Coming up we have a light heavyweight MMA rules bout between Ja Wuan Robinson (ranked 1442 p4p, 201 weight class) and Trenton Funkhouser (ranked 578 p4p, 82 weight class). Both these guys have really solid chins. Will we see a standup war or will they both decide that a knockout is unlikely and try to win the fight elsewhere?
