    both are pretty solid guys, but i think felder takes it.

    Burns is fantastic at bjj, but his striking looked lackluster in his last fight and Felder is notoriously tough.

    I think felder gets a stoppage or decision

    I keep hoping for more of this but Felder's fight I.Q is boulder level.

    Yep. Brandon Thatch was another one I had really high hopes for.

    I try not to think about Brandon Thatch. Too many bad memories of believing he'd be champ lol

    I still think Burns can be top 10, idk about Felder though. He's been incredibly underwhelming.

    Burns takes this. He'll get him to the ground eventually when Felder throws some wild, uncontrolled shit as always. Will always like Felder for murking Castillo though. And what the fuck is up with Randy Brown? Dude fights every 2 months. I respect that but come on; he's not that exciting.

    It'll be really frustrating if they can't add 1-2 more big matchups to this card when Aldo/Holloway, Chris Weidman AND Frankie Edgar were all looking for fights on this card.

    If they don't add at least Aldo/Holloway, they might as well scrap the PPV, because the buty-rate is going to be historically awful.

    I hope they add Aldo/Max and Silva /Weidman.they need a main and solid Co main.

    Holly just lost 2 and Germaine?

    How about all time dud, Eric Silva. A lot of dudes on here argued that he was a better prospect than Rory. Classic numbnuttery.

    You and 95% of UFC fans share this thought. Aldo/Holloway would change this card in a big way though.
