    pretty interesting fight though...nakamura is a great gatekeeper type fighter...i think ryoto should be tested at a little higher of a level...i expect him to win

    I think they are hoping for a knock-out with Omigawa

    also I find it funny that Nak is in the UFC, his pull is in Japan, this fight could be extremely exciting or a 15 minute stall fest, we'll have to wait and see

    ryoto needs more exposure...i cant remember any of his fights being aired...i think they are preparing him for a title shot very soon

    his fight against Heath was supposed to be aired but aside from the knees in round 3 by Machida it was very slow, so because it was a tape delay that they had the chance to change their minds

    also he should drop to 185 like others said, he is a small guy...but it is kind of cool to see a smaller yet more skilled guy take on bigger opponents

    i doubt it...even if they had a good possibility of a TV deal over there i think they would have at least saved guys like Nakamura and Omigawa for PRIDE...PRIDe is dead

    I'm talking about a tv-deal for the UFC :coolugh:

    all I really want is for them to do Pride-esque pre-fight promo videos for the Japanese (or US, but I doubt it) broadcast so that I can download them later
