    Fighting more than one opponent at a time is pretty risky.

    I looked at his record yesturday he seems pretty legit. Most of his fights where in Pancrase with a lot of finishes..

    Quick google shows he’s from Japan/Pancrase circuit, good record for what it is but UFC will be a step up and it’s his debut

    In other words, Saunders might actually win and he usually wins in big fashion!

    If he's intent on pulling rubber guard, Tekken Soto has a great chance

    Yeah, he's got one bad loss but plenty solid wins. Saunders is almost always entertaining so hopefully it is a fun fight.

    I root for Ben every time..... Waiting for that crazy turn-around... That rabbit out of his hat submission..

    He has a lot of mileage and his grit has made those miles hard ones...

    If you are reading Ben.... I'm with ya !

    War !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Saunders is at the tail end of his career he should really focus on his grappling now. Stay away from the slugfests his chin can't handle it anymore.

    well he's 14-2 with 9 KO's, so he's probably not too bad.

    the records of his last 3 wins aren't too bad either, 17-4, 10-2, 20-8.

    hope he stiffens saunders.
