    Krazy Horse vs. Minoru Kimura is off as Krazy Horse had problems getting his VISA.

    I believe Tenshin Nasukawa will be fighting on NYE even though he fought today. His opponent is expected to be announced tomorrow. Most likely during the weigh ins.

    ONLY IN JAPAN!

    Great haha.

    Also, I didn't care about the rematch between Krazy Horse and Kimura so it's all good.

    145lbs- Tatsuya Kawajiri (35-10-2) vs. Kron Gracie (3-0)

    108lbs- Rena Kubota 2-0() vs. Hanna Gujwan (1-0)

    108lbs- Andy Nguyen (3-3) vs. Miyuu Yamamoto (0-1)

    These are the main fights worth watching. RENA is still committed to Shootboxing, but I think she can do well in mma. Make or break for Miyuu, and she's facing another striker.

    Who doesn't wanna watch the son of Rickson in his toughest test by far?

    Wow. This card is much worse than the other night. It does have the semis and finals though so that makes it worth it but holy shit there's like nothing else worth watching. Kawajiri vs. Kron Gracie I guess. I'm over Tokoro, his fight will probably be fun but the guy isn't good.

    Crazy Horse said he had some fun ideas for tomorrows rematch so I'm pretty bummed out it won't happen.

    hopefully this event is a good one, sucks those fights got cancelled because every bit could help here. It sucks they weren't able to secure any big marquee match ups for the NYE event, but, hopefully next year.

    Pretty cool I get to go from watching the UFC ppv straight into this, pretty much an MMA fan's dream.

    I wish I cared about this. Will check in for some results. Hopefully the Japanese crowd enjoys their entertainment.

    Expecting to see another 'Gracie Hunter' VTR with a proper Saku + Crusher intro.

    Baruto is getting fucking wrecked, he's like the human punching bag Mirko needs to warm up to Valentin, but will likely gas out due to his new found stamina--training under waterfalls is battle tested!

    Hard to say who comes out on top of that, though, I want to give the edge to Moldovsky as CroCop is probably iced out and resting right about now.

    Still, War CroCop!
