Blanco is a really fun guy to watch. Really good fast striker, comes kind of wild early with punches and high kicks in flurries. Kind of like Wandy in Pride, this is why the Japanese call him "The Max Murderer"

I think it has a good shot to go 3 rounds. Rothwell can take some serious damage, and Schaub probably stays on the outside picking his shots, working in and out. I don't think Rothwell has the speed to catch Schaub standing, so it kind of sets up as a Schaub Decision IMO.

Since we are told we can't predict the future. I predict it won't go the distance. Just a gut feeling

Im surprised there are more picks for Evans than Jones. I thought for sure I'd be in the minority with the Evans upset.
