Looks to be a pretty solid event. It'll be interesting to see Randleman back, and Monson vs Barnett should be pretty good too. I don't find their matchups as intriguing as Dream's, but I like how they still have some of the old Prideish feel to them. I predict alot of submissions for this card. My predictions are:
Barnett/ud- Monson usually has trouble with some of the bigger heavyweights, and that along with the fact that Babyface is pretty well versed in submissions as well, I don't see how Monson can win this fight.
Santiago/2/sub- Santiago's been pretty impressive lately, which is odd when you see how he got his ass kicked in the ufc. Ne ways, I think he should dismantle Sasaki pretty convincingly and secure a submission in the 2nd.
Randleman/ud- Randleman's been out of commision for a while but I think he'll be able to overpower Kawamura en route to a decision.
Gracie/2/sub- Youth vs Experience. Kondo is a solid vet but Gracie's win over Waterman really impressed me. WAR GRACIE!!
Pyle/1/sub- Hornbuckle's got alot of wins but not over very solid opponents imo. I think Pyle will be too much for him.
Nakao/2/sub-Tough one to call
Wow ! Nice pics and this card is shaping up to be 1 of the best Japanese Cards of the Year.
I'll give some Tips - Santiago's knees will Crush the Face of Sasaki because I don't think that the Hybrid Wrestler will be able to take Santiago down.
Kondo definately has the edge in this Fight, Great Takedowns and Submission Defence, if you don't think his takedowns are up to par then go watch the Dan Henderson Fight, he slammed him numerous times.
Mitsuoka is just sick with his Takedowns and Guillotine attempts, he'll definately beat the Undefeated Kwang Lee with a Submission.
And Nakao should take this with his Great Wrestling and Submission, he's impressive to watch.
