Debuting in the UFC Japanese Michinori Tanaka (9-0, 0-0 UFC) crosses gloves with the local Canadian Roland Delorme (9-2, 1 NC, 3-1, 1 NC UFC).
Tanaka is primarily aggressively fighting a grappler who is not as Single plane in this element as Delorme. Japanese your game completes a decent stand-up collar (is mobile, fast moving slightly on his feet, good control distance, hits with both hands, copies lowkingi and high kicks) and very good sprowadzeniami - both from a distance and from the clinch. There is also a great condition (recently won two 5-rundówki) - probably much better than Canadian, but here we have to take for the fact that it will debut the Japanese in the UFC (stress), and the fight itself will be held in Canada (travel, etc.). , so the prevalence of cardio Tanaka does not have to be so obvious.
How Michinori looks while on the ground, so the plane in which most likely will be fought this duel? Had suggest his duels with Caleb Vallotonem and Crisanto Pitpitungiem, you would conclude that this barely 23-year-old plagued much of his youth - he was very aggressive on the ground, constantly seeking surrender and thereby often losing excellent positions (pounce), giving the at the same time catch the various techniques ending (rear naked choke, omoplata). It was felt that the Japanese are brilliant grappler, but clearly lacks the methodical, control on the ground, careful arrangement of a ball. In the latter, however, challenge Tanaka presented differently - yes, still brilliantly, with great dynamics walking down the leg this time Kyle Aguona, famously knocking it out of the clinch, but the real difference was his game-storied - this time it was a lot more control, much less follies.
Will that be enough for Roland Delorme, who 6 of 9 wins recorded by submission? Let us remember that the Canadian will have a big advantage of growth, the fight will take place in Canada, acting debut in the organization at the same time for Tanaka. I bet that the youth, dynamism and speed supported by prudent Japanese game storey will lead him to victory on points to the despair of the Canadian fans.
