Oh wow. That's a big step up compared to Justin Edwards. This is a great fight.

Nice to see Santiago made it over from SF even though his September fight got cancelled. Tougher to pick, big step up for the young kid in Gunnar. Both guys have great grappling, might just take Gunnar seeing as Jorge has struggled to find success in the UFC albeit against tough competition.

I hope they don't push Gunnar too fast. I remember years ago hearing he is gunna be the guy to take out GSP.

Interesting fight. I just worry if Jorge losses then people will blame Jorge's lack of success in the UFC instead of it being Gunnar just looking incredible as fu*k
