Probably just a day or two on this event. Lots of events being covered by different editors around the world, so it varies a little bit.

Yeah this was very entertaining card! 10 finishes out of 14 fights! Fun stuff! And 3 decisions were in 3 straight fights! Very hard to predict winners for me in these events.. maybe I’ll get better after following it closer now, but ****, all of their names sound the same so it’s hard to remember from one event to the next who was good!!

If you only watch the UFC then watching Pancrase can be a little shocking. Obviously, the competition level is not as high, as I learned first hand lol

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.
