Drwal should have a decent height advantage here....but Palhares just forces the fight to the ground. Im thinking either Palhares by submission or Drwal by tko. They both have a win over lucio linhares.

I like Palhares' chances in this fight.

Pretty bad style matchup for Drwal, I'm not sure how good his ground game is...from what I've seen from him, he's primarily a striker.

I think Palhares takes a leg home w/ him in this one.

I'm quite the opposite. Palhares is lost on the feet, and Drwal is a pretty big middlweight. I think he should be able to keep it on the feet for long enough to knock Rousimar's block off.

Should be a great fight. I like both of these guys. Classic striker-grappler match up.

Yeah, I like this matchup, too. Should be a fun finish however it ends.

Drwal has looked scary in his last few fights. Provided he can defend the takedown, it's his fight to lose imo.
