    Kulabdam vs Genji is a great fight, neither of them deserve to be fighting for the title but there should be some fireworks.

    Issei vs Nongrose - Should be good since they actually fight in the same weight division.

    yes Nong Rose in Japan is a perfect fit. Maybe a mixed rules fight against Gabi Garcia a la Aoki vs. Nagashima

    Issei's on a slide. KNOCK OUT jinxed him by promoting him as the Tenshin of the West. Gonna get TKO'd.

    Tenshin's opponent is supposed to be announced this week as well. Hopefully Ebata.

    Issei? He's technically back in the win column after a victory over Noto in Dec, but I think he had lost 2-3 in a row before that against no-names.

    Ebata is 33-1-3 on a 4 fight win streak. Don't know about Nong Rose.

    Issei fought at Rangsit a few times, won 1 by ko and lost the other. He's good fun to watch. Nong Rose is a better fighter but Issei throws down hard he could pull off an upset.

    Toughest test for Tenshin by far. With Wanchalong he was undersized and getting up there in age but Suakim fights at 57kg and is at the peak of his career.

    He actually has a bit of size on Tenshin, is top 10 in Lumpinee and looks good lately. Let's see.

    I'm glad he's getting someone of this caliber after that RIZIN tournament but Suakim definitely leaves some openings in his defense which is obviously dangerous vs Tenshin. Hopefully he doesn't get finished early, I really want to see someone weather the storm and give him a run for his money in the later rounds.

    Finally a good fight for this guy! Looking forward to it.

    Rooting for Suakim but I can see Tenshin scoring the KO because Suakim always seems to be dragged into a brawl. No complaining about this one - it is a rather logical follow up to Wanchalong - but still I believe his management is carefully picking his opponents. not that there's anything wrong with it, I'm just pointing it out.
