fighter visits

Let's not get overly excited . . .

Ikuhisa Minowa, Hidehiko Yoshida, Yousuke Nishijima, and Vanderlei Silva.

What do these four guys have in common?

They were the four non-heavyweight entrants in the Pride Open Weight Grand Prix. Maybe at fight time some of them were over 93 kg, but I think you know what I mean.

Also, aside from Nishijima, who was set up as fodder for Yoshida, all of them faced Mirko Cro Cop in the tournament. There is no doubt that Mirko looked mighty impressive in the Grand Prix. But before we proclaim him a god, let alone the man to unseat Fedor, let's remember that he wasn't really put on the toughest path to the championship.

Count me as one person who thinks that Mirko needs to avenge his loss against Nogueira, too.
