Who the hell is winning this one. I see this fight going many ways. Both have fought great compitition and have had their share of losses and wins against first rate fighters. Career wise Rizzo has more big wins but recently Monson has been having more success. But for as long as the Rock Rizzo has been going around, he still in the prime of his career. This is a very fascinating fight, it can go so many ways. Shed some light, bright jam true.

Just gonna go with monson since he's faced better fighters in the last few years. Also figure some MMAth into this... if Rizzo's last win (Eilers) fought Monson's last win (Fujita) it'd be murder.

Still could go either way though, Rizzo is a crafty dude.

This is an interesting match up

I see Rizzo beating Jeff on the feet and Jeff winning on the ground so I say Jeff wins a UD

Monson will probably win because Rizzo isn't the same fighter anymore. BUt if Rizzo shows his true self and brings his sick takedown defence, he'll beat Monson.

I got Rizzo... He'll wait for Jeff to come shooting in, and then punish him... and then repeat

WAR PEDRO

I'll take the guy who's always walking forward (Monson) over the guy who's always backing up (Rizzo).

Rizzo's a great counter puncher... If Monson wants to walk into it, he's walking into Pedro's gameplan, IMO

This could go down as the most boring fight of all time. Sorry, but Pedro is mostly a counter fighter and Monson is a wrestler. It will probably go something like this.

Shot, sprawl, recover, leg kick for about two rounds. Then, shot, takedown, pray and lay. I'll take Monson.

Sylvia was able to beat Monson so the whole walking forward and backing up thing doesnt really work.

I will take Rizzo for sure...I think his striking can be deadly and I have confidence in him that he can do enough with his Ju Jitsu to at least neutralize the ground game if not catch a submission.

So I think Rizzo...just a matter of (T)KO...Sub...or Decision
