    We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

    Gunnin for Gunnar!
    Just because I can NEVER remember how to score my points!
    6 points for winning fighter, then another 2 if you guess the method, then another 2 if you guess the round

    Kind of an emotional pick, as I've watched Max Holloway since the beginning, and I'm pulling for him, but Brian Ortega shows every sign of being one of those special, almost destined to be champion type fighters. If Max can keep Brian off of him, avoid the mat and keep it standing, I think he'll have a great chance to win, but can't forget Ortega is also an outstanding striker. On the ground, I think Ortega's jujitsu comes from a deep place, and not sure Max, or anyone else, has the tools to deal with that level of skill. Would really like to hear "And Still!!!", but won't be surprised if we hear "And New!!"....

    Such a tough fight for me, I love both of these guys, but I think I like T-City just a little more....pulling for Ortega I think

    I'm leaning Holloway for the fight based on Ortega and his willingness to lose rounds. Until his last fight, he'd never won a round in the UFC, but always takes the risk for a finish and it's paid off for him......also why I like him so much as a fighter. Just hard to think that Holloway won't be smart and just outwork him for 5 rounds, although Ortega could end the fight at any time. It's a great fight on paper, hope it lives up to the hype.

    Let's hope Max makes it to the fight, I'm not convinced quite yet he does

    Yeah, def a tough fight for me to pick...really like both of them...Max is a brilliant striker with movement and intuition of a champion...Ortega is a true martial artist from his well roundedness up to his attitude and self discipline...won't be disappointed with either guy that wins...but can't help wanting Ortega to fullfill his dream!

    Yeah, that's definitely another x factor in this fight. How is Max? I reckon he makes it to the fight this time, but they never got to the bottom of his issues from the last fight, so anything could be at play.

    I'll go Anders, mostly because I despise Theodorou
