment he looks elite, the next he looks like he's coasting. I don't think it's going to be very competitive but Fitch will have trouble finishing Gono.

This is the type of fight Fitch needs to get right back in the swing of things.

I fear this may be the last we see of Gono in the UFC, Fitch is going to make him look like a floormat.

I think that this could be a war...or a stalemate. We all know that Fitch likes to TRY ground and pound, and we all know that Gono likes to be on the defense for most of a fight.

Both guys are veterans, and both are crafty. This could be a very interesting fight.

they are both veterans but Fitch is a much better fighter. thats like saying if Wanderlei and Sean Salmon were going to fight it could possibly be a war because they're both veterans. Fitch Round 2 TKO via GnP

EDIT: before i get flamed, i am fully aware Gono is a much better fighter than Sean Salmon, just using an extreme example haha.

and on a side note GO BUCKEYES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It'll be the Happiest part of the fight for me too, if it goes like we all think its going to. Sucks for me cause i really like Gono and all he brings to the table. The guy is a showman and has personality. I hope he doesn't cut if he loses.
