    Din says:
    • key for Cirkunov is to take that fight to the ground, slow it down
    • Misha can't win a battle with Crute using just strength and athleticism
    • Misha's go to is grappling
    • if he forces Crute just to exchange positions at slower pace he can win that fight
    • sometimes you can suck a younger fighter into your type of fight
    • "I really like Jim Crute"
    • Crute has power (Alvey fight reference), grappling & heart (Craig fight)
    • his key to winning is to not get sucked in the grappling match, which makes that fight interesting cuz Crute wants to grapple and is a brown belt
    • Din thinks Crute has to be versatile and can win exchanges based on pure power alone
    • Crute's TDD is ok, not the best (he was taken down few times by Craig, but was able to reverse)
    • Cirkunov is gonna be more relentless with the TDs, Crute has to be aware of that and fight off of few
    • if Crute gets taken down, he should not play that game too long, he needs to keep it a striking fight and be as dynamic as he can

    Crute can either drop poor Misha, or Misha will get the fight to the ground and wear on the younger fighter.

    Coin toss
