    oh god

    Supposedly this was jens personal pick to fight, i guess he got sick of fighting really good strikers in gomi and sakurai. But is this the right choice, he's fighting a huge lightweight who cuts a serious amount of weight.

    He's a great wrestler with heavy hands who's going to be up against an undersized 155lb'er in the 160 pound weight class. What a stupid fight for jens to pick, he should have gone for maeda or someone his own size. Instead he picked a terrible matchup style wise.

    Kawajiri is going to Crush Jens badly.

    jens needs cans...anyways i dont think he cares too much about winning anymore

    i could see him losing this even if it stays standing...if they were same size i could see jens keeping this on feet the whole time with his takedown defense...but kawajiri will probably muscle him to the ground somehow

    I agree. He just doesn't seem to care.

    there's a kinda depressing interview of him saying how he feels like that he reached a plateau with his game and that he doesn't know how much more he can develop as a fighter :( he sounds like he's easily one of the nicer guys too outside of the ring, and it's kinda a shame. i just hope that he busts his ass and improves like mad

    i'd like to watch him fight Kid :coold:
