    I'll take Lucas. He looks...better? Since dropping two damn weight classes. I find it pretty funny that he said fuck FW all together and went straight from lightweight to bantam.

    Lucas has a grasshopper bodybuild.
    Johnny Eduardo has more striking experience, I think he takes this fight.

    Never seen the guy fight. I find it pretty funny though that he has "Muy Thai" poorly tattooed across his stomach yet he has half as many KO wins as he does subs.

    Not really impressed with Eduardo and think Martins should win but stranger things have happened.

    I'm assuming the main card for this fight night will be:

    Vitor vs. Hendo
    Mutante vs. Sarafian
    Feijao vs. Pokrijac
    Jason vs. Stephens
    Thiago vs. Thatch
    Maria vs. Ortiz

    Pretty good main card IMO. I love this fight night cards.

    Martins has looked impressive, besides taking that short notice fight at LW against Barboza.

    I think his streak of havoc is going to continue, at least through this fight.

    iirc, he was getting tore up by Jeremy Larsen til he got the surprise KO in the third.

    Yeah, he was getting beat up and looked wobbly a couple of times.

    Still, I find it kind of impressive for a guy to show KO power at 155lbs and see it carry down to 135lbs.

    Martins got lit up by a wrestler.

    Eduardo is a high-level striker.

    Martins is getting fucked up, here.

    Exactly what i was thinking, Larsen was doing very well standing with Martins. It'll be a solid fight as Martins does seemS quicker/ more athletic but he likes to leave himself open after throwing punches which is where Eduardo should take advantage. Potential Fotn candidate

    My only doubt regarding Eduardo is I can't remember any of his UFC fights! Which lead me to believe, he's more of a point-striker than an aggressive striker, so Martins has a chance I suppose. IIRC, Eduardo's a big bantamweight, too?

    Interesting bout. I'd pick Johnny by dec using his LK's.

    Lucas, in spite of looking good at BW, exposes himself too much and Johnny won't dismiss the holes.
