Awesome, awesome, awesome card, with freakin' JZ vs Aoki being the main attraction for me. I'm hoping Aoki subs JZ, but man, JZ will probably kill Shinya.

Buscape's my wild card pick to win this thing. Here's hoping he does.

Kawajiri & JZ have the best shots, though. Both guys are well-rounded, both guys keep going & going.

For his first MMA fight, I thought Marcelo Garcia looked pretty good. Sure, he lost, but he showed that he could be something in MMA. I'm looking forward to see him in his second MMA fight.

I think Marcelo will do pretty well. I know everyone always talks about how grapplers aren't always succesful in MMA but in fact most are.

Werdum has become a top 10 HW
Jacare is one of the MW divisons best prospects
Maia is one of the UFC's best MW prospects
Shaolin is a top 10 LW

I mean even Pe de Pano was 2-2 in the UFC and one of his losses was questionable at best.

True. I wish Cruz would get back into the UFC or somewhere relevant. The guy is talented, and Nog vs Cruz or Werdum vs Cruz would be freakin' fun.

We can include Shinya Aoki in the grappler category. Great, great, great fighter, my number 1 P4P. But, if JZ beats him and wins the LW GP, then he's number 1.

Aoki vs. JZ is a top FOTN candidate for sure. Why does everyone doubt Aoki? He's my number 1 pick to win the whole tournament.

People are doubting Aoki because his takedowns aren't very good and JZ is the best LW in the world. Also on the ground it'll take some work to sub JZ who does have a submission win over a ground wizard in Rani Yahya.

Funny thing about Cruz is he's a solid fighter but guys just seem to want to kick him in the face on the ground.

I mean Arlovski did it and then Fejiao did it. Maybe that's why Cruz hasn't fought in awhile he got tired of getting kicked in the face on the ground.
