    Rosholts chance of winning is respectable. I'm shocked that your reading comprehension is so poor.

    I'm shocked that a businessman such as yourself can't see this.
    Gotta be careful of the best laid plans ... though. There have been other fights that looked to be setup to give a guy a win and move forward and they didn't work out. This is a tough fight for Jake. Sakara is a gatekeeper, but that doesn't mean he doesn't close the gate sometimes.

    Also while not on the same level Sakara made a wrestler pay his last fight for trying to stand a little too long.

    Lets just hope JensenS is correct and this ends up being an easy fight for Rosholt. JensenS does have somewhat of a decent amount of wrestling knowledge, perhaps he knows some MMA too.
    Lets go Brent!

    Should be an interesting fight. Sakara looks much bigger than 185 in this photo. Jake really has to have a good game plan going into this fight. Hopefully, Jake has really focused on his boxing skills.

    Lets also remember thism an was beaten unconscious by Chris Leben, Houston Alexander, and Drew McFedries (brawlers all). So while striking is his "strong" suit, it's a relative term. That's like saying "you don't want to go to the ground with Elvis Sinosic."
    Jacob Schlottke---Gone too soon, and the world is a little less bright because of it. RIP, brother.

    One, two, Evans is coming for you...

    And in this case his striking will look like joe frazier compared to rosholts. Sakaras chin is a little suspect but the three guys you mention all have ridiculous power.

    I think Rosholt is going to lose. For some reason he doesn't dominate with takedowns like other wrestlers seem to in MMA (Hamill, Edgar, Hughes) and Sakara is pretty good on the ground too, I think he'll avoid damage.
