Both are undefeated, though

Hathaway is probably the better fighter. I believe that he was slated to be on TUF 9, but they offered him a contract instead.

Hathaway is the more-rounded fighter, and Egan likes to stand.

Don't know much about either, but Hathaway appears to be the better fighter, atleast on paper. I'm taking him by a 2nd rd tko.

I don't know and I'd say I don't care, but it's worth points. I'm picking Hathaway as he seems to be the more well rounded righter.

Hathaway because he has 3 times the fights of Egan.

i'm a bit nicer than grappler and Jackelope so i'll say this: since Egan is already an underdog: Hathaway is gonna be brought in to be built up as another British star. he completely outclasses Egan in this fight and it shouldn't even be close.

I won't comment too much on the fight as after all this is a competition, but this fight is also a pretty easy one to figure out, so I don't mind giving you some tools to figure out the fight for yourself. I noticed a couple of Tom Egan's fights have made it on the net so here are two of the three.

Thomas Egan vs Richard Taylor

Thomas Egan vs Arturas Pranckevicius
