Waldbuger (13-5) trains out of Grappler's Lair in Temple, Texas. He won the Shark Fights Welterweight belt in May 2009 defeating Shannon Ritch (45-71) and then defending the belt by defeating WEC, IFL, MFC, and Strikeforce veteran Pat Healy. Waldbuger is currently a purple belt under John Moore. Waldbuger is just content with pulling guard and submitting his opponents. His stand-up is elementary and does not press the action. He is currently engaged to Moore's daughter.
Mitchell (11-0) fights out of David Terrell's gym in Santa Rosa, California. Mitchell also trains with the Cesar Gracie Fight Team. Mitchell holds the Caged Combat and Tachi Palace Welterweight belts. Mitchell uses his striking to set up his takedowns most times. He often press the action, working for takedown relentlessly. He is a solid wrestler and has good control when onto of his opponents. His parents are hippie world travelers. Mitchell has never won by TKO.
Waldbuger is to young and inexperienced to defeat Mitchell. Mitchell utilizes his wrestling much better than Waldburger. Waldbuger is a guard pulling Jiu-Jitsu player. There just is no room for those types of fighters in high level MMA. I see Mitchell getting on top and finishing Waldbuger in the third round via submission.
