Prediction Comments

Motoya vs. Takizawa
Yuki Motoya, SUB, R1
Not convinced Takizawa can dance his way around Motoya. An early sub for the vet.

Ougikubo vs. Otsuka
Hiromasa Ougikubo, DEC
Has the potential to be a serious borefest. Ougikubo takes a comfortable win home and advances to the next round.

Inoue vs. Hokamura
Naoki Inoue, SUB, R1
Inoue will continue his rampage through this tournament with another convincing, early finish. Kintaro will engage wildly from the get-go and end up getting his back taken.

Asakura vs. Yoshihiro Yamaniha
Kai Asakura, DEC
I really think this will be more competitive than people expect. Hiro is fairly durable and, while he loves to strike, I imagine seeing Kleber beat Mikiru might make him want to grapple enough to avoid getting finished. A tough out for Kai.

Hamasaki vs. Fujino
Ayaka Hamasaki, TKO, R2
Ayaka has fallen in love with striking and Fujino has heaps of scar tissue. Can see a doctor stoppage in this one.

Takeda vs. Yachi
Koji Takeda, DEC
Takeda's rarely in a dull fight and I can see him adding another JMMA champ to his growing resume.

Sasaki vs. Horie
Ulka Sasaki, DEC
This fight will be the best of the night, without a doubt. Sasaki edges it.

Ota vs. Kubo
Shinobu Ota, SUB, R1
Way more exciting than it should be! An MMA debut for Kubo against 0-1-0 Olympic silver medallist in Ota. Definitely favour the grappler in this one.

Maruyama vs. Suzuki
Shoji Maruyama, DEC
Maruyama looks good here as the underdog. Suzuki is still pretty raw.

Hamasaki vs. Fujino II
Ayaka Hamasaki, DEC
Coin toss, these are two legends of atomweight! What a fight!

Sasaki vs. Horie
Ulka Sasaki, DEC
Two of the most exciting fighters I can name, this is going to be an absoulte war

Ota vs. Kubo
Shinobu Ota, TKO, R1
Olympic wrestler vs retired Kickboxer really only has one outcome: smesh.

Motoya deadass tried to leave the ring. Great performance from Takizawa.
