    I like this math up. I was a little dissapointed when shogun pulled out 2 days after i got my ticket but the card looks to be coming together nicely. I'd say chonan for the win if he commits more than he did against karo parisyan.

    If you saw the first fight, Chonan dominated from start to finish and opened up a cut that eventually got him the victory. This fight should be no different. Chonan's Jiu Jitsu is incredibly underrated as he has only been submitted once and that was by world renown blackbelt Paulo Filho. On the other hand, Jucao just got tapped out by a blue belt Kevin Burns in his last fight and by Fitch two fights prior. Jucao is 12-7 but his most credible wins are over Clementi and DeSouza, while he has lost against sub par fighters like Burns, Nascimento whereas Chonan's losses are against top level guys like Hendo, Filho, Karo, Almeida. Chonan is a slight favorite, but the line is almost even…I was in Vegas 2 weeks ago and put 800 on Chonan…I am 19-4 in betting UFC fights and this is one of my easier selections.
