    we all know vinny has a weak chin, but superb ground game… better than nog "basic" BJJ. bader has some excellent wrestling skills, but that doesn't automaticallytranslate to BJJ defense. bader will most likely try to GnP vinny or KO him on his feet. vinny will want to go tht eground obviously. i think nover will be too athletic for evafron. don't let nover's passing out from the heat fool you. efron is a good fighter, but in his TUF fights, he always showed a little hesitation. nover should either GnP or submit him. nover's nickname should be renamed to — the filipino GSP.

    But how do we know Vinny has a weak chin? People kept saying that he doesn't like to be hit in the face, but no one ever proved it.

    Derek, Nichole brings up a good point about Vinny's chin, not to mention, he wasn't afraid to exchange in some of his fights. I think he will surprise people. I would also love to see him and Nog roll with eachother. I think Nog would submit him. Vinny is kind of cocky and I hope he gets put in his place. I think the only thing Efrain MIGHT have over Nover is strength, but that is arguable.
