I think Sean Strickland takes this. Seems like a solid prospect. I'm not sure McDaniel deserves to be in the UFC. But with the UFC running so many shows, I'm not sure what that means anymore.

Mcdaniel doesn't have much standup, but once you get him on the ground he is really scrappy so it will be interesting to see how he handles a strong UFC prospect.

McDaniel is better than he showed on TUF but Strickland should get the win here.

Piercerdan, I agree with you but he impressed me vs. Tavares. I have to favor him this Saturday especially with Strickland's extremely short notice. And not liking someone doesn't cause them to lose unfortunately. I can attest to this because Jones is still champ.

Bubba isn't exactly an enigma or whatever, but 2 weeks notice is not enough time to properly prepare for a fight.

Edit - Well, I just saw where Strickland was preparing to fight Drwal in Poland, so he is in fight shape. **** I don't know who to pick

Don't care much for Bubba so I will continue to pick against him!

Strickland was a deer in the headlights at UFC. The crowd overwhelmed him a bit. Interesting I find this.

Prediction: correct Strickland   correct Submission   wrong Round 2  

I'm hopping on board the Strickland bandwagon.  Kid's fought 13 times and six of them were scheduled 5 rounders.  Granted, only two of those went out of the first, but those two both went all five.  That kind of experience that early in a career can/should do wonders.  A bright future lays ahead.

@Beauxpati, I agree ... I was pretty confident in my pick before I saw how totally weirded out he was by the whole thing. I don't think I've ever seen a debutante so thrown off before.

On a whole, with the Johny debacle and him the weigh ins have made me totally lose faith in my picks :)

I'm sticking with my picks though (mainly on account of me looking for any excuse I can find to pick against Bubba), I'm either going to fail miserably or get me a UFC solo finally :)

McDaniel decision. Only because Strickland took the fight on short notice.
