What happen to Mike Ciesnolevicz ? It is still up on the picks list that Marshall is fighting Ciesnolevicz.

I still think Marshall will lose.

I thought Marshall was going to lose to Mike, given the replacement, he's almost guarenteed to lose, though I like Eliot better then Vinny for the record

According to Weekly's report, undisclosed injury. The new fight is not yet official as the bout agreements still must be signed. That should be done shortly.

If Vinny's stand up is still as bad as it was at the Finale I dont see how he wins this fight.

Marshall had decent Mui Thai. If he can Effectivly use the clinch and keep it standing Vinny is done. If Vinny gets it to the ground.......game over as well. I am not sure how to pick this one. Most likly Vinny sub 1st
