Shinya Aoki vs. Katsuhiko Nagata - LW GP Quarter Final
Shinya Aoki - Submission - 1st Round

Gegard Mousasi vs. Dong Sik Yoon - MW GP Quarter Final
Gegard Mousasi - (T)KO - 2nd Round

Zelg Galesic vs. Taiei Kin - MW GP Quarter Final
Zelg Galesic - (T)KO - 1st Round

"Jacare" De Souza vs. "Mayhem" Miller - MW GP Quarter Final
Jacare - Submission - 1st Round

Kazushi Sakuraba vs. Melvin Manhoef - MW GP Quarter Final
Melvin Manhoef - KO - 1st Round

Darren Uyenoyama vs. Hideo Tokoro - Featherweight Fight
Hideo Tokoro - Submission - 1st Round

Alistair Overeem vs. Lee Tae Hyun - Heavyweight Fight
Alistair Overeem - (T)KO - 1st Round

"Cacareco" Ferreira vs. Alavutdin Gadzhiyev - Middleweight
Cacareco - Submission - 1st Round

KO of the night = Melvin Manhoef
Sub of the night = Shinya Aoki
Fight of the night = Jacare vs. Mayhem


I think Shinya Aoki beats Nagata all day, I think he's gonna do an insane sub which is why i've given him sub of the night.

Mousasi vs. Dong is a tough one to call, my heart with with Dong but Mousasi does look class recently, then again so has Dong with his Dongbars over game opponents, I do think Mousasi manages to avoid a Dongbar though and gets the stoppage in the 2nd round.

Zelg Galesic vs. Taiei Kin is a standup fight, they have actually only just fought Galesic winning by a TKO, which was actually a cut early on. Kin hadn't thrown anything yet in that fight, and I expect Galesic to TKO him in the 1st.

Mayhem vs. Jacare is the toughest fight to pick on the card for me, I do believe that Jacare is in a different world on the ground which is why I expect him to sub Miller, but who knows maybe Miller can knock him down and finish up, I think Jacare's stand up is to the point where he can avoid just enough damage before getting the takedown and winning this fight. The guys coming over from sub grappling, guys like Maia, Jacare, Roger Gracie, Werdum recently over Vera, Vera was just no match at all for Werdum on the ground, none what so ever. These guys are so elite and that much better when it comes to the ground game. Jacare avoids strikes, gets the takedown and wins.

Manhoef vs. Saku is a very sad fight, one which i'm not even sure I want to watch, I obviously will end up doing so but I really don't want to see it. Jacare vs. Saku would of much rather appealed to me and Mayhem vs. Manhoef is a nice fight. At least with a Jacare Saku fight Saku wouldn't get KTFO. There is a big chance of KTFO in this fight. Saku looked nothing in his last fight with someone making his debut in MMA. I would love for Sakuraba to get this fight to the ground and work his old magic, but I just don't think he can take it there. Manhoef gets KO of the night.

I haven't any of Uyenoyama, he was on the undercard of Shamrock vs. Cung Le but I didn't watch it. Tokoro is a nice addition to the DREAM featherweight division, I'm hoping they do a tourney for this division after the MW and LW's have finished. I have Tokoro by decision, but I can easily see a sub, actually gonna change it to sub now, sub in the 1st round. Looking forward to seeing Tokoro.

Alistair Overeem should damage Lee Tae Hyun.

And for this last one, I have Cacareco who is a great sub grappler by sub, it was funny in Gadzhiyev's last fight where he actually knocked Hikaru Satu (I think thats his name, or Sato) knocked him out while he was mounted. I don't think he'll manage to do that against Cacareco who will finish it if he gets to a position like that.

Your thoughts/predictions please.

Then Sakuraba will die this weekend, maybe they will DQ Melvin for killing Sakuraba.

Sakuraba can do it, so long as he doesn't get Ko'd on the feet and keeps some distance.
One thing is for sure, Manhoef is ****ed if it hits the ground.

That's pretty true, Saku does still have some ground game left in him, he can either ride out the decision, or sub Melvin in the late 1st.
