Thats a really good fight. Misaki should win this via sub but he likes to stand and trade which could be incredibly problematic.

I like this fight a lot. A lot of people are going to pick Misaki here by submission but I like Manhoef for the upset by KO. Manhoef likes to come in early swinging bombs and like the guy before me said, Misaki tends to find himself trading on the feet quite a bit.

On a bit of a side note, Manhoef would be extremely scary with a solid ground game.

Melvin is to me a K-1 fighter who likes the challenge of MMA without fully devoting himself to either one sport completly. Like Semmy Schilt or Overeem.

Semmy is a K1 champ.K1is the premiere kickboxing organazation .I think that shows his dedication to kickboxing.
Overeem I will agree with you with although he is champ of Strikeforce he clearly seems not to have any interest in defending in the U.S.A foer suspect reasons.

Really interesting matchup IMO. Hopefully Misaki won't try to stand and bang for too long. He's one of my favorite fighters. Then again, so is Melvin. Misaki is really crafty when fighting aggressive fighters like Manhoef, though. He can toss you and slap a submission on you before you even realize what happened. I suspect Manhoef might end up in that exact boat.

Wow Jakelope you have over 1000 Props! And it looks like they are going to have to redesign the prop meter agian as yours has runith over. Congrats! Do you have the most on the site?

Back to the subject great fight! As stated before Misaki will bang but I think he will stay away with Melivns Power and look to get the sub.

Very true, Schilt was a bad example, Overeem really isn't the best example though either as he has developed a pretty decent ground game over the years. I guess Schilt isn't too dedicated to MMA, and Overeem is just not dedicated to US MMA.....sorry, I'm starting to babble.....

Hit the nail on the head man. If Misaki is going to play with fire he will get burned. Melvin is owner of one of the greatest KOs off all time IMO. When he put Hunt in the ground I damn near **** a brick. He hit soo hard it is ridiculous. All Misaki has to do is get it to the ground and it should be done though. Melvins fatal flaw!
