I don't know taking a fight on short notice always earns points with the UFC. As long as Efrain comes in on weight he will get at least one more fight.

I think Escudero should be 1 up over Volkmann in just about every area of this fight.

As a not-very-intimidating-looking-but-secretly-a-badass myself I like Volkmann. Him and me and Kenny Florian should get together and sell insurance. I like Volkmann for the win, but Escudero is more dangerous than the odds are giving credit for. Escudero to bet on the long shot: http://www.breakdownfights.com/?p=2248

Prediction: wrong Escudero   wrong Submission   wrong Round 2  

This is a close one as @buffalo said, they're both have weakness but Volkmann has terrible stand up and Escudero's its fairly good, so Volkmann is going to take advantage of his wrestling, thats a no brainer, but imo Escudero has better ju-jitsu and can defend from his back, and he knows it's his last shot in the UFC, if Volkmann looses, no biggie but it's no the case for Escudero.
