    RDA will show El Knockdown why he was long time champ

    I favor Tony. He's way more versatile on the feet. He turned the Barboza beating around with 1 elbow that opened up a gash and completely took over the fight. He also has a better chin.

    RDA can win if he can get enough top control for a decision, but otherwise if he chooses to be extra aggressive again, Tony takes it.

    Should be exciting as fuck while it lasts.

    I favour RDA. RDA hits hard and puts combos together well, and Ferguson leaves himself open to be hit too much. Especially with kicks.

    I think RDA ends up taking this.

    When the dust is settled, I just wanna see Diaz vs. T-Ferg.

    That is the perfect matchup for fireworks.

    Totally this. RDA should be able to pressure him into Bolivan but if not, it gets real interesting.

    Man, I understand the matchup but i feel bad for Ferguson, with that kind of streak you deserves a titel shoot.

    Ferguson is a fucking monster. His controlled aggression, constant pressure, and versatility against Barboza was ridiculous. RDA is also great in some of the aspects as well so I'm fully expecting this fight to be a FOTY candidate.

    One title defense makes you a long time champion?

    Someone is getting knocked the fuck out. Hopefully it's RDA. Ferg already earned a shot at gold.

    This is an even match up. Both are pressure fighters who just stick to you like glue and attack. I think there's going to be a finish. One of these guys is going to get clipped being too aggressive and leaving themself open.

    One title defense hardly makes you a long time champ

    One successful title defense is not a Long term champ ;lol

    This is easy fight for Tony. More range better wrestler and Mexican chin > RDA's glassy one.

    Nate has like zero chance vs Tony. One of the best wrestlers in UFC vs one of the worst. Its really too bad he never got to beat Khabib at his own game.
