Japan has been putting great cards. Way better than what we get here in US.

Good lineup, except for Nishioka-Munoz. I realize Nishioka is coming off a mandatory, but Munoz has beaten five crappy opponents with a combined 74-55 record since losing to a 14-14-3 clubfighter. Really awful opponent for an excellent champion

Hasegawa looks like he has somewhere better to be.
