LOL funniest thread of the month.

I like Yoshida and will be supporting him but I think the big Johnson will turkey slap KO him.

I'm guessing Yoshida likes the Big Johnson every which way but loose.

Anyway, If Yoshida gets a takedown... he could submit AJ right after but it is a big IF about Rumble letting him get a takedown since Rumble's wrestling is pretty good. Yoshida will most likely get KO'd again.

I think Johnson will rumble right through him. I think Yoshida is going to be gunshy hard after being KO'd hes going to be too cautios and unagressive and just get pumpled quickly. If he does get him down Johnsons sub defence is pretty good. Burns is decent on the ground and he couldnt get him with anything. He got subbed by Clementi but he took fight under a weeks notice and didnt even make weight and it screwed his cardio. I think Johnson will be too strong for yoshida to toss him down.

My main criticism of Johnson is that i dont think he has very good cardio. I havent watched either of his fights with Burns in awhile, but i remember thinking that he was starting to fade in both of them.

His cardio is normally a little suspect to me but in his interview on Beatdown he admits he started training late for this fight, was not able to train with his knee injury and gained a lot of weight, that makes me think most of his training has went into just getting back in fight shape.

I think he can win at any point in the fight with his striking but to me it sounds like he's coming into this one ill prepared and maybe a little out of focus.

I think he will become a better fighter than Yoshida and could be now but taking all the circumstances into consideration I think Yoshida has a golden opportunity to pull out a win.

Im picking Rumble but if this goes longer than halfway into the second round I think he will lose.

Yoshida fully understands the only way he can overwhelm Big Johnson is by a stealth yet devastating straight thrust through Big Johnson's retina up the cornea and out his iris.

If Yoshida avoids standing on front of Johnson and letting him tee off, then he can pull this one out. If he weathers the initial storm Johnson brings and gets a throw or trip, he can work for a submission.

But if he gets hit and starts moving backwards, it'll be the Koscheck KO all over again.

It's gonna be a tough fight, either way.

AJ is a horrible match up for Zenko.
