You're right, and it is a longshot, but remember... if it hits the ground, and almost all fights do, he has a very big chance to submit his opponents, hell, I could even see some weird standing submissions to be pulled off by him. Not to mention his striking isn't that bad. I can dream, can't I?

I thought Sakuraba said he wasn't fighting in the GP? Kang will win because he is hairyist.

NYBA Champ @ 170!

I've got comcast digital cable. Is there an HD-Net channel there? Sorry, but I don't watch much tv.

Man, this card is awesome. The middleweight tourney is a lot tougher than I thought it was going to be since Trigg and Akiyama dropped out and the Aoki/JZ fight is main event material on any card. I have JZ. He is too big and strong, and his wrestling is too good and his BJJ is good enough to not get subbed by Aoki.

Since there are only 14 fighters do you think they are giving a first round bye to Akiyama or Trigg like they did for Uno in the LWGP?



Gonzaga vs dos Santos - UFC on VS
Vera vs Jones - UFC on VS
Bibs vs Hansen - Dream 13
GSP vs Hardy - UFC 112
Gomi vs Florian - UFN 21
