“Toquinho,” which means “tree stump” in Portuguese.

I like the match-up, Sakara's wrestling is doo doo, but his jits isnt nearly as bad.

Plus for the 45 seconds it stays on the feet sakara should look damn impressive.

hope to see another highlight reel sub for Palhares...

The kid's got skills and I think they fed him to Hendo too soon and he still fared very well IMO... Hope to see him steadily climb the MW rankings

I will gladly take my +2 in this fight!

Sakaras ground game is much better then people think, yeah he's not as good as Toq. But he won't be a sitting duck on the ground either.

Paul Harris has some bad standup...and Alessio has the speed and accuracy to put it to Toq. and overwhelm him I think.

I like Palhares in this and feel right now in the MW division of the UFC he would be Silva's toughest test. This boy could easily hand Maia his first UFC loss too.

If Hendo didn't finish him with the shots he landed I think Sakara is going to be in for a very VERY long night....well actually quite short cuz when it goes to the ground the fight will be over within 2 minutes of it being there.

Paul Harris could be double the width of Alessio. I dont see how he beats the tree stump.

Sakara may have a definitive edge on the feet, as soon as this fight hits the mat he is going to have a limb removed.

Have to spread the love bro, but I will gladly take the +2 as well. Jeremy Horn gave him trouble on the feet...Sakara will knock his block off. Horn almost connected with a desperate head kick. Granted Vedepo and Palhares aren't on the same level, I still think that if given the opportunity Alessio will connect with a very similar head kick as he did against Vedepo.

As for Palhares being Anderson's toughest test...
