    I think the dude is overlooked, i he will put up a bigger challenge than people think against Gonzaga. I'm actually thinking of putting down 100 bucks on him. :noes:

    .


    If he wins, its cause he hit gonzaga in the nose. I dont know what it is, but that guy just hates getting hit in the nose. Which makes his sponsorship all the more ironic.

    Carwin is overrated and wont be much of a threat at HW.

    In that whole, not rated at all, kind of way?

    He's got a tiny bit of talking hype on the forums - but no one is talking about him being the next best anything. He's big, strong and athletic.

    Gonzaga beats him on the feet or the floor.

    i was basing overrated on the event's commercial, and the fact that he is even advertised.

    and agreed. Gonzaga's power will crumble him, and if he takes it to the ground, Gonzaga will mangle him.

    It's so weird to see these guys like Fitch and Carwin. Neither of them was even televised their first X fights and now they get a big name opponent and they are marketed like they are awesome.

    Carwin is a very good wrestler with KO power.

    Win or lose in this fight I think he has potential to be a contender

    I didnt know he trains with Jackson. I retract my previous statement. an undefeated HW with that kind of a finishing record, training with Jackson... ...dude is not getting the hype I would expect.

    Gonzaga should win, but with that size and power he has a punchers chance against anyone.

    Gonzaga takes it i think. Guessing Sub, gonna say kimura/americana

    I wouldn't mind seeing Gonzaga vs Mir or Lesnar if he pulls of an impressive win in this fight

    I wouldn't mind seeing either Gonzaga or Carwin vs those guys. Carwin ftw though. He's got size, power, speed, and enough wrestling to not allow Gonzaga to control him.

    He's got the skills and the body to compete in the HW division, but this might be too big of a step up for him to handle.

    I'm pulling for him - and I think he's got a chance, but I would be moderately surprised if he gets the win.

    I got money on Carwin.

    IIRC Greg Jackson was in his corner for the Wain fight. O_O

    PS good to see you back MLA -- those 6 months passed back really quick.
