Rich trains with Ricardo Liborio and Marcos Parrumpinha Da Matta everyday so he should be fine jujitsu wise. And he did well on the ground with Natal as well in his last fight.

Harris and Rich are completely different fighters. I train with/under Branch at Edge Hoboken and he has been working with Dave Esposito for the past 6 months on his wrestling along with other very good wrestlers so he will be able to handle Rich's wrestling. This is a really good matchup, they are both good on the feet, Branch has great Jiu Jitsu and good wrestling and Rich has great wrestling and good Jiu Jitsu so its an interesting style match up.

 Conditioning and stand up will take this fight.  Rich's take down defense is excellent, and he has more power in his hands with better stand up.  Attonito via TKO
