    No idea who this guy is. He'll probably do terrible in the UFC like the rest of Japanese fighters. He'll probably lose his debut by KO. Or he'll win a boring decision.

    The dude that got wrecked by Siver?

    I'm sure he'll do much better this time around, Tavares and Siver are no slouches, not to mention he's surely (hopefully) improved by then.

    Without a doubt, the re-signing I've been waiting for (along with Nate Loughran).

    Hopefully this one will be better than his fight with Siver.

    nice, i've been hoping he would get a second chance and it should be interesting but i can't say i expect too much from him.

    I like the way the door always remains open for guys to come back if they can put a streak together (obviously guys like Daley aside).

    good signing for UFC taking the ZST LW champ. His sub game is impressive.

    I'm quite sympathetic towards Japanese fighters for some reason.
    Odd that he has so many draws.
