Whats going to be the deal with spoilers for this? Anyways I'm going to discuss what I saw, how to tell them apart and who I think could win. If you don't want to be spoiled for the episode...why are you in this thread? But just stop reading now.
1) Rony "Jason" Mariano Bezerra
Guys who I think could win
2) Godofredo "Pepey" de Oliveira
3) Hugo "Wolverine" Viana
4) Rodrigo Damm
5) Wagner "Galeto" Campos
6) Anistavio "Gasparzinho" Medeiros
7) John "Macapa" Teixeira
8) Marcos Vinicius "Vina" Borges
, seems like the only FW that's really well rounded I expect him to be the first pick because I think the talent disparity is wide in this division.
, the award for the loudest strikes go to Vina who sounded like Jose Aldo but looked like Kenny Florian. I really like his chances against these guys.
Guys who could make the finals
, was the giant FW who was able to finish his guy with a triangle.
, got knocked down in his fight, looks like he has holes in his standup, but I believe he's the biggest of the FW's.
, looked fast and wild, I think with proper coaching he could be this seasons winner. I liked what I saw from his cardio, striking, and wrestling.
Could go either way
, the most distinctive of the group, he has solid skills but I wonder what's going to happen when he faces taller fighters who can use their range to defeat him.
Damm, he's suppossed to be a front runner but his standup looked pretty bad, he won that fight on a mistake from the other guy.
not making it past the first round.
What we saw wasn't impressive, but his standup looked good and his posture lets me believe that's he's difficult to get to the ground. He might be the type of guuy who outpoints the better Rodrigo or Wolverine.
1) Francisco "Massaranduba" Drinaldo
2) Cezar "Mutante" Ferreira
3) Daniel Sarafian
4) Sergio "Serginho" Moraes
5) Thiago "Bodao" de Oliveira Perpetuo
6) Delson "Pe De Chumbo" Heleno
7) Renee Forte
8) Leonardo "Macarrao" Mafra Teixeira
The Middleweights looked more impressive and were easier to tell apart.
Guys who I think can win.
, had a 14 second fight and just walked through his opponent, he seems like the top striker at that weight class.
2. Pe De Chumbo
, was the black brazilian and the only one who really impressed me with his wrestling, he looked like he's a 205 who cut down to 185.
3. Daniel Sarafian
, he's built like a Brazlian Ryan Bader, showed very good sub defense, wrestling and hands, I think he's someone to watch.
Could be finalists.
4. "Serginho" Moraes
, was locked in a double leg lock. He has a very calm personality which I enjoy and think that translates to the cage.
5. Thiago Bodao
was the guy with cancer, he's a wrestler and a GNP guy but I believe he's undersized and he might be the weakest of this batch.
I don't think will make the finals or win or win a fight.
seemed like the weakest, he broke the rules, his legs were kicked out from under him, he has a good chin but I think he'll get KO'd.
7. Big Teixeira
I'd rank him higher but he took so much damage in his fight and he was taken down often by a guy who didn't look like he was much of a wrestler.
8. Renee Forte
I thought he lost his fight, looks like he's going to be fed to one of the bigger guy in this group.
