By far the biggest fight—on paper—of the night. This could be an epic battle between the two big guys.
Both of them punch heavily.
Both are capable of knocking each other out.
So, it's a case of who hits harder first?
Carwin is notorious for his early finishes, though we have seen if it goes past the first or second round, he's puffed out. Let's hope he's been training for stamina in order to keep his high pace throughout the entire fight (if it ever makes the third round).
Dos Santos, meanwhile, boasts an impressive catalogue of victories over Roy Nelson, Stefan Struve and Mirko Filipovic.
Both Dos Santos and Carwin are hungry for a title shot, and both know how to get there. I can see their game plans being very similar, the fight staying predominantly upright.
Don't be surprised if we see Dos Santos go for the takedown every now and then—to take the lottery out of the punching game. Personally, I think Carwin hits harder, but it's on swings and roundabouts, really.
On the whole, I would recommend not looking into your nachos, not going to grab another beer or otherwise removing your eyes from the television when this fight is on. Both of these mammoths mean business and will want to end the fight quickly.
I think Carwin might pull it off with a shower of devastating fists to the face of Santos.
