Although I still root for Georges, and believe he will get the 'W', I realize Nick is a serious threat in a lot of areas.
Yeah, he does look a lot bigger than he has in the past. Not to derail this thread, but have you seen the video of him hitting the speed bag for 20+ minutes? It is unreal how he keeps the same speed the entire time!
