Prediction: wrong Jorgensen   wrong Decision  

I'll be taking Jorgensen by decision.  Barao showed a lot of promise in his fight with Pickett.  But Jorgensen is quicker on the feet and has jiu jitsu that's solid enough to avoid submissions, even with Barao's extensive grappling background.

Prediction: wrong Jorgensen   wrong KO/TKO   wrong Round 1  

Barao is 29 fights unbeaten (THATS CRAZY) and his last fight was his most impressive which I witnessed live, Damn he looked amazing. But that being said he did come out crazy against Pickett and his striking was WILD. I think he tries to do the same to Jorgensen but he gets caught in the first round, Jorgensen by KO.

Curran had Jorgensen in trouble way too many times. Barao just dominated a very game Pickett. I think he wins this.

I think Jorgensen has much better wrestling than barao's past opponents and will use that to stifle barao's offense

Barao wont be able to throw anything at Scott that he hasn't already seen from his fight with Curran.......Jorgensen will grind out a UD

I agree with @Mino and @Swick here... Barao is too explosive and creative.  He will finish in some form imo.

I seriously hope Barao wins, I think he could beat Jorgensen rather decisively to be honest.

I could be wrong, but didn't Jorgensen get caught and hurt pretty bad by Banuelos in their most recent fight? I'm trying to remember if that's the case, and if so, it shows he can get clipped. And if a guy like Barao has you hurt, he finishes.

Prediction: correct Barão   correct Decision  

Split decision, I'm a little skeptical of Barao's standup yet, he seemed to swing wild and i think Jorgensen is a very technical striker, enough to avoid any sort of KO, i think this could go either way.

Barao is young and he is impressive as hell. This fight could easily go to decision but Im gonna pick Barao via sub because I wanna see him make a bigg statement.
