Prediction: wrong Schafer   wrong Submission   wrong Round 1  

Rivera could pull out the KO in this fight, but I think Schafer gets this fight to the ground, and wins via submission or decision.

Prediction: wrong Schafer   wrong Submission   wrong Round 2  

If it stays standing then Schafer is going to lose but I don't think it will, I think Schafer will manage to get Rivera down in the second and submit him.

Prediction: wrong Schafer   wrong Submission   wrong Round 1  

Who's got weak TD defense, Jorge Rivera does, who has notoriously weak submission defense Jorge Rivera does. A fight tailor made for Schafer.

Prediction: correct Rivera   correct KO/TKO   wrong Round 1  

Going against the Tapology community (and the betting odds) on this one. I don't think Schafer has what it takes to overcome Rivera's stand up. Stat breakdown at: http://www.breakdownfights.com/?p=2703

Schafer will struggle getting it to the ground, Rivera wins the standup but doesn't get the finish

I'm changing my pick to Rivera....He's on MMAjunkie Radio today and fighters who have done the show on the day of their fights are 9-0! It's a ******* ridiculous reason but i don't care! haha

With Rivera retiring after this, I would have to assume his heart isnt in it.  I've got Paul Schafer via dec.
