From what I saw of the Ishida fight, it was great, the dude has a completely renewed game and he's hungry as hell. Buscape should be short work for him hopefully.
I think Kawajiri would have a good chance at taking the Decision against Alvarez, but Alvarez is pretty strong himself, so it'll be a long, grinding match.
Hansen should advance very easily as he looked absolutley incredible last night.
And I agree, JZ has Aoki's number, Shinya didn't look comfortable in there at all.
As for the 8th bracket. I have a strong feeling Gomi's gonna get a bye, I can't see anyone else.
