    Disappointed Cro Cop is still taking squash matches at this stage of his career.

    Isn't he retiring in December?

    Sunabe getting close to the end of his career I am assuming. Been around a while and is 39 he has been fun to watch in Pancrase for a long time.

    Cruickshank - Brandao should be a good fight. Cruickshank can win this on the feet.


    Guchi - Tenshin is too fucking cool. Under these rules I will not be surprised if Tenshin gets a clear unanimous decision here

    He's 44 and just tore his MCL do you expect him to be coming back against Minakov?
    Also Roque Martinez is a solid opponent, very durable, good conditioning, good jab, surprising handspeed, wouldn't be shocked if he pulled this out

    He should be fighting other weathered down PRIDE vets with big names like the Emelianenko brothers, W. Silva, Rampage, etc.

    Actually, the logical fight would've been a rematch against Aleks.

    They really building Tenshin's name up with this. Pretty decent little card

    This should be fun. Tenshin/Kyoji will be interesting but I think Goochi gets outclassed.

    Not sure if trolling. Martinez is undefeated since 2011, and dominated both of his Rizin opponents. He's legit.

    Does Tenshin have any plans on returning to MMA? Rather see that then Kickboxing but I'll take it.
