Rousimar is just too good for Pierce imo. If he makes the weight he wins in the first via kneebar. If he struggles with the cut then he'll win in the 2nd ;)

Pierce has alot of shit to say, but he has YET to beat a top opponent and plus Seth made him look like shit!..i woulda took Alves over Pierce if it happened..and i'll take Palhares in this one too..Pierce isnt that great of a wrestler and Palahares has very good TD attempts..



Lol ! Pierce has been in some epic fights lately !!! The basczynski fight was awesome and the comeback against Aaron Simpson was all heart. Sure he has yet to fight a "top opponent" but the guy sure does know how to win.

Pierce has never been finished in a professional fight and I dont see Palhares being the first guy to do it.

Pierce will take this fight easily I know your new to the PG but if you want to AV Bet on that fight send it my way.

Pierce via R2 KO/TKO

Totally agree sparky, even if it is in brazil... Pierce is just too solid, also the unknown of palhares moving down could work even more in favour of pierce.

i dont actually know how Avbets work lol. I feel Toquinho is about to pull a Maia, and use his incredible strength and BJJ skills to put WW on notice. No disrespect to Pierce, but I havent seen anything from him that tells me he isnt just a warm up for Palhares.

Since joining with the UFC Pierce has only lost to Fitch, Koscheck and Hendricks. That's nothing to be ashamed of. All 3 of fighters that Pierce lost to where highly ranked at the time. Pierce, IMO, is very underrated. I'm thinking if Pierce wins he should get another fight with a higher ranking, at least someone in the top 10. I expect Palhares to get pounded out while trying to go for a submission attempt.

and he arguably won two of those (imo just the Hendricks fight). The only guy Paul Harris has beaten with a competent wrestling game is Dan Miller.
