    filho is the favorite but im still picking chonan...his losses have come because he can't handle guys with one punch KO power...im pretty sure that's why they are matching him up vs filho...see filho vs shoji :mamoru:

    hunt is not at the point where he can handle someone like nog on the ground...it's just not very competitive at all...same goes for Sergei vs Hunt...Crocop vs Hunt needs to happen....and Sergei vs Noguiera....those are competitive

    what happened to ninja vs filho?

    Filho is going to stomp all over Chonnan, give the man a can to get his groove back. Filho is also damn huge for that weight class while chonnan is undersized.

    fedor is a judoka also aswell as a samboka

    I think guys that yosh does well against is strikers who want to stay on their feet. If silva could take down yoshida, then fedor is going to punish him badly.
    I'd be really suprised if yosh made it out of the fight without being tko'd or subbed.

    They should make it a gi match with certain stipulations
    4 five minute rounds:
    1st round judo
    2nd round sanda
    3rd and 4th full mma

    Now that would be cool and interesting, otherwise it just looks like a squash fight to me.

    I agree, I would love to see some sort of grappling/judo fight between these guys.

    An mma fight will be a one sided beat down.

    it's going to be like that for anybody feddy faces because there are VERY few HWs that are well rounded like he is. essentially, because feddy is so dangerous in every situation, he can adapt and take advantage of weaknesses like no other

    yoshida has a kung fu grip, and when in a position of getting submitted, fedor doesn't try to muscle or slip out, he SNAPS himself free. i think that situation would be interesting to watch

    Awesome card. Yoshida is a good match up for Fedor I think. I'm glad Ken's getting another fight. He's going to cream Tank. I wonder how heavy Ken will go in though. I'm thinking he might stay where he is now.
