Cornelius is the young gun in this fight, as his rise started with a seven submission performance at the BJJ Worlds in 2012 as a purple belt. Magalhaes is a veteran who earned his black belt almost 10 years ago with an impressive 10 submission performance as a brown belt, and he has gone on to compete in several disciplines, including MMA. He owns several wins by flying arm bar (including one over UFC champion Chris Weidman), which at his size is impressive. The way the books have it, the most likely outcome is a draw in their 20 minute encounter at (-200). The two submission aces will be looking to finish, with the numbers showing Cornelius at (+160) and Magalhaes at (+140).
The match between Rafael Mendes and Clark Gracie has similar odds, with the draw sitting at (-160). Mendes is the slight favorite at (+110) and Gracie gets (+160) at the books. The Gracie name is still very seriously regarded in grappling circles, but it also does not hold the gravitas it did 15 years ago and being a Gracie is not a recipe for sure success in 2014. With that said, Clark both has a lot to prove and deserves credit for coming out to compete.
