@thiagosilva9794: Please remove the "Heil" from your post. If you think this is cool or funny, then your're wrong. Nobody in Germany uses it in this context anymore (for historical reasons), unless they're neo-Nazis!

And by the way, I also hope that Siver wins.

I'm gonna go with Siver for the "heil" of it...

I'm kidding, but I also understand @inspektor_voss here, it's not that cool and I bet Siver himself wouldn't like it either, on the other hand I don't care about Nazi jokes it's the dark past of the country and we got to live with it...

sivers cuttin down to fw? i had no idea...i see that as a tough cut, i didn't think he was a guy who had weight to lose. guess we'll see. if he makes the cut w/o complications then i think he's a real force at fw...i don't see him beatin aldo, but i think i'd consider him the fav over most fw.

but i gotta see how the cut goes

Siver at featherweight - Yes please. You can never count out Nova União though.

I wonder how Siver will respond to this drop in weightclass... This fight will be a razor thin win for either guy, but Im initially going with Nunes

Prediction: correct Siver   correct Decision  

Siver takes this quite handily.  I'm pretty surprised that Nunes is the favorite here.  Stylistically Siver easily outpoints Nunes.  Nunes' style really doesn't do well for himself in the eye of the judges, and Siver's the better kickboxer here, so he won't get tagged like in the Cerrone fight (which so many people choose to use as the comparison).  If you're going to compare it to any of Siver's old fights, it'll look more like the Siver/Wiman fight.

I think Nunes needs the takedown to win.  This might be similar to Siver vs Wiman.
