Both fighters are really talented I just think Oliveira is a little more talented.

Prediction: correct Swanson   correct KO/TKO   correct Round 1  

Oliveira the favorite?! What?!

This will look almost identical to the Cerrone fight. Oliveira wins when he can beat the guys in the standup and force them to take it to the ground where he is even better. Except in this case, he is completely outclassed on the feet. Swanson alll day.

If Oliviera lost to Cowboy at LW via strikes, he'll have his hands full with Swanson, who is on a 2R TKO roll.

Prediction: correct Swanson   correct KO/TKO   correct Round 1  

My problem with Swanson is he is like a double edged sword, he can be brilliant and bring the fight and win spectacularly, but then he will do some head scratching stuff like he did against Lamas. I currently have Swanson, but my pick will probably change multiple times until the fight.

Swanson's biggest Problems are mental and he is in a good place now with his short win streak. He has good tdd and that is going to be bad news for oliviera

@hiblet Oliveira doesn't wrestle at all...why would Swanson's TDD matter. He needs to be worried about Charles stand-up and submissions.

@hiblet Good TDD, he has some of the worst TDD in the division!!!  He gets taken down easily pretty much every fight it seems like.

Prediction: wrong Oliveira   wrong Submission   wrong Round 2  

Do Bronx has better striking, and a better ground game, despite being a brown belt, and Cub being a black belt. I think he is just better everywhere, but thats just my opinion. Do Bronx taps him in the second after making him look like a child in the stand up in the first

edit: meant ground game, not brown game lol

Yup, well that was dumb, I'm not sure who I was thinking of with the tdd. I know oliviera doesn't have wrestling  but I think he is going to try to take it to the ground because he has a better chance subing him than standing with him.....or I could be totally off again.....

I think Swanson has a clear advantage on the feet, he needs to spend a lot of time working on his submission defense because that's really his biggest weakness.

You don't need to wrestle to take people down. And Oliveira takes people down in majority of his fights if not mistaken as well as goes for peoples backs and drag them to the ground.  Swanson's TDD will most likely play a part in this matchup.

I think Swanson gets this done in the 2nd. The first round will end up being a stand up round, a more technical one, but in the 2nd Swanson is gonna blast him.
