    It's been 2 years since the last Openweight GP and this one marks the beginning of annual ROAD Grand Prix. The opening round will happen in Beijing. I assume they decided on Openweight since Aorigele is one of their top stars and they are in need of non-rematch title fights for Mighty Mo.

    I don't think Mo will be in it, they didn't book A Sol in the Lightweight tourney so I think winner probably fights Mo. My guess is Huggy Bear is almost certainly one of the Americans

    I don't see myung being in the tounry. He was already scheduled to fight mighty mo twice before. Pretty sure he'll fight mo when he's healed up and the winner of the tourny will most likely fight the winner of mo or myung.

    Probably Jake heun but he wasn’t allowed in to China the last time they booked him. So not sold on him being there

    Is that Chinese guy the fat one who fought Sapp ? If so I'm genuinely concerned for his safety.

    It's not as if either of them are facing high level opponents.
