Don't know much about Lim. If Saffediene is the same guy he was, he is going to be hard to beat.

I'd really love it if Lim pulled it off. I remember years ago seeing him fight and thinking he had some solid skills He's looked good in the UFC so far, not over anyone of note mind you, so I'm interested to see how he does against this step up in competition.

I do prefer Saffiedine but I'm not really a big fan of either guy, I wouldn't mind if Lim won. I was just more critical of Lim because he seems to have many flaws to pick at.

Not bad. Like others said, not very technical, but that's okay. It was a pretty good observation of both fighters' styles and seems like a fair prediction of how the fight will go.

I dont know if Lim fights "sloppy" or reckless on purpose. Krausse had the same mindset going into the fight thinking he can pick apart Lim. I was thinking the same too as pascal is the technically more sound fighter. However when they were trading, i saw that lim would eat some but be able to also tag krausse.

Tarec seems more clean and technical but lim will probably try to stand in the middle and try to lure him into a brawl. And i would favor lim early in round 1 and 2. Havent seen him fight for long so i dunno.

Fair and pretty accurate assessment.

But what I think will happen is Lim's imposing size and style will come into play here; he will move forward deliberately and cause Tarec to brawl with him as well, whether he wants to or not, and consequently he will fall victim to Lim's size/power.

It could very well happen, Lim is a big, strong guy.

However, I think Saffiedine will be very weary of getting cornered, especially by Lim and because of this will take extra precaution. Mainly by lots of circling and active low kicks.
