i am well aware of aoki's sub's, but i just cant imagine him catching eddie or even getting him on the ground. i think eddie is gonna murder aoki in the standup, then aoki will try to pull guard or something and eddie will GnP him into oblivion.

I almost changed my pick to Alvarez after the weigh-ins but I decided against it since switching picks always burns my ass. Aoki is crazy with his grappling, though. Once he manages to get his hands on you he's like a spider with food in it's web.

He did it once before.

----------------------------------

I picked Eddie Tko.

I think and hope it will be a finish either way, Eddie tko or Aoki sub.
