    He has a pretty good record. He beat ray standing up and was outweighed.

    Seung Hwan Bang vs. Jorge Masvidal

    While some of the matchmaking on this card is worthy of critique, this fight is most certainly not.

    Bang, Deep's former lightweight champ, is an underrated, relatively anonymous talent who is one of the better positive examples of WVR's inviting foreign policy. While he didn't thrill in his big-fight debut against Takanori Gomi in August, the South Korean slugger showed off his grit and gameness against one of the sport's most talented fighters in a close, competitive fight.

    The hyper-rugged Masvidal, looking to atone from the incompetent stoppage that gave him a loss to Rodrigo Damm in June, ran roughshod over former IFL lightweight champ Ryan Schultz in September, impressively punching the corn-fed Team Quester out in just under two minutes.

    Both Masvidal and Bang are great punchers with knockout power, and while Bang does prefer to fight on the counter, "Gamebred" should have no qualms about chasing him down to produce an entertaining scrap. The bout figures to come down to whether Masvidal can stay mistake-free, as his length, jab and developing kicking ability should allow him to accumulate volume, control distance and wear down Bang, so long as he can avoid a big counterpunch from the South Korean. Look for Masvidal to earn a fun, well-appointed decision. With this being Gamebred's third trip to Japan, hopefully the ardent strip club aficionado can navigate his way to one of Saitama's seedier establishments to celebrate.

    He has already fought there a couple of times, you could probably find the videos on daily motion or somewhere on the net.
