I tried to search for it but ended up empty handed (idk maybe I was doin it wrong or somethin) It's been brought up before on sherdog and other mma forums so I just wanted to know what you guys thought about it.

Kid Yamamoto vs. Urijah Faber

Who takes it???? I got KID winning the fight by KO in the 2nd. He's got olympic level wrestling, k-1 level striking, great submissions. I think he beats Urijah in every aspect of the game..

thoughts??

It's been discaussed plenty before other places but I don't think I've seen it here either, so I'll bite. I generally agree with you but in this sport anything can happen and Faber is known for trying to open cuts. I'll take Yamamoto by Ref. Stoppage KO/TKO inside of two.

I'll give it to Norifumi. He is just better than Faber in every aspect.

In a cage- Faber by Unanimous or Split Decison because I don't think Kid has ever fought in a cage and Faber could use his cage experience to an adavtage. Plus Kid took his last fight to the distance so I think Faber won't go down without a fight,,,


IN a ring- Kid by late RD KO. Faber will keep shooting with a lot of heart but he'll gas later and KId will stop him

I'd favor Kid over anyone at 145--almost over anyone at 155--but the thing about explosive bullying fighters is that they usually don't do well if someone doesn't fold right away.

There's a good chance Kid overwhelms him int he first round. If he doesn't, every round the fight goes on makes cardio-monster Faber's chances better and better. The most likely scenarios IMO:

Kid TKO 1
Faber UD
Kid TKO 2
Faber TKO 3, 4 or 5
