Ah well, I love Shinya and I'm glad he won. He's still my number 1 P4P.

Jung vs JZ would be fun.
I'm with you on Jung vs JZ.

I actually called Aoki to win this fight too.

I'm still very sad that Kang lost.

Last thought, imagine if Yoon Dong Sik actually won.. how would that affect his ranking? LOL

Yoshihiro Akiyama (Choo Sung Hoon)
Denis "The Super Korean" Kang
Yoon Dong Sik
Dong Hyun "Stun Gun" Kim
Bu Kyung Jung
Hong Man "The Techno Goliath" Choi

I actually think Dong's going to win this tournament, now that Kang's out. Dong should be ranked number 1 in all of our hearts.

Dong & Jung are 2 badass dudes.

Pound 4 pound, baby.

Beating JZ solidifies him as my number 1, as he has solid wins in 2 different weight classes.

Cool. Woah...it was Aoki by decision...I missed that. Last thing I expected.
How'd Saku look(despite fighting a can)?
w00t Tamura and Saku.....I'm so happy.

Sakuraba could win this whole thing, seriously. He could beat Souza, Dong or Mousasi. Yes, his ground skills are that good(Yup, even Souza IMO).

Fedor>ALL posted all the videos in a thread. Also Aoki looked amazing on the ground. JZ who has some great GnP just couldn't hit him.

The Negation I just read your edit and no. Saku can't beat Jacare on the ground. To be honest not a man in the world not named Roger Gracie will beat Jacare on the ground right now. He has adapted well to strikes and his submission game is the best in the world ATM.

Saku and Dong have a chance of winning this tourny if somehow Jacare loses to someone who is a good striker before he faces them but other than that neither of them stand a chance in hell against Jacare.

Saku kinda looked like shit. I mean when he got Nakahara down he finished him pretty quick but he took terrible shots and he wanted no part of the stand up. Also there was a questionable restart early in the fight in Saku's favor.

Saku didn't look to great, granted he physically probably should stop fighting lol
I think Mousasi has a pretty decent chance in this. He has to beat 2 old guys, and possibly the dong. If he can beat Jacare I think he could win it.
I'm going with either Jacare as GP winner or Mousasi.
That will be weird if like Saku won hahaha

edit: Forgot about the other 2 fighters, I think Melvin stands a great chance as well.

I'm actually so disappointed Kang lost that fight, I was really looking forward to him getting to the finals and fighting Jacare, this sucks hard.

Oh well, got to go to my 2nd favourite in the GP now.

WAR JACARE!
