yeah looks like Tomasz is dropping to middleweight. it'll be interesting to see how he handles the cut. regardless i think Drew will smash him.

drwal is the more talented all around fighter, but nobody has heavier hands in the mw division than mcfedries, bad match up for tomasz.

No one has heavier hands in the MW division??

Have you seen Dan Henderson hit anyone lately?

Henderson has that rock solid right, but every one of Drew's punches are for keeps, he lands and it probably hurts more than almost anyone else in the division.

Cool matchup. Interested in seeing how TD takes the weightcut, a little added speed could help hit out in this one.

Drew hits hard as ****, but doesn't like getting hit much...and seems to not be prepared mentaly for some fights.

I think TD will catch him off guard with a quick takedown and pound him out from side control.

Drwal rnd 1 TKO

I'm a huge fan of Drwal, but i'm worried about the weight cut. I'm not sure he'll have the power that he had at LHW. At any rate, I think he'll beat Drew in an exciting 1 round fight.

War Drwal!!!

I got McFedries in this one. Either way somebody is going to get KTFO. Thats how Drew fights kill or be killed.

let's take into consideration Drew's recent camp switch when Pat Miletich told him to get the eff out. That's got to weigh heavy on him, he's been there since the beginning man!
I feel bad for the guy. Anyone know for sure where he's training now? MFS is a great place to start out, but I think fighters stagnate there and have to move on to get better. Pat is still fighting. How can someone devote themselves to training other fighters when they are training too? Doesn't make sense to me.

Drew is a good guy and great striker, but really needs to work on his ground game. He looked really uncomfortable when he hit the ground with Thales Leites. Plus he's been really hot/cold winning only 3 of his last 7 bouts. Hopefully his new camp gets him back on track and mentally solid so he can use that dynamite in his hands.

I didnt think Drwal looked that small @ LHW.

Its going to be a massacre for Drawl, Drew R1 tko.
