Peopl have been questioning the validity to this being on the main card, I hope not anymore. CB beat Massenzio in the finals in 2004, then when CB transfered to ASU Massenzio won it. Massenzio never got his revenge.

i'm definitely picking Massenzio especially considering he has the underdog bonus. regardless of what happened with them in college this fight should not be on the main card over Okami Vs. Lister considering the winner of that will either fight Maia or be considered the #1 contender.

i see this fight going somewhat like the jessie taylor fight....when you put two high caliber wrestlers together, its who has the better skills outside of wrestling that wins (most of the time)....cb has better striking, and better submission grappling.....massenzio looks good and has potential, but doesnt have much tools outside of his wrestling, yet.....plus cb comes from a great camp and most likely will have the better gameplan

CB kinda suffers from the same rep as Bisping, people dont like him, so they discredit his skills. All he lacks is a decent gas tank, hopefully hes worked alot on his cardio, then i see him becoming a force in the MW division in a few years time. Hopefully he can string together some wins and get another pop at Amir, i still think hes the better fighter of the two and could make short work of Amir if he comes in with his head screwed on.

Another interesting note on this fight: Massenzio is gonna sub CB in the first rd.

I'm not speaking out of dislike for CB at all, I just think Massenzio has a good chance of catching him in a sub unless he's improved his sub defense dramatically since the amir fight.

i'll be there live but if there is a upset of the night this fight has it written all over it
bad blood match might be reason why it is on main card

I think that CB will outwrestle him and grind out a decision.

The thing about Cb's gas tank is.....its actually pretty decent it was anyway in his fight against Hartman. On TUF it seems alot of guys gas out but thats because or the type of training and ect. Its a horrible judgment of a fighters cardio.

I honestly don't know who to give the edge to in this fight and im a huge Dollaway fan. I think the fact that CB didn't make it to face Mike isn't anything to read into because its all about match ups. Team mate of mine in wrestling lost in the regional finals but won state because of the match up he had against the regoinal fighter.

CB won freshman year I believe it was over Massenzio. The next year CB lost in an upset in the semis, and Massenzio won the title by beating the guy who beat CB

The next season CB tranfered
