admittedly ive only seen rockhold's fight with jacare and the tim kennedy one, but if he leaves his hands down and his head out there against vitor the way he did agaisnt jacare then he is probably getting knocked out. hope this goes well for luke

Probably but doesn't mean I wont be rooting for Camozzi. Dude is willing to face whoever they give him even a guy like Jacare on a couple weeks notice. Much respect for that dude.
