Good step up fight for Tom Breese. He'll be fighting a solid guy who'll be fighting at near his hometown.

Good test for Breese. He'll get it done even at a reach disadvsntage. I can see him using his boxing to get to the inside, clinching and taking this to the ground and riding out ground control for three rounds. I don't think Strickland is a live dog. They're both big for the weight class but Breese is even bigger

Prediction: correct Strickland   correct Decision  

Tom just fought a month ago and I thought he looked pretty bad vs Nakamura arguably losing as the -1200 favorite.He's very young,he should have taken a little time off to improve after his last performance.He fought a dumb fight and looked scared to let his hands go.He looked like a headcase iirc and I think they were saying he said he get's very nervous,and should work on that stuff.Or maybe i'm thinking of a different fight but I think it was that one.I wouldn't be surprised if Sean won,he's very good and always improving a ton. @Osantowski I don't see how you can say Strickland isn't a live dog here,I think he is but that's just my opinion.

Prediction: correct Strickland   correct Decision  

I agree with @Kuma ... I don't even think Strickland's a clear underdog at that ... both are very talented wherever the fight goes, both young, long and each have their slight advantages and disadvantages.

Strickland seems to get a bit complacent in his fights, tends to look like he's happy to jab his way to wins even when in reality he's not really winning the fight while as Breese looked crazy good until his last fight where he showed holes a guy like Strikland has all the tools to expose, plus Strickland won't give Breese the length/reach advantage he's used to and I believe Strickland has faster hands.

That said, while both are young with buckets of potential, I believe Breese to be the more focused of the two. Stickland has that "Andre Fili" feel about him where he's talented but doesn't seem to completely "get it", doesn't have that fire, while as Breese is driven like a ************. I have a feeling that gives him the edge in this fight.

Im going with Strickland don't let that complacent attitude fool you that's  part of Stricklands game very head strong and determined never plays his hand very smart fighter Strickland will win third round TKO.

Another one I have flip flopped on. I was leaning Strickland until the weight ins. Breese looks huge and is ever slowly improving up at Tristar.
