I just looked on wikipedia and it has Jon Fitch vs Johnny Hendricks on UFC 139, do you think theres any truth to this or just someone trolling?

Like both but think Tibau takes it via strength

I don't know. Pellegrino, not particularly known for any standup, rocked Tibau recently. Dos Anjos just KTFO G-Sot. RDA was beating Guida until he had to tap from the jaw break. But Tibau has given tough fights to Jim Miller and Melvin Guillard. Definitely a good fight. Can't pick a winner.

That's true...i totally forgot about the GSOT KO. That was impressive. I really, really like this fight and who knows what happens if they start trading??

This but at the same time dos Anjos's stand up just knocked GSOT out. Anything can happen but I agree with you

Tibau all day...dude's striking has looked very good lately and I think he can out work Dos Anjos and out muscle him.

I like Dos Anjos, but he's going to get grapplefucked here.

I don't know what to think of this fight. I mean I like it but I'm confused to who will win. Tibaus wrestling and top game are fierce but Dos Anjos is a gracie barra black belt so you know he's a beast off his back. I think Dos Anjos has better stand up but Tibau has looked ok as well(looked beastly vs Uno).It's a very interesting match up and would make tons of sense as a spike prelim.
