Ikki Takeda: The Main Event is a 170 title fight as Gideon Navarro puts his belt on the line against Kevin Daughtrey. This fight on paper looks to be a short night as Navarro seems to be too much for Kevin to take a bite out of. But ask anyone that has fought against Kevin and they will tell you that he hits like a Mack Truck. So he definitely has the power to win against anyone in the world. My pick for the fight is and still by KO.
Ikki Takeda: The Co-Main Event is between Ariel At Night versus Steve Collins. Ariel is a guy who has pretty decent stand up to couple with a brown belt in bjj. So he is prepared for anywhere any fight goes. Steve is a boxer and has one of the best jabs in the game. He lives and dies by the old boxer saying a man can rule the world with his left. In boxing means if you have a fast solid jab that your opponent can't get inside of you can win any and every fight. My prediction is Ariel by submission.
Ikki Takeda: The third fight on the main card is between Akira Harada and Putem The Nightmare. Akira has some amazing takedown defense and some of the best stand up in the world. Putem is a pure grappler and has the ability to submit just about anyone on the ground. I don't see him being able to get Akira down before getting knocked out in this one though. My prediction is Akira by KO.
Ikki Takeda: The fourth fight on the main card is between Zedidiah Goldberg and Apollo Reid. Zedidiah is looking for redemption after his loss to Victor Creed in which not getting finished was a pretty huge accomplishment given there difference in abilities on the ground. Apollo is coming off 2 straight losses which is going to have him going in desperate mode and as we all know you back an animal into a corner you're going to see the fangs. My pick in this fight is Zedidiah by KO.
Ikki Takeda: The fight kicking off the main card is between Hulk Hogan and Jason Imbert. Hulk is a formidable grappler for anyone and Jason is a boxer with a lot power and has great takedown defense. Jason wins this one by KO.
