hmmm should be a good fight kid has this in the bag though. JB has a great ground game though so not to take anything from him i don't think he is ready for kid.

Sounds like a gimme fight to Kid although I've never heard of Joseph Benavidez before so I don't really know how good he is.

I'm kinda suprised DREAM couldn't find a bigger name fighter for Kid, but I guess if the fight is at 35, they don't really have much competition to choose from.

Lotus, you sound like you've seen Benavidez..., how do you see the fight playing out?

Lotus 06-03-2008 12:58 AM

never seen but i have heard of him he's got good subs and a decent stand up game but he will be completely overwhelmed in this fight, just not ready for someone like kid.

Makes me mad we have to wait till the end of July, but never the less happy Kid gets to whip some ass. I don't think this fight will go to the ground. I think Kid will want to throw with JB and each time that JB wants to go the ground Kid can stop him from taking him down. Kids got too much to get beat by this guy.

This will be Kids first fight at 35, right?

How much did he weigh when he fought Rani Yahya?

Just thinking, since DREAM has Kid, how cool would it be if they had some sort of 145 GP? Bring in Hioki, Pato, Tamura, Sato, Lion, Imanari and Mishima and have them go all out. Of course, Kid would be in the GP, too.

But then again, I'm the king of wishful thinking.

I think the fight with Yahya was at 143 or 145.

I don't really know why this is being seen as a serious fight. I think KID will take this by sprawl and brawl. He's got the better striking of the two guys, and he's got by far the better wrestling, so I don't think that this guy is going to get this to the ground (where it looks like he wants it).

KID'll take this in round one, too.

I like this idea, though I'm not sure if Imanari is still under contract with Cage Rage, though I think that he's not.
