O'Brien is a great dark horse to me who has an excellent chance of coming out of this the winner. O'Brien is a good wrestler who had an insane amount of hype going into his fight with Arlovski but lets be honest his only losses are to Andrei Arlovski (before Fedor stole his soul, top HW at the time), Cain Velasquez (Jake is a wrestler, Cain a better one naturaly bigger guy) and to Jon Jones who again was a better wrestler. O'Brien beat Heath Herring and that is no easy task. Thing is he is matched up with a guy who showed his TD defense is not that good. Jake could easily hold Mousasi down and if Manhouf makes it to the finals that will be an easy win for Jake.

IMO my money is on Jake taking the whole thing.

Talking O'Brien

Yeah Mousasi had better bring his A-game or else he is going to get handled like he was against King Mo!

It isn't really like it is fun hanging out on the ground with Gegard for an entire fight he has shit TDD but he doesn't suck on the ground.

I'm more worried about Mousasi's Cardio here.. If he doesn't gas again he should win this one.

I don't know why but the way you describe it as "it isn't really like it is fun" made me laugh.

I would like to add that if this was Stateside and not in Japan I would have very little doubt O'Brian would come out on top. Its only because its in Japan that I am not positive.

Sounds like a really good event. I haven't watched a good Japanese event in years (just streamed individual fights months after the event). I might tune in for this.

Gryphonjapan said a Korean fighter, but his English isn't that great, so who knows.
