    I"m seeing some odds at well over +300 for Kawajiri.

    Can anyone here see him getting the upset over Cub?

    only way i see him winning is grinding out a decision using his wrasling, but i think cub will be to much for him.

    He could, but I don't think he will.

    Kawajiri will have to fight hard to hold him down.

    That fight won't happen. Going to be an injury replacement fight. Said it months ago.

    kawajiri was able to win a round against bermudez.

    he 100% can win this, and the odds are insane.

    Ya I agree.

    I can see Kawajiri pressuring Cub and holding him down for at least 2 rounds.

    The odds are a litlte out of wack for this fight.

    Crusher's last three loses?
    Denni B, Clay the Carpenter and Giblert Melendez

    I don't favor him, but he has a shot here
    Cub isn't the world's best wrestler

    Kawajiri via serious lay-and-pray

    Does he even have any fans left after the Siver fight?

    Prime Crusher easily outgrapples and finishes Cub from top position

    Hes been way past prime tho but still had solid performances against Soriano and Knight

    i can see him giving Cub problems, maybe take a round maybe even threaten a 2nd but he doesnt have the same stifling and grappling game he did in his prime, his sturiking has regressed too, never great but he doesnt even know what hes doing these days

    I recall Cub knocking him out.
    ...yes he got the td in the first but outwresrling is bit of a stretch

    Denis Siver had success wrestling Cub and won the first round of their fight. Was doing good before he started to slow down.

    Kawajiri wrestled Bermudez and won a round.

    Thing is, I don't think Kawajiri has the cardio to keep the pressure on for 3 rounds. I can see him winning the first round and then fading in the third.

    Still Kawajiri was able to wrestle Josh Thompson to a decision, so you can't sleep on him. Plus Swanson hasn't look great in past fight, looks like he's lost a step.
