2 romanians in the FINAL 16!!
1.Just saw that Raul Catinas is in there against Arlovski.
THIS will be the biggest news of that night!
I'm calling it right now: Catinas will T(KO) Arlovski!
And i'm not just saying this because he's romanian like i am.
This kid is only 22 yrs old, is strong as a bull and hits very very hard. He has 3 losses in his young K-1 career, but he has evolved so much in the last 2 years.
His most notale wins are against Carter Williams (TKO) and Stefan Leko (TKO). Plus he has a decision against Poturak.
Arlovski may be the techical fighter, but he had that advantage in all of his last fights. And that didn't help.
When Catinas lands one of his "bombs" on Arlovski's glass chin, AA will fall.
I have no doubt.
And AA doesn't have the power to KO Catinas imo.
2. Second romanian, Daniel Ghita will have a tough fight against Zimmerman. I think it's the toughest fight to call, on paper. Zimmerman has very goos hands and Ghita has incredible leg kicks, especially low-kicks. Lsst year, he lost a decision to Schilt in the Final 16.
Hope he goes to Final 8 this time.
Other things: sux that Hari and Remy won't take part.
That's life. Move on.
And, my picks for this card:
v. Hesdy Gerges
v. Peter Aerts
v. Daniel Ghita
v. Freddy Kemayo
Ray Sefo v. Tyrone Spong
Andrei Arlovski v. Raul Catinas
v. Ben Edwards
v. Jerome Le Banner
