Great fight. Both guys are underrated, dangerous, and well rounded. I'm pumped to see how this one plays out

Couldn't agree more with any of the above statements. I think Dillashaw may have a slight edge on the feel and when it comes to speed but if he falls back on his wrestling Raph just may sub him. With all the fights falling out I'm happy the UFC's making awesome fights like this and hope they hold up.

Huge fight for Dillashaw this is by far the biggest test of his young career. I hope he finds a way to win but my gut is telling me Assuncao takes the decision.
