    I predict Raquel "the pez dispenser" Pennington" will set up Jessamyn Duke for submission by a well-executed gut wrench.

    Thanks. CELS too.

    I really like both of these fighters. It ought to be a close fight. This was almost Duke's first professional match at Invicta 1 if I remember correctly but it fell thru. There was other talk of them fighting for Invicta as well but events took them both on different routes.

    Yeah man, memory is kinda hazy, but I believe that fight was delayed when Pennington's nose was broken in training camp shortly before fight night. Which means these two are far more prepared and have been training intensely to fight each other than other contestants. Total bummer in the "Official WMMA Discussions" thread that day, but now it's finally happening! Can't wait!!! :D

    I know what you mean. That injury bug sucks; I hate seeing it hit fighters.

    I'll keep my fingers crossed that it does not impact the rest of the TUF season or the up coming Invicta 7 in December. Invicta 6 had a stupid number of injuries right up to the last minute with Brents' bizarre injury.

    would definitely hit that, but if I accidentally thought about Joe Lauzon I'd probably have to pull out.

    I've seen countless cast members respond to fans saying they've seen nothing yet when referring to "awesome fights" and now moreso now that this fight's been announced

    Should be a good fight.

    I think Duke takes this... They've been hyping the shit out of her.

    So who was in that picture with Dana again? Was it Raquel or Jessamyn?

    Don't jinx it man. Let's not forget Shayna and Roxy got massive screen time before their upset.

    The show's editor does a good job at keeping people guessing this time, and for that I'm glad.

    Prediction: Duke and Pennington have the fight of the season, which is why Dana took them to the Mayweather fight. He probably knew it was the best fight so he took them there without the fan vote. I also think that Rakoczy gets the only KO of the season, so she won KO of season by default, which is why she was at the fight.

    I think Duke wins and fights Rakoczy in the finale or semis. In Jessamyn's first blog, she stated that her coach (Scott Elliott) told her that Rakoczy would be a tough challenger in the house. I think this was foreshadowing because I dunno why else she would put that in the blog. I am a big Duke fan and former training partner and I would love to see her win the whole thing.

    Also, Shayna and Jessamyn are good friends, so knowing how emotional Shayna is, she would not say "man what a fight!" if Jess lost. It would have killed her emotionally, worse than when Roxanne lost.

    I thought Jessamyn was the favorite with her range and all. However from what I am hearing Raquel is apparently very stiff competition.

    I might have to go with raquel because of the internet buzz.

    It sucks that this season isn't live. Would be a lot of fun if we could bet on each fight this time around.
