    Mayhem will dominate that fight.

    Is Rob a standup or ground fighter? Hopefully Cope has worked on this takedown defense

    But Cope was on MTV True life so he must be great! :o He lasted almost 6 minutes with KenFlo haha. I just hope that Cope has laid off working his standup since he knows his Muay Thai and found a BJJ/Wrestling coach to whip him into shape

    They're similar fighters who I think will take things slow.

    I thought he showed great heart to last as long as he did considering he suffered a freak injury in the clinch in r1. btw he's a champion wrestler

    Damn, that's pretty stacked. I feel bad for Kimo as of late. He's basically being fed to anyone they can find.

    My bet is Fighters will get better managers and not be contracted to one organisation similar to boxing.
