"Chinese 'Bullfrog' Baoyincang and the Japanese 'King Toad' Shimoishi Kota is a fight between two nations. These two athletes, who easily won in the preliminary trials in China and Japan respectively, are likely to be the strongest fighters from each country. It should be interesting because they have very contrasting styles.


"Baoyincang has great physical power, and that's how he wins fights. Shimoishi uses his wrestling technique and striking to win.

"The way this fight goes will depend on how well Baoyincang can defend against Shimoishi's takedowns. Baoyincang will have a lot of trouble if he ends up in the bottom position on the ground under Shimoishi, so it's important to see how he defends any shoots and counters with his striking. If Baoyincang has no takedown defense, Shimoishi will win easily in the first round.

"I expect that Shimoishi has a 90% chance of coming out on top. The overwhelming gap in skills between that is like between me and all the quarterfinalists in this tournament. But anyway, try really hard, and show us all a good fight."
