Stephen A Smith gets his MMA knowledge from reading fighter's wikipedia pages. Him and Michael Eaves are ESPN guys, who clearly are ******* clueless about MMA. Putting them alone on an UFC analyst desk is legit disgraceful and laughable.

I wonder if Edmen's ribs make him more vulnerable to body shots? Not even trolling, maybe he's more likely to break a rib?

Thought that guilly was in. Forgot that guillotine isn't a real submission and if you just don't consent it can't choke you out.

You can see Imavov can shut his lights any moment. They both HQ fighters,but I picked Imavov (switched my pick from Shahbazyan) another last minute switched pick.
