Prediction: Jubli didn’t have to fight in the quarterfinals as his opponent missed weight. Pyo in his fight won in just thirty seconds. I’ve been really impressed with the wrestling and grappling of Jubli. With that said, Jubli is beating objectively terrible fighters.

Pyo may not be UFC level but he’s at least been in the cage with some solid fighters. Pyo is mainly a wrestler/grappler so he’s going to give Jubli the fight he wants. This may be completely wrong but I’ll side with Jubli in this fight. Between the two wrestlers/grapplers, I’ve been more impressed with Jubli. Jubli is also the bigger guy so if his wrestling is as legit as the tape shows he should out-muscle Pyo.

It all just depends on whether or not Jubli is as good as expected, what with the guys he’s been fighting. Pyo could very well expose Jubli on the feet. Jubli’s stand-up is very questionable but I think he could initiate a close-quarters fight mainly. The pick is Jubli for the upset.
