    JDS UD

    Easy

    Not sold on Tuivasa's power after it took him a million shots to KO Asker and only dropped Arlovski once.

    JDS outpoints him. I thought Tai lost the Arlovski fight.

    Rooting for Tuivasa. JDS will probably win though.

    I think JDS should be able to outpoint Tuivasa here. Unless he gets caught by a big shot, I don't think Tuivasa has enough to trouble JDS here.

    Actually super psyched for this fight, I'll be going to this event so hopefully this is confirmed soon. Tai definitely did enough to win against Arlovski but this is a big step up in competition. If Tai can get past JDS he's legit cos despite JDS having his chin cracked a few times his stand up is still elite.

    Junior by Decision, or very late TKO. More skilled striker, and could take him down at will if he wants. I like Tai, but JDS is too good for him rn.

    JDS was one of the worst victims of the USADA experiment. They guy was pure violence and testosterone, KOing fools left and right. And look at him now...

    JDS 49-46 or Tai via flashy KO

    It seems like Overeem will fight Tybura.

    Tuivasa did not impress me against Arlovski. JDS got this.

    This is the real test for Tuivasa. If he defeats Cigano, we will be watching a future Heavyweight Champion, but he will not, i see JSD winning this one by UD or KO

    Easy UD for JDS. Tuivasa looked very average against Arlovski, even his best feature his punching power looked average.
