    I don't have a source but I saw it on twitter. Im happy that they gave Hirota a shot after getting robbed against Healy but I think Yahya subs him

    Hell yeah. For what it's worth Hirota actually has pretty good TDD. He's 2-1 against top grapplers, wins over Kitaoka and Ishida and a loss to Aoki.

    Hope he gets a win.

    I like both guys but I'd rather see Hirota win after he got robbed in his last fight.

    Man everytime I see Hirota's name I think of that nasty arm crank. Awesome to see him in the UFC though.

    Glad to see Hirota isn't trying to fight at LW, FW is where he should be

    Awesome. Rani Yahya is great on the ground, but his striking defence against Grispi was very porous and he got hurt badly in short order. I wouldn't be confident if I bet on him against Hirota.

    sweet, I always like to see a japanese fighter fight in the ufc, especially a proven veteran like hirota. Glad he's decided to drop to FW.

    Good for hirota... I honestly thought he'd never fight again after Aoki. Great power puncher.
