HERO`s Middle Weight Tournament Preview

Saturday 15 September 2007

Well, its 2 days to go. This is the BIG event in Japan, with Pride gone, HERO`s is the main MMA arena and they have put together some awesome match ups in this tournament. Here is how I expect it to go and why you should watch it.

Gesias "J.Z." Calvan vs. Vitor "Shaolin" Riberio
These are ranked #4 (Riberio) and #7 (Calvan) on the Sherdog ranking. This will be an amazing fight, and I can`t wait to see these battle it out. I expect Shaolin to win this, but this will be a tough fight and one I cant wait to see.

Caol Uno vs. Andre Dida
Caol Uno is a very experienced fighter, and he is up against a relatively new guy. I expect Uno will win this because of his experience and home advantage.

That puts Caol Uno Vs. Vitor "Shaolin" Riberio inn the final. I will have to give the advantage to Shaolin, but think he will be more tired than Uno after the first fight.

Other fights to look out for in Mondays event is Kharitonov vs Overeem, in my mind the main event. I expect Kharitonov will revenge his loss from last year.

The card also includes:
Zelg Galesic
Yamamoto "Kid"

This will be an amazing event and I cant wait to go.
