The kid doesn't have a bad record, but seriously Kawajiri is undefeated as a FW and even as a LW has only lost to extremely top notch competition (Melendez, Aoki, Alvarez). I think he will "Crush" Soriano. See what I did there?!

Seriously disappointed in either the UFC or the FW roster for not finding a better replacement. I get this card isn't supoosed to be stacked but you are going to tell me no one in the UFC's FW divsion wants a chance to add a name like Kawajiri's to their resume? Everyone on this site knows what a huge win that could be in terms of respect in the MMA community, Crusher has been around a long time and is held in high regards to anyone who has watched MMA for more then a year or two.

I expected maybe Dennis Bermudez, Jimmy Hetes, or Daniel Pinedia someone in that caliber. Not that Soriano is a can, his record looks good but seriously sad the UFC couldn't do better.

I'm not even opposed to having Halloway fight Kawajiri and Soriano facing Max's opponent.

Don't sleep on Soriano. One of the better muay thai guys out there and terrific matwork. If Crusher doesn't take this seriously, he'll get pasted.

maybe they don't want to take on someone like TK with only a month camp, probably only 3 weeks with the fight week media obligations
