Saunders is not overrated, he just came in a little flat footed against Swick. I don't think he has any of that fear against Fitch. It can be very difficult to take a taller fighter down, if he knows that is what you intend to do. I'm going to pick Saunders because, he looked like a middleweight in his last fight, I know I should know better, but I see a lot of little things in this match and I don't feel comfortable picking Fitch.

i'm a little disappointed since i was expecting to make quite a bit of money off of Ellenberger AND alves. now i can't do either haha. either way it provides an intriguing match up, as i am curious to see if Saunders continues to improve.



Yeah, me too. I'm pissed that they scrapped both fights because of a problem with one fighter.

Should've just left elleburger/saunders and tried to either find a new opponent for fitch or push his fight back to the next card.
