Jacare is amazing and is going to win the MW GP.
I think Alvarez is going to take the LW GP and I agree with you and said before the tournament even started that Jacare will take the MW GP.

Aoki is very overrated imho. Sure, his submissions are amazing, but his wrestling and striking suck. I will admit though that he puts everything together well.

Well it seems to work for him doesn't it, and he dominated JZ Calvan, who is a very well rounded fighter.

I didn't even think Tamura was that impressive against Funaki. I think Saku would end up getting Tamura down and subbing him.

I thought Tamura looked pretty good against Funaki. He pretty much killed him dead, even showed pity.

Tamura's sub defense is too good. The Saku of old would sub Tamura. But, current Saku would be whomped.

Jacare will most definetly win.

I don't think Alvarez will win. He'll beat Kawajiri and make it to the finals but Aoki is so good at grappling that he'll end up submitting him. Aoki's wrestling and striking isnt the greatest but it isnt the worst ever. He did beat JZ. He finds a way to make it work for him and he's successful because of it and that's all that matters. Plus he rocks the sweet pants he wears so how can you not like him?

I thought he was getting outstruck before he got that clinch. And when he tripped Funaki his head came back straight on the mat, not sure if it was because of the punches he took or what, but it was over when he hit the ground.

Anyway, this fight is about as likely to happen as Rickson and Saku. Which is the onlyother fight I thnk Saku should be involved in at this stage.

I got Jacare and Alvarez.

I think Jacare will own Mousasi, Galesic and Manhoef who are all strikers and Jacare has very good takedowns.

And I think Alvarez stand up and wrestling will be to much for Kawajiri, Aoki or Uno.

Alvarez has really good stand up his only trouble in the stand up has been against Nick Thompson who is way to tall for Eddie. And against Dida who is so powerful it's scary. No one in this GP can stand with him.

100% agree.

Jacare looked good against Miller, who is a lot more experienced and a well rounded fighter.

Alvarez's striking REALLY impressed me against Hansen and his wrestling is real nice too. If he sticks to a solid gameplan he should be able to beat the rest of the contenders in the LW GP.

@mj:
I just don't think Aoki will be able to get Alvarez down. If Alvarez uses his superior wrestling to keep the fight standing, I think he has a shot at KOing Aoki.

I don't like him because he isn't well rounded at all and people overhype the guy tremendously.

@Sham:

His win over JZ wasn't very dominant, but I guess we can have different definitions. And other than that, he has like 3 decent wins under his belt, yet people rank him #1-3 P4P in the world.

I love Aoki but everyone knows Aoki is far from being well rounded.

With that said, he's going to win the GP regardless.
