    Hansen has been competing in the 63kg (139) division and walks lighter then the lightweight limit (weighed in at 150lbs against Aoki). He will be giving up way too much size against an opponent who looks to wrestle and utilize top control. I will be rooting for Hellboy but I don’t like the match up for him.

    Imanari vs Cullum is GOOD TIMES.

    Watch out for Takafumi Otsuka!!! He is a bad ass and my favorite fighter right now.

    I hope he meets Banuelos (he’d crush him) in the 2nd round but he has to get past Bibiano first and the odds are against him on that….

    Great show.

    I’ve got the young underdog Otsuka and my man Davis has Diniz.

    Anyone else? Bobby?

    Diniz looked awesome against Jesse Brock at Shooto Brazil.

    I think we’ll see Diniz vs Banuelos for the final, with Diniz taking the tourney. This would be a very exciting fight. I’d like to see it under the 10 minute forst round rules, but I think they’ve moved on from that. Also, with the sketchy Japanese judging, they will want to see a hometown fighter in the final.

    I think Diniz vs Saadulaev is the toughest first match up.

    Plus all the favs are on here, Hellboy, Uno, Aoki, Saku. Plus we have Williamy, Razor Rob and Harris, this could be the best (most entertaining) Dream card yet.
