Really though, this is such an awesome match-up its ridiculous.

Both Tetsuya and Gesias have some of the best striking in the entire LW division, and both have similar styles and really thats going to be a FOTY candidate if they go at it.

Both have good chins and both have great stand up....should be a barn burner. I will take JZ with the eventual KO though.

I think JZ will put Kawajiri down hard. Will be an awesome fight though leading up the the eventual KO.

Gesias is just such a monster, its really hard to pick against him.

So far the only chink in his armor has been flying limb snatching body climbing judoka's, and that was with a torn acl.
