Fight Alert: JZ Cavalcante vs Tatsuya Kawajiri
When: DREAM.9, May 26th
Where: Saitama Super Arena, Tokyo, Japan
Assessment: Two of the best lightweight fighters competing in Japan are about to face off, and who knows how it’s going to turn out? JZ is back after a year of not fighting … I dunno wassup with the break, but I do know it’s been WAY too long since he’s stepped in the ring. Kawajiri is probably the best lightweight fighter in Japan that you don’t know. If you want to catch up to speed, just watch ” target=”_blank”>his fight with Eddie Alvarez. Cavalcante should win this fight, but Kawajiri isn’t going down easy.
Hype: 8/10 – It doesn’t get much better than seeing two of the best in a promotion face off. This is the kind of matchmaking DREAM should have been doing since day one. There’s no way this fight is going to suck, and pretty much guarantees that I’ll be staying up till the wee hours of the morning to watch it.
Odds: JZ Cavalcante (-200) Tatsuya Kawajiri (+175)
