    Agree with spree, this will most likely be the tournament reserve fight… I was thinking they would bring Ishida in, but looks like its Black Mamba!

    Yeah, could very well be Hansen vs. Mamba in the reserve fight.

    I agree with a Hansen vs. Mamba reserve fight. Ishida didn’t show much against Uno, and Mamba definitely put on a very competitive bout with Kawajiri.

    No doubt J.Z. would be in the reserve match if his ACL wasn’t torn up.

    I didnt really aprove with the fighting style of Mamba before, but after the Tokoro fight I understod that his submission defens was really good. Not just striker!
    HANSEN VS MAMBA should be a crowed pleaser…

    agree with all, Hansen vs. Black Mamba will be a very exciting match up. Black Mamba needs someone that will want to stand and trade with him as every fighter tries to take the fight to the ground…. also gotta mention that Black Mamba is my favorite fighter int he WORLD….CROWD PLEASER FOR SURE….
