    Big fight coming up this weekend.

    I got LSC by TKO round 9. I think he's too big and his volume will be too much for Mares to handle.

    Who you got?

    Mares seems to have shaken off the Jhonny KO.
    I think he unloads everything on LSC and wins a wide decision.

    Santa Cruz by decision with a small chance of a late stoppage. I would have never picked Mares in this matchup even before his drop in form post Gonzalez KO.

    Going with Leo by decision as well, maybe like 9-3. Mares hasn't looked great recently but I hope he brings it and we get a good fight.

    I think this is a winnable fight for Mares. LSC has been fighting bullshit competition for a long time now, Mares might be too much.

    Mares IMO, he's been in with way tougher competition. LSC isn't a particularily big puncher and I think he wins the first minute of each round on output, but then Mares gets in close and roughs him up, expect it to get dirty.

    I honestly think people are sleeping on Mares..I think he surprises LSC with his workrate and guts out a decision.

    Mares edges it in a classic, IMO.

    I haven't rooted for Mares since that horrid display when he hit the other guy with millions of low blows for an entire fight.

    Hope he gets knocked out again.
