    Akiyama must not get very sound advice from his people. He's too damn small for 185. He will be cut after this fight. He should have already changed weight classes.

    First Chael and now Nate. I dont see this being any easier than Chael and sadly Sexyama is prolly gonna get his walking papers with a loss. The UFC is really trying to get Akiyama to prove something with who they keep matching him up with.

    I doubt they'd get rid of him unless he gets absolutely blown away.

    He's been competitive in his losses, fight of the night, and is big for the Asian market.

    Though, yes, he is definitely going to lose.

    end it with a left
    So they're trying to end his nick name Sexyama giving him all these bangers. Too bad for him he's not fighting Chael anymore cause he might actually get a scar fighting Nate.

    wow I looked up their reaches because for some reason I thought Nate was going to have a couple inches on him but it turns out (according to wikipedia) that Sexyama has a inch advantage on Nate. It might actually be a decent striking match up.

    i like this fight way better than akiyama/sonnen. akiyama is coming off 2 losses while chael is coming off the most impressive performance of his career (albeit in a losing effort). marquardt on the other hand is coming off a less than stellar performance so this is the perfect opportunity for him to redeem himself. plus i think akiyama and marquardt's styles match up better. chael was just an overall bad match-up for akiyama.

    if nate is smart, he'll brush up on that wrestling of his that we haven't seen in quite some time, but as a spectator, a stand-up battle would be oh so delightful. with that said, i'm going to go on a limb and say akiyama via split decision or even possibly 2nd round stoppage.
