    Who?

    This has to be a must win for SDR, I doubt they keep him if he loses.

    I was wondering when SDR would fight again. Or if he'd been quietly fired and I hadn't noticed.

    Bizarre, this dude is a LHW and Hasn't fought since May 2012.

    A pretty good LHW prospect who fought for Strikeforce. Last time out he had a really good fight with Virgil Zwicker and got the transfer over to the UFC. He's had a long lay off and a collection of injuries though which probably explains the move to HW (at least temporarily).

    Interesting, this really is a must win for SDR then...Can't go losing to LHW fighters on an injury riddled layoff.

    That Zwicker fight is seared in my memory.

    That wreck really messed SDR up if he losses this.

    This is a very important fight for Del Rosario. Hoping he can make the most if it.

    the fact the UFC kept SDR this long is amazing in itself but theres no way theyre not gonna cut him if he loses this fight though. But this def a winnable fight for him
     
  16. Can't forgive sdr for trying to turn the pat berry fight into a grappling match

    Guto looked pretty good in strikeforce, should be a good fight.

    Really? lol, why stand with a kickboxer when you have a ground game?

    Barry tried the exact same thing when he fought Lavar Johnson.

    That's certainly interesting. What's the point of that for Inocente? He's won four straight. He looked great on the feet in his last fight. Haven't seen him on the ground, and he's lost a couple in his career. I assume it was due to being out-grappled, so that's the type of match SDR should make it. SDR is a pretty good striker, but he's shown susceptible to counters and being hurt, so that's how I think Inocente would beat him on the feet.
