Oh hell to the yes! Great fight. Story is as tough as any fighter, amazing chin, good wrestling and boxing... Gunni is definitely going to have to use his ground wizardry in this one. BJJ was invented for guys like Story who can't be KO'ed.

Zach Cummings' wrestling style gave Nelson some problems in their fight which could mean good things for Story. Gunnar has the better submission strategy but this is definitely a winnable fight for Story.

Sweet fight. I was still kind of hoping they would do Nelson/LaFlare but this will definitely do. Not a bad headliner for a FightPass card too, will definitely be watching this one live.
I've always been a big Story fan but he's been way too inconsistent me for to pick him here, especially against a great grappler like Nelson.

I think Gunnar still subs him.

Story will have to use his wrestling to win this one but I really see Gunnar pulling out the win via submission. Main event, it's not going 5 rounds. Gunnar has White Walker killer instincts.
