The popular pick (through my own observations) has been Schaub, and with good reason. Rothwell has looked like a shell of his former self since joining the UFC and looked sluggish even in his only UFC win.
Meanwhile, Schaub made a splash with his introduction to UFC fans by competing on The Ultimate Fighter, where The Grudge Training Center product made it all the way to the finals before being KO’d by Roy Nelson.
As with any fight, there are certain strategies each fighter must follow on the path to victory. If Schaub wishes for his hand to be raised in Atlanta, completing these tasks will be paramount.
