Damn thats a pretty good fight! Terrible match up for Smith though since an even more devastating versatile striker gets to pick him apart.

I predict a KO. This is just the sort of fight Daley needs to keep him on track, with a brawler like Smith I can see it being a short fight.
Daley via much needed KO

I hope Smith is training purely in wrestling. This fight will look like Gatti/Mayweather if Smith tries to stand.

Smith via GnP TKO.

should be a real entertaining fight, Scott Smith can win if he chooses to wrestle but he wont so Daley will probably win by T.KO or Decision

Koscheck Vs Daley showed one thing, Daleys takedown defense isnt the weakest thing in his arsenal, and that was against Josh Koscheck, i predict a very timid Scott Smith getting finished

Never pick against a Russian, currently 32-11 (74%) in the UFC since 2012. #DoItForWatson

Looking forward to this fight. I don't see Smith trying to take it to the ground. He'll more than likely stand and trade and end up on the losing end of some brutal punches. Who knows though, I would love to see Daley connect with something big and go for the kill, only to have Smith land a hail mary ko for the win. Never get tired of come from behind finishes.

Billy Madison-

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in the playground is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

I have to say i am legitimatly pumped up to see this fight. I think Smith will definatly stand and bang....anything casn happen in MMA. That said....I think it goes a lot like the Kampman fight. Smith will hang tough for sure. But in the end get tagged with too many left hooks and go nighty night!
