I was kind of disappointed when Kid lost for some reason. I'm not really a huge fan, but I wanted to see him move on. Kid really took control of the standup, but Warren is freakin strong and got Kid down with relative ease. Kid needs to learn rubber guard or something if he is planning on not doing anything on the ground so he can get it standing quicker. Warren's lay and pray tactics kind of annoyed me on the ground.

Imanari was super dissppointing to me. He kind of turned it on in the second round, but he really didn't do anything. He had no sense of urgency. He had multiple opportunities where Fernandez was kind of standing in the guard and Imanari could have swept for a leg lock but he didn't. It sucks that Imanari is already out.

I was planning on watching the Abel Cullem/Hideo Tokoro fight, but I got sick of watching those fights online. They were such bad quality. By the sound of it I'll have to watch that one though.

Was that Canseco fight comically good for MMA? As terrible as he performed it got DREAM a ton of exposure on ESPN today. I don't know.

Kamikaze is now 5-0. Watch his most recent fight here.

Definitely watch Tokoro/Cullem. It was great in the standup, and it was a great war on the ground.

I'm about to right now. Hopefully there is a better vid up by now. The one I was watching was like 4 pixels I swear.

I'm excited to watch it though. Does anyone remember his fight with Daisuke Nakamura? It was great.

Imanari and Kid are both out, damn featherweight GP lost all its luster for me as these were the only two I really cared that much about.

I agree Jdun I was really impressed by Canseco for a self trained guy to get any offensive on Choi is impressive and I dont understand why people are so down on him, the guy showed balls.

I just hate him because I'm a fan of baseball. But regardless, everything he does now is for money and is a joke.

Ya, I kind of agree. But at least Tokoro is still in there! Just watched the fight. Tokoro is very dangerous and wild but entertaining, which is all that matters to the Japanese. He comically has 16 losses, but he's fighting in the tournament b/c he pushes the pace and takes risks.

As for the Canseco appraisal, let's be honest, he's fighting Hong Man Choi. I don't know why people are congratulating him. Anyone can go a minute with Hong Man Choi by simply moving around the ring and throwing side kicks from a mile away. He looked like he was going to drop after every shot Choi landed. Then he just gave up because he hurt his knee. lol. There really is no room for calling that a respectable performance. I mean it's not Canseco's fault. He isn't a fighter, he was just there to entertain, which he did, it's just dumb that people are saying he did a good job. Nothing he did in the ring was good.

Kamikaze is now 5-0. Watch his most recent fight here.

wow, I just watched this now, Canseco is such a baby, I think there are even plenty of people on this board who could beat Choi. The videos and jap graphics that are on this event are awesome. This super hulk tournament is going to get them lots of press possibly in the US from that Canseco fight, I wish howard stern was on this week I was waiting for them to mention it.

That's what it seemed like to me. It seemed like he didn't have that killer instinct anymore but then again, he hasn't fought in a while.
