Same confusion here as their last booking. Is this for the championship? I can't find that anywhere

I like how they have the toothpick in the poster. You think by now the commission would stop him from fighting with that before it goes through the back of his throat by accident one day.

Chandler is a great fighter, but Benson Henderson is still a monster at lightweight. I thought he won the first fight, but it was very close. Great rematch.

Mitrione vs. Johnson 

I don't get the bookies. Why do they rank Mitrione as favorite?

It should be a no-brainer that Johnson is favorite, imho

Am I overlooking something?

Timothy Johnson has been knocked out by Junior Albini (let that sink in) 

Mitrione should have no trouble, Johnson is the perfect opponent for him.

Well that is kinda the point is terrible better or worse than whatever tim is.
Ko losses at hw are inevitable the best strikers get stopped.
Mat gets subbed and wrasle****** by everyone who ever touches him.
He IS the better athlete but its a fight, he nearly got stopped by joey beltran.
I have zero faith in meat head and if you watch his interview neither does he.

Both men are pretty much just strikers, I don't see Johnson taking Mitrione down without getting hit. Unless there is something I have missed about Johnson, they are pretty similar fighters but Mitrione is just a better, more athletic version, IMO.

Johnson surprised me with the KO over Fortune, so he could surprise me again here. I think Mitrione gets it done in the first round. Both guys are definitely not ground specialists in any way, that's for sure.

It’s been two and a half years since Matt has won a fight and he’s 42 years old. I’m picking the guy who just knocked out Fortune based on principle.
