"That is a banger of a fight," Fili said. "Moraes is obviously tough and has beaten a lot of guys, but Sandhagen is one of my favourite people to watch fight right now in MMA. Sandhagen's style is one of my favorites to watch. And he's a great dude too, so I'm going to go with Sandhagen. I think he's a problem for a lot of people, dude. Sandhagen is fucking slick, he's real slick."

"Sandhagen. I like the movement," Krause added. "Moraes is good, he is tough. This fight wouldn't surprise me if it went either way. I like Sandhagen's movement and striking. I think he is the more diverse striker. I'll go Sandhagen."
