I predicted Yuta Miyaza to win, because of the high percentage of votes, and he got knocked out in 16 seconds...........
I picked Tatsuya Watanabe, once again, because of the high ratings and he got outwrestled by a guy that was 1-2 going in.
Every person I picked was based on their percentage and not my knowledge.
The lesson that I learned was that, with these regional scenes, just like the UFC, they have the heavy hitters but the bottom really is the bottom and it's hard to pick a fight when one guy is 1-3 and the other is 2-3 so picking can be risky, if you care about your record.
I'm really looking for Cage Warriors 96 next.
