Prediction: wrong Bezerra   wrong Submission   wrong Round 1  

Saw the weigh in pictures, I guess they had to break the guys up, they were ready to get down on the stage. Bezerra's power is somewhat a mystique, because he finishes mostly by submission, but before those submissions he always wobbles his opponent than slaps on the choke. I think it is one of the best ways to finish your opponent once they are hurt instead of blowing their load trying to swing at a wobbled fighter with awkward movement.
