    He's been getting some very favorable matchups and it looks like that trend is continuing.

    I have a feeling Peralta is probably going to KO Corrasani.

    Yesss!!!
    I usually cheer for the "characters" on tuf, like May, Browning, Leben, Dodson, War Machine and even Lane didn't annoy me too bad. But Akira did some really obnoxious, uncalled for and less than desirables on the show relatively consistently. Shaving Caraway's head? Really? I really understood Caraway's anger and I really wanted him to get some revenge right there.
    Basically, In a nut shell... I'm just stating that I'm happy about Akira getting a step up in competition. Peralta's got incredible potential and he's going to present problems for Akira.

    Akira shouldn't pose too many problems for Peralta.

    isnt this also on kinda short notice? 4 weeks isnt that long, hes been training his ass off everyday though but still. Idk why he hadn't got a fight sooner since his last was so short

    judging from Akira's last fight.... Robbie should have a really easy fight.


    1st round KO is coming, your gym should be really happy. Congrats for your gym's win. :redface:

    Rooting for Peralta in this one. "Akira" is an awesome film, but Hamid is an underwhelming fighter, more known for his fake tap on TUF than for anything else.

    Sounds entertaining but probably too much for Akira, I would've preferred Peralta get a shot at somebody higher up like Nunes. Still a good addition to the card.

    Thanks :) It should be an easy fight but this IS mma and anything can happen on any given night. I don't know why they didn't give him a fight on the Anaheim card, it's closer lol. I want him to get a step up also cuz I'm tired of having to watch the fights on facebook lol

    Very weird fight. Peralta's just KO'd someone in seconds to move to 2-0, with a solid overall record....against Akira. The guy who eked out a dodgy split decision in his debut.

    Peralta should rinse him.

    Robbie needs a top 10 or top 15 opponent. Akira barely beat Ogle and many people think he didnt beat him at all.

    Robbie should beat him down pretty handily.
