    There has probably already been a poll on this - since it was announced like ten or so days ago but I can't seem to find it, if it does exist - so I am making a new thread.. :p

    Jimi Manuwa (15-2) and Ovince St.Preux (19-8) are set to collide at UFC 204 in what is sure to be a violent clash of powerful LHW's.

    Who do you guys pick in this fight and why?

    I'm gonna say OSP. I feel like Manuwa's record doesn't reflect the fact that he's at best a gatekeeper at 205. OSP is improving all the time and is going to look to rebound off the Jones loss with a great performance.

    OSP because I always root for the athletic and explosive fighter....when two athletic and explosive fighters face each other I then must factor in which one I have more in common with....OSP via being American.

    OSP cruised to a UD loss to Jones and just took the paycheck. No Hespect.

    I favor OSP because he is more athletic and well rounded but Manuwa has super legit striking.

    My 2 cents is I don't believe Manuwa get's the respect for how good he is because of his high-profile losses to Rumble and Gus. Manuwa comin' for that chin, OSP will need TD's or it will be a long night. Trust me.

    Manuwa is more technical on the feet and packs big power but I think most top LHWs can exploit his wrestling and that def. includes OSP.

    Manuwa will be KOed if he fails to KO OSP in the 1st.

    Manuwa's only two losses came from two of the GOATs, no shame in that.

    He should win this one
