I think this match up is more exciting than the other both mendes had rumored about with the guy that was like 10-2.

These are both guys that i had picked to have a pretty good future in the UFC. I didnt pick Mendes to win his last fight but i definately expected Gusmao to dominate.
This match is a toss up to me. I still hope that the guy who wins does well in the future.
