Well, Duffee earned his first loss his last time out. Looks like it Madsen's turn this time out.

Yeah I dont know if Madsen can take Duffee down so easily, so prolly be a stand up/clinch fight.

Madsen's dealt pretty well with aggressive fighters during his UFC run, although Duffee is better than anybody else he's been matched up against thus far.

If he can keep at a decent distance, he can counter himself to a very boring decision, but I think Duffee will be able to find an opening to exploit eventually.

I dont c madsen being able 2 shoot and take duffe down if duffe keeps this fight standing it might b a short night 4 madsen. Duffe has some very quick and heavy hands 4 his size. although duffes last fight didnt work out so well 4 him i just think its a bad matchup 4 madsen.

I'd have to go with a Madsen decision, Duffee train was officially de-railed in his last fight IMO. Madsen would be dumb to stand with Duffee, I see him grinding out another decision.

Madsen wont be able to get the takedown, so he has to win this fight counterpunching and hope Duffee makes the same mistake as last time.

Easy win for duffee.

If Madsen came out with better wrestling I think he would win hands down for the upset. The test for Duffee.

This is more of a test to see if Duffee is the real deal than if Madsen is going anywhere in the UFC....I hope Duffee pulls off a finish here.

Nice observation. I don't think Madsen will do well in this fight though. I mean yes Duffee was exploited a little bit in his last fight, but a fighters chin (and fighters correct me if I'm wrong) doesn't hold up as well when he is exhausted. Duffee was gassed in the Russow fight by the time the second round was halfway over I thought he was going to fall out. Now much like Joe said during the fight Russow has one of the better chins we've seen since Cabbage. I haven't seen that many Madsen fights, but I feel like the majority of mankind cannot take the kind of shots that Duffee laid on Russow in that fight....Tim Hague certainly couldn't, and in reality neither could any of the other 5 guys he had fought previously. Madsen bores me to death, but I appreciate his wrestling skill and he seems like a nice guy so I hope he developes some stand up and sticks around for a while, but I see Duffee putting him to sleep in this fight.
