Theyre not really protecting their "Ultimate Fighters." Johnson and Wilks both look like theyre being tossed to the wolves

Sobotta a wolf? I think not. I actually think this is a gimme fight for Damarques from what I saw in peters last fight.

Johnson prolly runs through him.

This one is kind of tough to call.

Despite their records, I definately think Demarques is the better fighter of the two...but in his last couple fights, he seems to just walk into punches and get rocked..also doesn't have the best sub defense.


I will probably take Johnson by tko or decision....but I wouldn't be suprised if he picked up another L here

He was a huge disappointment at TUF9 Finale, but looked pretty good during the show.

Not too sure how good Sobotta is, so I guess we'll have to wait and see.
