    This fight is going down at UFC Fight Night 60 in Colorado. Since Thiago Tavares dropped down to 145 he's had one fight against a heavy hitter in Robbie Peralta and subbed him in the first round. He's getting a stiff test next in top 10 opponent Nik Lentz, a fight between two power house grapplers.

    Who do you think wins? I think if Thiago Tavares can have another successful weight cut he wins it, I don't see anything Nik Lentz does that Tavares doesn't do better. Lentz is a talented wrestler but I think Tavares has the obvious strength and grappling advantage. As for the winner, I'd love to see against either Dennis Bermudez, Charles Oliveira or Holloway after he smashes Cole Miller.

    What do you guys think?
