Finally after chasing after Edgar and then Guida, Gray has someone who will come straight at him and fight. Will be interesting to see if Joe can deal with his power. Gonna be a straight up strength vs technique matchup. Excited!

Very tough fight to call. I dont think Gray could LNP his way to a decision with out getting sub'd...But I also don't think Joe has the chin speed or combo's Frankie does..
I guess I have Maynard by KO/TKO.

Yikes! I'm not too sure J.Lau can pull this one off, but I certainly hope so.

IMO, kind of a weird matchup. Rankings-wise, I have Gray a good jaunt ahead of Lauzon and while I'm a pretty big JLau fan, I don't like this matchup for him.
I'd have slightly preferred Gray/Miller II and have Nurmagomedov, Bocek, Wiman, dos Anjos or a dropping down Diego go up against Lauzon, to give him one more fight a little lower than Gray at this juncture.
I think this looks alot like Gray/Florian and think that Gray is better at what he does.
I like Lauzon but this is not a good fight for him. Gray takes it rd 1 tko
Joe has a chance, but Gray by (t)ko is the most likely outcome.

Jlau and Gray are two of my favorite LWs so I'm both pumped to see this fight and nervous that one of them has to lose. But I have to go with Gray - he's powerful, an extremely good wrestler, and seems to finally be getting comfortable standing. TKO in the 1st or 2nd.
That said, there's also the chance that it turns into two gassed fighters in the 3rd...
