It'll be like Mir trying to grapple with Pe De Pano.

Should be an easy win for Vinny

Seems like a match-up manufactured to give Vinny a pretty sure win. Perosh is good but no match for Vinny on the ground. Perosh also doesn't seem to have much striking while Vinny can at least hold his own.

This has the makings of a total slugfest between two heavy handed fighters.

I've slept next to a few after bar close and I wouldn't recommend sleeping on the hippo either.

You guys shouldn't right of perosh. Yes magahleas is a world champ bjj guy but perosh is a 3rd dan bjj black belt also. I pray for a ground battle. Hopefully they don't just stand.

Saw perosh 2 weeks ago at a bjj tournament in Sydney and from the looks of his face he has been doing some heavy sparring. Maybe perosh will look to keep it standing.... Very intruiging fight.
