PBP Commentary

Coming up we have a welterweight MMA rules bout between Conor Butcher (ranked 486 p4p, 672 weight class) and Keisuke Matsuzaka (ranked 75 p4p, 106 weight class). Chooooooooon! I think Butcher might be my favorite fighter, now he's come out to Eaten by Bloodbath. 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?
