Horiguchi vs. Asakura
Kyoji Horiguchi, TKO, R2
I just realized, this is indeed a Bantamweight fight. I thought it wasn't because it isn't a world title fight. Kinda strange to me. He's a double promotion Bantamweight champ. Soooooo feed this guy some fresh bodies to destroy, but atleast make it a title fight. Horiguchi is an absolute "Destroyed of Senses" (Shadows Fall is an amazing band tooo)

Mizugaki vs. Kape
Manel Kape, TKO, R2
I just can't take Mizugaki here. His jaw has been tested numerous times and failed him nearly everytime. I mean Dominick "The Decisionator" Cruz KO'd him cold... And I expect his tested and failed chin to give up on him again. It's a tough pill to swallow, knowing your mind, your heart and soul is still in the game, but your body is starting to let you down.

Asakura vs. Zappitella
Kanna Asakura, DEC
Alesha Zappitella HAS TO BE on everyone's top 20 hottest MMA fighters list. So I respect this girl for being willing to **** up that pretty face of hers. But I think she's gonna lose here. Sorry Pretty Girrrl

Ochi vs. Brooks
Jarred Brooks, DEC
Wowzers.. Some Crazy **** here. We knooow, Jarred Brooks is one Tiny, Short ************. But I don't think any full grown man should weigh 116lbs. Unless you're the local homeless meth-head begging to suck yo **** for a quarter. Even then, that's not veryyy healthy either. Noooo not being the local homeless meth-head begging to suck yo **** for a quarter...... I'm talking about weighing 116lbs.

Shimizu vs. Watkins
Ai Shimizu, TKO, R2
Last I remember of Watkins, was her getting KO'd by Lindsay VanZandt. I'd say it's highly likely she gets finished in some manner. Preferably by KO. Watkins was finished in both her losses. Just something to watch out for.

Predictions: 7 of 10 Winners, 1 Perfect, 420 Points   |   Tied for 180th   |   View

Horiguchi vs. Asakura
Kyoji Horiguchi, DEC
Kyoji is the man! In my opinion he is well on his way to becoming Japan's greatest fighter all time. I'm really hoping now that the UFC is back in the Flyweight business they rrdign Kyoji and make a fight with Cejudo. I think that would be an incredible match up. Asakura is no joke tho. He has a significant size and reach advantage and KO power. Catching Horiguchi is tough tho. I doubt he'll be finished tho, I think it'll be a much more competitive than people expect decision win for Kyoji

Hamasaki vs. Boonsorn
Ayaka Hamasaki, DEC
This Boonsorn girl is pretty wicked! She doesn't have much MMA experience but like all these Thais she has many many many Muay Thai fights!!! Oh but all her MMA wins are by submission! I was caught out by her in her last few fights but this time she's up against the best Atomweight in the world in Hamasaki whi has just taken out tge Invicta and DEEP 105ers and So Hee Ham is the fight to be made after this. I'll be really impressed if Boonsorn can pull off the upset here, I won't be surprised tho as Ive seen her upset her last 2 opponents!!

Henry vs. Girdham
Victor Henry, SUB, R1
I like Henry a lot. I've picked him in all his recent fights over in Russia. I think going over to Russia and beating Russians, especially Lavrentyov, says a lot about Henry. He has done the same thing in Japan over Motoya. Another thing is the amount of time Josh Barnett has invested into him says a lot, Barnetts always in his corner travelling the world. So yeah, Henry gets an easy win here, probably by finish. Hopefully he gets signed up by the UFC soon or even Bellator as I think he'd do well, I've got him in my top 30 at 135. I hipe I haven't jinxed the man!!!

Mizugaki vs. Kape
Manel Kape, TKO, R1
Like my man Brad said. Mizugakis chin is long gone! Kape can crack! If, and it's a big IF, Mizugaki can last past a round or so Kape could tire and Mizugaki might manage to grapple his way to a decision win but I'll go with youth and power here. Kape cracks him early for a quick finish

Asakura vs. Zappitella
Kanna Asakura, DEC
This fight, for me, comes down to Asakuras grappling vs Zappitella wrestling. If this fight had taken place before Zappitella losing to Pereira last time out I'd be pretty confident in picking her to outwrestle Asakura, just like Yamamoto did. But Yamamoto is a MUCH better wrestler so the comparison doesn't really fit. Asakura also has a size advantage which makes a difference with grappling. I'm a bit worried by that loss to Alyssa Garcia on Asakuras record! But I'm gonna pick her to get the DEC.

Ochi vs. Brooks
Jarred Brooks, DEC
I dislike Brooks. He comes across as a ****y little prick!!! I'd love nothing more than to see him slam himself on his own head and be unconscious,, AGAIN!!! Haha! That was hilarious! Unfortunately I don't think I'm gonna get the pleasure of watching him get his ass kicked this time as I think Brooks wrestling and, I can't believe I'm saying this about Brooks, his size will be too much. Brooks mist likely grinds out a decision but I'll be more than happy if Ochi catches him and puts him to sleep!

Sone vs. Scoggins
Justin Scoggins, TKO, R1
People are a bit TOO confident in Scoggins here! The hasn't won a fight since Feb 2016 and is on a 4 fight losing streak being finished 3x by sub as per usual!! Thing is this Sone guy isn't up to much at all with nearly 20 losses on his record, most of them finishes. Pretty clear Rizin are trying to get Scoggins a win here so they can set him up against 1 of their bigger Japanese names later. So I'll take Scoggins but I won't be surprised in the slightest if he ends up getting subbed here!!!

So much awesomeness. Pumped to see Mizugaki again, even though he's likely dead here. Another tough fight for Horiguchi, can he do it again? Brooks and Scoggins should be interesting. Not to mention the walkouts make the UFC look like amateurs. I cap this card at about 98% that I'm Gunna run out of weed.
