    I'm favoring Pettis but RDA is a great fighter. I believe that RDA is a tougher test than Melendez.

    That headliner alone is enough to make me want to go.

    Pettis is the obvious favourite. I think RDA has a game chance though since he is every bit as well rounded. Mainly, Pettis has the advantage on the feet. Who knows who has the sharper ground game.

    It should be a great fight for at least the first 2-3 rounds.

    If Rampage does indeed make his return on the card, Rampage vs. Shogun as the co-main event would be really cool.

    People's computers are slower in Brazil. The Brazilian fanboys and pettis haters will show up soon.

    Pettis has this, even though RDA looks great. Pettis, when healthy, is just a monster.

    Idk, I've underestimated RDA time and time again.

    I think he can give Pettis a good fight and could be the first fighter in a while to take Pettis deep into a fight.

    I favor the champ nonetheless. Pettis' adjustments and finishing ability is top notch.

    very close fight. RDA is much more tougher, more powerful and well rounded than anyone pettis has fought. RDA imo is a nightmare matchup for pettis - he doesnt get hurt, has big power, great grappling/striking/cardio. he's like barao 2.0

    would be very impressed if pettis beats him but im sayin RDA

    The poll is gonna be like 99-1 for Pettis (I voted him too) but I actually think RDA has a pretty good shot at taking this. Might throw some money on him depending on the odds and excited for the fight.
