Coming up we have a welterweight MMA rules bout between Tim Pierno (ranked 406 p4p, 59 weight class) and Fredrik Rienfeldt (ranked 383 p4p, 55 weight class). Chooooooooon! I think Pierno might be my favorite fighter, now he's come out to Sick Puppies - You're Going Down . 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?
