haha I was thinking the same thing.  Might as well say:  "I think either fighter A or fighter B will win the contest."

Glad you didn't refer to him as a fighter.

Easy to sell on paper only works if people haven't seen him fight. After the high profile fights he has had, that allure is gone. By having him nullify exciting fighters he hurts that fighter's selling power and subsequently the UFC's appeal by dimming their brightest stars. Imagine if Silva pulled a Shields on Hunt? "Fighters" like Shields are bad for business. Putting him in vs. exciting fighters is even worse.

Jake made Maia's grappling look amateur? Trying to figure out whether you're lying about having watched the fight or whether your screen name is among the most ironic on the UG. Jake won and outgrappled him, but that was no clinic. Well... maybe a sleep clinic.

Well we're either in for an exciting KO, or not so much.
