    Just going to say it first - Burroughs over Howe, somewhat comfortably.

    After seeing that Burroughs has, in fact, recovered from his knee surgery pretty well and is not undersized or underpowered at 65, I think I'll agree with you. I don't know how comfortable it will be, but I like him to win it.

    I should clarify "somewhat comfortably" by saying it definitely won't be a lopsided score. Something like 5-3 Burroughs with Howe never really in danger of getting the last TD to tie it up.

    Are the finals going to be recorded somewhere? I'm guessing it won't be live unless you purchase a package or something like that.

    Going to be one hell of a match. I don't think I can see Howe losing though.

    Agree: it's very difficult to imagine either of them losing. It's just harder for me to imagine Burroughs losing on his feet, he probably escapes, and I doubt Howe turns him.

    As I think about it, Howe's best chance is probably if he wears Burroughs down. I guess late in the match, if Burroughs isn't in tip-top shape, Howe has a good shot at a takedown. I'll still take Burroughs, though.

    Howe DEC Burroughs

    BTW, Kentucky_Mudflap on themat.com hinted that Mark Perry may be bringing Boris Novachkov to the Midlands.
