    This is a really good fight. Dawodu bounced back from a disappointing debut and looked incredibly sharp for 3 rounds in his second fight. I expect him to settle in even more here and hopefully pick up a finish win, although I won't hold my breath. Bochniak is very tough.

    Dawodu is a potential top 10 fighter if he works on his grappling.

    I made a thread about Dawodu before his last fight and people didnt know who he was - agreed on his potential though

    definitely a very cool fight that will probably be under the radar

    I witnessed his debut in London live. Yikes lol. Ironically I missed his sophomore fight in my backyard since I was at a buddy's wedding, still need to watch it. Bochniak is pretty decent though, no? Wasn't he the guy who went those wild three rounds with Zabit at 223? He got handled, but made it fun.

    Hopefully Hakeem is up for the challenge.

    Yep, first thought was bye-bye Bochniak (consecutive losses and a poor overall record), but Dawodu needed 15mins and the judges to beat a rubbish Austin Arnett and Bochniak is tougher and a lot better than him. Bochniak, UD.

    Danny Henry should get better fights

    He made easy work from overhyped Hakeem

    Bochniak is a tough out here but honestly. I think Dawodu picks him apart on the feet.

    I think Dawodu is overrated as hell

    He didn't look that great in his last fight against a nobody. Bochniak will walk through his shots and break him with his forward pressure. Dawodu's chin is also shaky, which doesn't bode well for him going forward when he fights elite competition.

    Yep he was the one who went the full 3 rounds with Zabit and did pretty well against him IMO but he has also Alternated Wins and Loses since fighting in the UFC , Which could mean he is due for a win .
    Also Thanks TS for the fight announcement / Updates as usual

    Hakeem Olajuwon would be HW champ with 2 days prep time
