Eddie won't want to stand. I expect a similar approach than he used against Pettis. Dos Anjos should be able to out grapple him. This my 80% reasoning.
Eddie's smoking gun is his power vs. RDA's chin which is good but not god-tier. That's pretty much his best hope to pull it off. I do think it will go deep due to how tough Eddie is and how his grappling has improved over the last few years. RDA is more position than submission anyway. Leg kicks will be key for RDA to slow Eddie down.
I think Eddie is just gonna keep pressing RDA on the cage as much as possible. He's gonna get smoked on the outside and he knows it.
It's going to be tough to keep the fight in that range. RDA is a better striker and he times his takedowns well. I see Eddie getting taken down a lot of he rushes forward. He's damned if he does, damned if he doesn't.Don't disagree. I think Eddie will try to keep it at boxing or clinch range and out of kick range. It's either all in or all out for him. There can't be any in between.
