Hey Zambidis on his day is definately capable of winning the title, guy is really strong and has the potential to ko any of these guys, his height and compact size, altough helpful in the power it helps him generate, is also a disadvantage when it comes to someone like Buakaw who can keep him at range using his legs as can someone who has as big an advantage in height as Sato (5"5 vs 6"1/2), both of these guys have beaten Mike due to these reasons and he could meet them again in this tournament, but if Zambidis turns up on form, he has a good chance.
And yeah Masato vs Buakaw really is a dream match, Buakaw already schooled him, but in fairness Masato wasnt at 100% as he had a very tough previous fight and came in with black eyes and sore ribs to fight Buakaw.
This time it is both of there first fights and they will be 100%, should be great, if Masato wants to win this thing again, this is as good a chance as he can get, he is able to fight Buakaw at 100% and then i would have him as favourite against anyone else he would have to fight that night besides Souwer, who he is still very capapable of beating.
So many people want Masato to win (along with 95% of Japan lol), should be a great atmosphere and a great fight.
And it is an excellent card all-round, hard to beat.
