Prediction: Jackson  |  Decision

I'm honestly interested in this fight, I think it'll be fun to compare two complete amateurs to the skilled professionals that fight before and after them. 

I don't know why people are picking Jackson to win by submission, he showed in his fight against Mickey Gall that his roots are in boxing, all he did was circle and jab. Mickey Gall is also a credentialed grappler that's won NAGA and competed with the likes of Gordon Ryan. I think Jackson will manage to win a UD by using his basic boxing skills and beating Punk on the feet. If it goes to the ground, I think Punk will be the one to take it there, as the fact that he was able to not get choked out instantly against Gall indicates that he's been training his grappling at least a little bit. BJJ Scout also made a video that talked about how Punk did on the ground.

I'm more interested in this than any Cyborg fight. But that isn't saying much.

Here's a video of Gall grappling Gordon Ryan, by the way, in case you don't believe that part.
