When I first saw this I thought that Buakaw would beat Masato, but my gut is really pulling towards Masato.

Big time. I really am not liking the rules change. I think that it limits certain styles too much and in turn takes some of the luster out of winning the tourney. I mean, I want to see the best striker win. Not the guy that was the best as long as someone else couldn't use his whole arsenal. I just think that it leaves me with a certain amount of doubt and what-ifs after its all said and done. I hate having what-ifs floating around in my head.

Back on topic though, I'm picking Souwer to take it. I think his road is going to be easier which means he will be less banged up going into the final. Stevelmans seems like a fluffer fight to me so Andy should breeze through that one, seems to be the easiest first round in the tourney. Kyshenko is tough but I see Souwer taking that fight too. In the final Masato is gonna come in more beat up from his fights and I just have a gut feeling that Souwer is gonna take him.

I want Masato to win even though I don't think he will and I will actually be rooting for Kyshenko as my underdog. It would be awesome to see him smoke Souwer and go on to the finals.

Those new rules are bs. They pretty much screw the MT guys out of a big part of their arsenal. How can you only let someone throw one knee while having the plum clinch? That's so dumb. I don't know if these rules were used before but if they weren't there are going to be a ton of penalties as guys forget about only being able to throw one knee and stuff.

They are newer rules, they have fought with them since they have been in place. Buakaw is the main reason for the rules.

Those rules are stupid.

What happened with Baukaw to make them change them?

In all honesty, he beat Masato and Masato is the face of Max.

Because of these rules I would rather see Buakaw vs. Yod in a muay thai fight instead of in Max.
