Misha Cirkunov, SUB, R1
I think Cirkunov will dominate on the ground.

Walker, KO/TKO R1.
Sheesh, hard to envy Misha here.Talk about out of the frying pan and into the fire.This must be like getting your blood test results back and the doctor saying 'well, your triglycerides and cholesterol levels are optimal. However, you do have AIDS'.
Anyway, I like Cirkunov a lot but he is probably going to get KO'ed here. Probably. He'll wrestle as the situation demands, but he does prefer to bang if he can. However, if he can sub Cutelaba there's a chance he can sub Walker. Johnny isn't Ion though, he's a much more unorthodox, varied and dangerous striker. And Cutelaba was on debut when he dropped that one.
Just not a good fight any way you look at it for Cirkunov. Walker isn't a big name yet, and isn't even top 15. If he loses, he gets consigned to the doldrums, and if he wins, only the hardcore fans will give a ****, and he won't move forward in terms of rankings very much at all. This isn't really a fight he can win even if he does.
I think we've only just seen the tip of the monstrous iceberg that is Walker.This will be his third fight in three ******* months! Honestly, Smith is fighting for the title right now, and if you put Walker in there with Smith tomorrow, Johnny would obliterate him.He gets another first round finish here.
