    I’m going for Munoz to win this fight, his ground and pound is devastating. Weidman is also a good fighter but I would be very surprised if he could pull a win out this fight.

  2. J A N says:

    Mark Munoz for the win

  3. Canilive says:

    Corissa this is just for you….
    WEIDMAN via total destruction.

    Mark Munoz would beat the brakes off of Weidman. Weidman dud well against Maia but Maia’s striking is still elementary at best. Muniz can stand and bang and the wrestling is nullified but miunoz still has the advantage

    Weidman is a can.He “FITCHED”sakara to a boring ass win.And got to fight Maia outa luck as a last min thing because Bisping was pulled to fight sonnen.he happened to win Maia in a boring ass fashion.He needs to pay his dues and doesnt deserve to fight anybody noteworthy like Munoz.
