mike rio mentally broke hard on the show in his fight, cofer is tough and has good forward pressure....see it being a hard slog for rio if he doesn't get his precious top position.

Two solid wrestlers going at it, I kind of think Rio isn't that great all around and Cofer didn't look too bad against Lawrence. My money is on Cofer taking down Rio and riding out a decision or getting a late sub.
