Prediction Comments

Predictions: 3 of 4 Winners, 2 Perfect, 215 Points   |   Tied for 51st

Sahota vs. Yin
Shuai Yin, TKO, R2
Shuai Yin does not deserve to be here over his countryman Aidelibieke, but he got matched perfectly. He is a fun striker with decent grappling, but he has no chance against a decent wrestler. Luckily for him, Kiru is not that, he is a tall chinny kickboxer who will not be able to use his range. I think Yin takes this to the ground and eventually finds the finish

Pañales vs. Matsui
Toki Matsui, SUB, R2
This fight should be a banger. Matsui has a boxing background but he has had a really seamless transition to MMA. He has shown some kickboxing and some wrestling which is always good to see. He may be coming of a loss, but Salohidinov is one of the best prospects on the planet who likely just outwrestled him. Pañales is more of a boxer brawler, but he isn't nearly as polished anywhere. This should be Toki's fight and I see a world where he gets the submission victory

Li vs. Jenisuly
Balgyn Jenisuly, SUB, R1
Li was a short notice call, but this is unacceptable, he is 1-3 in his last 4 against really bad oposition, there are hundreds of better candidates in the region. Jenisuly is not going to wow anybody, but he is a solid guy and should get this done easily

Why are 2 of the fighters coming off L's? They couldn't find any better Asians?

It's actually 3, but Toki lost against one of the worlds top prospects and Li is short notice. I guess the reason Shuai Yin is there is probably cause he sells

They bought in bunch of Tomato Cans, guys who have lost their last fights and even a guy who isn’t even from Asia in this tournament instead of bringing decent Central Asian And Middle Eastern Talent, RTU Asian Match Makers are truly something else

Kiru is a bum he got outclassed by Shawn da Silva. Da Silva is solid but he was the first person with a pulse that Kiru fought, and he got dogwalked

That’s gotta be a mistake on tapologys part. Agasa can’t compete because of visa issues
