    I hope rumble has a good gas tank...

    GUS is gonna dance around around all night throwing leather at his face.

    Awesome awesome fight!

    He'll have a shitload of trouble trying to match Gus for five. If he doesn't find an opening or force one before it gets to that, I don't see him winning.

    Rumble will "Phil Davis" Gus. He will be the next 205 champ.

    Rumbles best chances are early

    Rumble is STRONG, I see him taking this to the ground once he starts getting tired. I could see him winning a decision, he looked fresh in all 3 rounds against Arlovski.

    I don't think Rumble can take Gus down. If he gets tired, I see him going the wall n stall route.

    I have either Rumble or Gus winning...Seriously though, I think Gus takes it. Rumbles best chance is for an early KO and I'm sure Gus is training for that.

    I'll do you one better - He needs to finish it in the first.

    The 5 rounds are the real problem for Johnson.
    But he will win regardless.

    Sounds reasonable, perhaps even likely. I don't think many can out work Gus over a 5 round fight. He uses his range well and keeps a nasty pace. Rumble will have to at least win the early rounds to have a shot. If he falls behind on the scorecard he's in for a long night.

    First three you infidel! After that, yes, Gus should have the upper hand.

    Joke's on you for thinking you can say 100% who wins.

    Rumble can catch Gus and slow him down, thats a good shot.

    I do agree based on the way he is built his cardio shouldn't be very good.. that said he went 3 rounds with Phil Davis and didn't look the least bit tired at the end. On the flip side, it was a super easy fight for him and Phil hardly made him work at all.

    Rumble isn't fighting at 170lbs anymore. He showed good cardio against Branch, AA, and Davis.
