kawajiri by decision but it will be a war, this sets up a possilbe aoki shinya kawajiri final, i don't think it gets much better than that.

I think Eddie could be on his way to winning the whole thing. Kawajiri is the best matchup for him right now. Eddie should be able to take Tatsuya down, because he likes to strike. Alvarez is one of the best 155 wrestlers.

If Eddie wins this one, the final matchup will be tough for him, no matter who it is. Uno has that unorthodox fighting style, and Aoki is a younger (and possibly better) version of Caol. It's going to be difficult for Eddie to defeat either one, but I'll still take him to win the tourney.

I like Alvarez in this fight. Well rounded guy, and looks comfortable wherever the fight goes. I think he meets Aoki in the final where he loses to an upside down gogoplata.lol.

I agree, Alvarez wins the whole thing in an epic war with Uno in the finals... I picked Alvarez to win this whole thing from the beginning and I still think that. Alvarez by decision in this fight and then Alvarez by tko in the first against Uno

Kawajiri should win this fight, but I don't know if he'll win the tournament.

Alvarez is a much better striker than he is wrestler.

And to say hes one of the best wrestlers at 155, the most heavily wrestler dense weight division out there, is kind of silly.

Im taking eddie, kawajirir definitely has the tools on the ground to take this IMO and it should be quite obvious to eddie's camp that he needs to make this a stand-up fight. With his natural athletic ability and skill i think hell come prepared to sprawl and brawl to a UD victory.
