For the first time, I will be rooting for Koz..

I can't put my finger on it, but there is something about Anthony that I can't get behind...

Koz, while I NEVER .. liked Josh "He is gonna out wrestle ME" Koschek.. his past few fights I have seen him more mature and "respectful".. Not throwing that last punch a few fights ago did a lot for me.. and the way he acted afterwards...

Will Koz ever break into my "favorite fighters" list...doubtful, but if he does, it's "Koz" of the way he has been acting lately.

Don't really like either guy but Rumble will be on his back most of the fight. Kos by UD.

I agree with the second part of your post .. but just curious, how do you see Kos winning? Not saying he can't, but i think rumble is a better striker and good wrestler who may be too big for kos to take down and gnp ...

I could see Kos getting KOed simply becaues he thinks his striking has improved enough to allow him to hang with Rumble. I wouldn't be shocked if he tried to bang with Johnson & got lit up.

His greatly improved boxing, and I do belive that he is the better wrestler.

Kos will defend himself until he gets the take down or pushed rumble onto the cage.

Kos is the vet. I don't like think but he will win this fight.

This fight is a battle of opposites. A great wrestler with improving boxing facing off against a great boxer with improving wrestling. The dangers to each fighter are these: a) is Kos foolish enough to think his boxing has improved enough to throw hands with Anthony, & b) is Rumble's TD def. strong enough to stymie Kos long henough to put him to sleep.

While I'm not going really be rooting for either guy, it will be an interesting match-up that I'll prolly enjoy from a technical stand-point.
