I hope the Uno fight makes the broadcast, although I wouldn't be surprised if it doesn't...
Stuve's body was designed to be put in a Nelson crucifix. I have feeling this fight will be three rounds of him smothered by the fat mans manboobs.
Really hope Gomi pulls it up, but I doubt it. He's washed up. His wrestling and punching power makes him a dangerous matchup for anyone though.
I predict that Nelson will go for a low single-leg takedown and shatter Struve's knee.
I don't think he ever was washed up but the bastard just doesn't fucking train. He's not BJ Penn but he think he is since he's beaten a bunch of can fighters.

Gomi by epic comeback.
Nelson by newly invented smother choke known as "The Cheeseburger" (I heart Nelson)
Rivera by RangeringUp
Uno by TKO
Okami by TKO/UD

In Okami's case it is due to his general inability to be an entertaining fighter. His fights also typically go to the judges which makes them less appealing to a card with hard time constraints.

Yeah I agree that he got overly cocky and became lazy. But to say he beat nothing but a bunch of cans is retarded. He cleaned house in Pride Bushido, beating down a lot of Top LWs like Sakurai, Ishida, Kawajiri and Pulver. He also put an end on Ralph Gracie´s MMA career with a 6 second KO, which I believe is a Pride record.

Florian has better submissions and more technical striking but Gomi's power and wrestling could cause problems. Let's hope so.
Btw, where did that "War (fighter's name)" practice come from?
