Should be a fun fight. I have Mitrione by late TKO or decision.

Good fight for main card
Meathead by ko
After this he needs a bump up the ladder
And face a kongo, or schaub or even winner of mir/nelson

I might take Morecraft because I think he will be the better wrestler and Meathead seems to get hit and not move his head well, but we'll see.

Upset alert is on full blast. I like meathead but Morecraft is a strong wrestler and really seems to be the real deal.

I think Morecraft's actually got a pretty good shot. I'll take him by round 2 ko.

What fight was it where Meathead was taking shot against the fence and just getting cracked and firing back? Beltran fight? Because I think if Morecraft hits him good, Meathead will prolly fall from one of those.

im 0-3 when betting against Mitrione (last 3 fights). i think i should continue betting against him until he vs Velasquez square off for the HW title, both undefeated

I like this fight,though either way you cut it,regardless win or lose I think Meathead gains more from this than morecraft. I know it sounds a bit strange but hear me out.

If meathead wins it just propells him to the next level. It certainly would Morecraft as well but Mitrione is more well known due to his involvement in TUF.
Now if he loses and capatilizes on the loss he will realize it is important to continually improve his overall game and make the adjustments where nessacerary. I think this is a realization he will come to sooner or later and I actually believe the sooner the better because he's got a lot of potential.

I'm in no way,shape,or form attempting to discredit Morecraft,though I wish his name where Lovecraft, i'm just a big fan of meathead.
