    Seen people say theyre already counting the detroit superstar out, I dont know why anyone would do that not only did we see his great striking (at least imo) but has everyone forgot hes a D-3 All American at Olivet University? John Makdessi might have a rude awakening coming his way.. Ive got Daron either by 2nd or 3rd round TKO or a decision. DETROIT SUPERSTAR

    Makdessi has like 0 ground game, we seen that in the hallman fight. Also didnt Anthony Njokuani take him down? come on I see Daron moving the 3-0 and getting a top opponent. at least I hope DETOROIT SUPERSTAR FTW!!

    I like Cruickshank in this one. He went to the same high school as me.

    I guess Hughes has no ground game either.

    How is that even relevant? Makdessi is one dimensional..

    Makdessi lasted almost 3 mins... Hughes lost twice in a combined 37 seconds. So by your logic Hughes also has 0 ground game.

    was hughes in his prime? no, is makdessi? i dont think so, but when have you ever seen makdessi on top position or bottom (besides hallman fight). He always pressures and pushes the fight which will get him in trouble against someone as good as Cruickshank. hes got good stand up and better wrestling. youll see.

    I'll see what? I don't know what you are trying to show me. All I'm saying is you can't judge his ground game solely based off of that fight alone.

    I think Makdessi will win, IMO he wil outclass him standing and Cruishank will not take him down.

    I think it would be a great stand up fight if they keep it there.

    Makdessi's striking is some of the sexiest in the UFC.
