    Idk, Clarke has a solid sub game. I think this one will be a war.

    Chiesa is a tough sob and had an absolute war with Lauzon.

    I look forward to watching him compete.

    Niiiiiice grappling contest here.

    Mitch Clarke was robbed of SOTY with that D'arce, if an Omoplata had been done in the UFC before he would have won it.

    Chiesa has this. Clarke scored a beautiful sub vs Iaquinta but Im not convinced he's really good yet.

    Me too. I don't think too many people on here have watched his fights, I see lay and pray and boring wrestler thrown around a lot, but the guy absolutely brings it. Suffocating ground style and an educated submission game, most of his wins are by submission, actually. He was going to beat Lauzon if they didn't stop it with the cut.
