    I also think Roop should consider 125

    He wouldn't be forfeiting as much of a size disadvantage if he dropped. Good idea, I'm on board.

    Mizugaki by whatever he wants. Punching bag Roop gets levelled.

    I don't think this match-up favours Mizugaki, and Roop KO'ing him is foreseeable.

    It's a shame there's no men's Strawweight division in the UFC, he'd rule with an iron fist against guys his own size.

    Loser goes home.

    Mizugaki probably wins a UD.

    Roop should be facing someone like Gibson, Caceras or Brimage.

    Ehh, Mizu by submission.

    Mizugaki by late tko or ud. He's a great fighter, sadly mostly a gatekeeper at this point, but he's exciting to watch.
    It would have been cool to have Gomi on this card instead of the one last week. Hell, he might have even won, oh well though.

    This is the first time since being under Zuffa employ that Mizugaki is on a two-fight losing streak. Pretty crazy.

    Miz by dec

    Miz should win. Decent fight though.

    I'm curious who Horiguchi fights more.
