Lol Rua KO/TKO  R1 Skelli? That's got to be a heart pick, surely!

You know, I'll probably always root for shogun. I'm always pulling for the old guard. But in all honestly he may be the oldest 36 YO in the world, and it took him three rounds to finish Villante who has the head movement and slipping ability of a bronze statue. He's probably going to get KO'ed here within the opening moments of the first.

Oezdemir by KO/TKO within about 1.25 of R1. And I'll hate seeing it.
