This main event is fantastic; like a regional scene version of gamrot vs tsaryukan. Two high level grapplers matched up against one another. I think the winner of this goes to the big leagues as well so that’s fun.

Nice, great pairing. I really do think the winner gets a ufc call up. Maybe rizin or ONE as well for Tanaka should he win

Farias vs. Tanaka

I cannot wait for this fight. Two high level grapplers. Tanaka is the better mma fighter but farias is the better grappler and this fight is gonna take place on the ground so he will win

Askar vs. Silva
Diego Silva, DEC
I like askar a lot but silva pushes you to fight and askars last 3 fights have not been great

Johns vs. Kawana
Masuto Kawana, DEC
I thought this was gonna be easy for johns but then I saw Kawana won the u23 worlds for wrestling hahaha

Cunningham vs. Conley
AJ Cunningham, SUB, R1
Cunningham is decent.

Ninomiya vs. Talavera
Jota Ninomiya, SUB, R1
Set up fight

Askar vs. Mecate
Motaz Askar, SUB, R1
Time to see if motasz is the worse brother or not

Brown vs. Hoover
Ryan Hoover, DEC
Gimme the more experienced fighter

Quick question, does anyone know when the odds for LFA events usually drop? I’m surprised that they aren’t out already.

Going with Silva

Askar is not that good to me. Silva battled with Dan Argueta. Dog or pass.

Ehh not really. Johns is a good prospect and Kawana is unknown. I do think having that high level wrestling background makes this fight very interesting tho.
