Firstly, KID Yamamoto eats nails and spits bullets. The man is a savage and has an incredible combination of wrestling, striking and natural athleticism.

I've been pretty impressed with Faber lately, but I don't think that he's realistically ready for the international stage. Yamamoto comes from a serious wrestling pedigree, and, frankly, he's better than Faber at everything Faber does best.

I agree with kds, I don't see any way that Faber can win this fight. Standing up, KID would pound his face in, and on the ground, KID would pound his face in. Seems like a pretty simple solution to me.

Something went on after the first round and it really caused a lot of momentum to drop, I don't remember exactly what it was but it took FOREVER for them to get back to fighting.
it was stupid ref positioning since they had to move it back to the middle cause they were almost out of the ring

Yea that's right, what a buzzkill that was. Really lost a lot of momentum after that and he didn't seem like he could get back into the groove. I liked the fight because he was doing really good before that ref bullshit, and it's now confirmed that he is almost impossible to submit. That's good to know. His standup didn't look great in this fight but we know it's there. Probably just ring rust.


I would be surprised and plagued with a permanent smile if Kid vs Gomi were to happen. I would be surprised because Kid just said not too long ago that he doesn't want to fight at 155 anymore. I'm sure the money says otherwise but I dunno. Gomi is best at 160 and yes he CAN make 155 contrary to what a lot of people say...it would be a ****in epic fight, one for the ages.
