So it looks like josh has finally healed up, and it has been officially announced that they will have the rematch on dec.19th. its about time! i've been waiting for this for like almost two years! with the way gill looked when he avenged his loss against Ishida, i think were in for a good one. Josh better hope that he is 100% because i know gill is and he's looking scary! im predicting Gill by fourth round TKO. WAR EL NINO!!!

Gilbert is a very aggressive, well rounded fighter but I see Josh taking this one either by hard fought UD or second round TKO. Gilbert has trouble finishing fights as well and some turn out to be very boring.

I'm still on the fence with this one. The only thing I'm sure of is that I cant wait to see this fight.

Gilbert has been known for his aggressive style in the past, but in his last two fights he has taken his time and been patient. he finish both of his last opponents, giving him 11 finishes out of his 16 wins. that doesn't seem like someone who has trouble finishing fights! and just for the record could you tell me which fights(other then his last thomson fight) has been boring. Because i can't remember one?

What happen to Davebled? I guess he couldn't find any of Gills supposed "boring fights" because on the real i can't remember one. That's why he was name one of MMAs most exciting fighters! The only fight that he could even argue about was Gills last fight with Thomson. Although it wasn't too boring, just a bit one sided. i mean i definitely don't think it was as boring as when Josh lost to Guida. Gill came out flat in his fight with Thomson, it was just one of his off nights. and even Gill at his worst, went five rounds and was still bring it in the fifth! Marks my words, it going to be a totally different fight this time! War El Nino!!
