I love how so many people think AO has a chance vs JDS. So let me get this straight. AO goes from being a crappy 205er, to a much larger man who reinvents his nickname by demolishing cans overseas for awhile before coming to Strikeforce and looking like a slightly above average guy...all while barely fighting in Strikeforce... goes back overseas and bull rushes everybody in K1, comes back to the US and puts on his best performance against a former professional wrestler who just had his second major surgery to prevent a potentially FATAL illness, and NOW people think he has what it takes to be the best HW in the world?
Did everyone forget about his chin? That's the only thing that didn't get bigger or stronger, and unfortunately for him its the thing that JDS is going to touch (more like, batter) very early and often. And when he does, nite nite AO. I predict JDS stops him in under 2 minutes.
AO is NOT the better striker. I don't give a shit about his K1 success. His only advantage is reach, and JDS I believe is technically more sound than AO and he will prove it by closing the distance while taking no damage and delivering knockout strikes of his own.
