    I'd be interested to know your reasoning behind Knight. He seems to rely on his weight alone to execute takedowns with minimal technique. Knight also got outwrestled in his last appearance on DWCS before his opponent ran out of gas late on. Brundage is a D1 wrestler and has outwrestled guys of Knight's weight before. I think Knight goes for takedowns because he's not so great on his feet - he looks striking is sloppy and his movement is poor.

    Brundage trains at Factory X which has good coaches and fighters so he will have had the opportunity to spar with fighters who as big and strong as Knight in preparation for the fight. Where does Knight train?

    I'm going to bet on the guy with the better athleticism and skillset.

    Yeah I thought so-and honestly his record was not the best-ESP at higher weight........I was not sure if he wrestled D1 for a short time or something......Neither guy's skills are jaw dropping BUT I do like the guys who get multiple shots----THEY see something as well....

    Lawrence/Johnson looks to be a high quality fight

    I like Knight, Johnson, & Baghdasaryan...I can't figure out why Baghdasaryan is a dog. Only watched one fight of each but he looked superior to Buzukia

    Parlaying Knight/Baghdasaryan...probably a small straight bet on each as well

    Now knight is +130?

    It's because he has bad cardio.

    Should be the better, more dangerous guy when fresh but I expect him to slow down significantly if he doesn't get a R1 finish.

    Fantasy draft and a Nuggets Game 7 tonight so won't be following along very closely live. Picking a lot of knockouts.

    Wow, I thought Knight was done. That was a great turnaround

    Any strike to the side of the head can knock off your equilibrium, but especially elbows like that

    Didn't catch the fights but my Nuggets won a thriller to overcome a 3-1 series deficit.

    He also deserved a contract IMO.....Longo Serra and Weidman just find these athletic genetically gifted guys with zero skills/tough chins and try to roid and motivate them LOL.....the kid has the best skills of the night besides Flick....I feel bc he was connected to Tarverdyan they gave him the short end of the stick.......

    He sure did Paper. He landed a lot of hard shots and fought his guts out. He definitely deserved a contract
