How do you see this fight playing out?

Maia couldnt tap Jorge and he has never been tapped in his career. If he pulls off a sub it would be huge. Jorge cannot be underestimated though, he is a solid fighter.

Hard to say, Jorge has never looked good against top level competition. Gunnar by decision maybe? Phone Post

very interesting matchup and a big step up for Gunnar

a few unknowns -  jorge at ww. Gunnars chin

 

I think  Gunnars striking is underrated, I can see him hurting Jorge then subbing him.

Jorge is a little chinny, and Blackzillians havent looked too good on their feet recently. i wouldnt be surprised if gunnar gets a flash KO.

Otherwise Gunnar via decision

I'm happy this fights happening. I hope Gunnar wins impressively and gets his name out there. Santiago has been inconsistent. Phone Post

I like Jorge but he always seems to choke when he's on the main card Phone Post

Even though Maia couldn't pull of a sub, I'm thinking Gunnar will pull off a slick one.

Gunni sub sandwich. Phone Post

I have watched some of Jorges interviews frmo yesterday. He is compltely underestimating Gunnar. He just thinks he is a grappler. He is in for a rude awakening.

Very hard fight to predict. I'll go with Gunnar decision, but really, every outcome has a good chance of happening.

I put a lot of money on Gunnar, expect to see him win impressively, but you never know I guess.

one of the rare instances where a fighter dropping out resulted in a better bout being made.

Santiago has br en mixing it up with att so I don't expect him to have the bad luck other guys from blackzilians been having.

Santiago is so damn hard to submit, I don't think gunnar can pull it off. I see gunnar possibly winning by decision due to h is wrestling, bit I see a bigger chance of jorge knocking him out.

Although Gunnar is no doubt the better grappler, this is certainly the most difficult fight he's had and the biggest step up in competition MMA wise to date. I'm picking Gunnar to win, but it's not like Jorge Santiago is a slouch, and he might just look awesome at Welterweight. Who knows?

Then again, just looking at this amazing photo gives me all the confidence in the world in Gunnar in MMA's 170 lb. division:







I mean, Monson is literally a beast of a grappler even at Heavyweight. Pretty amazing, actually!
