BJPENN.com Fighter Picks Thiago Santos vs. Johnny Walker:
Devin Clark, UFC light heavyweight: Santos, I feel like he will be patient and finish Walker. He won’t fall for Johnny’s antics.
Modestas Bukauskas, UFC light heavyweight: This is a really interesting one. Both of them are amazing but I think Johnny Walker, his athleticism, volume, and unpredictability will get him the win.
Christos Giagos, UFC lightweight: I like Johnny Walker and I think he can actually catch Santos and finish him.
Alex Morono, UFC welterweight: This is a really good fight, they are both great strikers but I think Thiago Santos can catch Walker and get the KO.
Charles Rosa, UFC featherweight: I have to go with Thiago Santos as he is more durable and we have seen Walker be knocked out and rocked.
Jeff Molina, UFC flyweight: Man, that’s tough, a lot of variables with their KO power. I will go with Santos though, Walker gets too wild and gets hit a lot.
Joe Solecki, UFC lightweight: I think Thiago Santos, and he probably knocks him out.
Tim Elliott, UFC flyweight: That is a toss-up but I will go with Johnny Walker. His striking can cause problems for Santos but either guy can get finished at any moment.
