Chael will wear him down if Fedor doesn’t get the finish.— Gerald Harris (@GHurricane) October 14, 2018
No doubt in my mind that @ryanbader wins this tournament. I love Fedor, but he gets taken down by Bader and he doesn’t get up. And he can’t get tired and be so reckless. Gonna be fun to watch.— Daniel Cormier (@dc_mma) October 14, 2018
