I'm looking forward to a few fights. Other than that this card doesn't do much.
#1 Andrade vs Gadelha - That's just a fantastic WSW fight. I could see going either way And imo better than the Main Event by a landslide.
#2 Formiga vs Sasaki - Who's counted out Sasaki more than once in a fight? I know i have. This should be interesting and i won't rule him out in this one. We should see some high level grappling exchanges in this one.
#3 Abe vs Lim - Seems like a squash match. Not in my eyes. We had Abe on 1 BOTR combo for Pancrase and he looked fantastic. This is a huge, huge step up but don't be surprised if Abe pulls out some of those skills that i watched him use at Pancrase. This fight has violence written all over it. You guys all know Lim, but Abe matches up well. He showed nice judo, lethal strikes and he's gonna give Lim a run for his money. Think about it why would they match a noob against a killer like Lim. Guaranteed fireworks, someone's winning a bonus in this fight. If not both. Trust me if you want to see an entertaining fight check these 2 out when they lock horns. No wrestling just straight up striking. Could last 1 min or 15 mins but it'll be a WAR for however long they go. I expect Lim to be the favorite though.
