Really? I see the exact opposite. Miller has much better stand-up and at least a comparable ground game. I'll take Miller all day, and hope this means there will be some good odds.

Tibau will win, unless its a decision...he gets screwed on decisions.

He beat Tyson griffen and Guillard IMO.

Awesome matchup. Miller is more technical on his feet, but Gleison showed he has power. How can he not, he looks like a lhw at lw imo. On the ground it will be a war, cause both guys are good their.
I pick Gleison to win by ud or sd.

Tibau is too big. Look at the Maynard/Miller fight.

Tibau is too big. Look at the Maynard/Miller fight.

Tibau isn't the wrestler that Maynard is. Not even close. Miller by top control decision.

There is no way he beat Tyson Griffin.

He may not be the wrestler that Maynard is, but he does have good wrestling and extremely good takedowns.

Hard fight to pick.

Miller should win this but Tibau can be a tricky dude. I say more than likely Miller is going to win this one by decision with a small chance for a late sub. I do think Tibau has a microscopic chance of a decision victory but that will depend on how aggressive Miller is or is not...and on how aggressive Gleison is or is not...and what kind of fight it turns into. Miller has only been beaten by Edgar and Maynard...I don't think Gleison will be added to that list. I can't see how he can win this fight.

I agree, Gleison' s double legs have defined any fight in which he's decided to use them recently. It should be a tough demanding battle for position all night long.

Props. Griffin definitely has received favorable decisions, but he won the fight against Tibau no doubt.

Miller is not the same striker he was against Maynard. He got outclassed on the feet that night, but since he has shown much better striking. I hope the odds are close on this one because I always make off like a bandit with Miller.
