Just once i wanna see what Gonzaga the BJJ Blackbelt  show up and not Gonzaga the K1-striker...i wanna see if he can go on a tear with the skills that got him to the octagon.

Like the Gonzaga that showed up in his last two fights Phone Post

As stated elsewhere, Gonzaga's BJJ should be the difference. The real test is whether he can be disciplined enough to use it.

Gonna go with Big Ben by KO. Amazing fight in any case, I like both these guys.

Also, Gabriel Gonzaga NEEDS to make more philosophizing vids on youtube. "Joke you are a bad" 2.0?!

Rothwell by (T)KO. Excited to see the continued evolution of Diego Nunes.

ROTHWELL did look to be in considerably better shape in last fight and appears to be taking that aspect more seriously.

Not sure what happened to the GONZAGA of a few yrs ago, somewhat of a shot fighter seeing if he can turn his career around.

Wow, this is a good fight. Leaning towards a sub finish by Gabriel, but Ben looked really good his last time out. Hmmm...... Phone Post

Is this card on FOX, FX, Fuel???  Thought 156 was supposed to be in Brazil with Aldo v Edgar but that's in February isn't it?

I'm going to guess Fuel since there's a Fox and FX show the month before. Phone Post

rothwell was getting swept by gilbert yvel and thoroughly outgrappled by mark hunt. Gonzaga is going to eat him alive.

I love this fight! Both guys are really fun to watch and I got the pleasure of meeting both of them at the UFC fan expo in Boston. Both guys were really down to earth and really appreciated the love from the fans.

If Big Ben can stay on his feet he's got a good chance of winning, but napo's bjj is top notch and can definitely sub Ben.

I can't wait for this fight! Phone Post
