Gustavo took the fight with Yachi on 9 days notice, was a 145er fighting at 155, was 8-0 with a 100% finish rate, was fighting probably the top 155er in Japan (that's arguable, but one of the top LWs anyway), had never fought in a promotion of any real consequence. So many variables going into that fight, and he put a stamp on that event. Wanderlei was vouching for him, and when the Axe Murderer vouches for a guy named Killer, you at least have to entertain the idea that the kid might have some talent. Dude looked like he belonged, and smashed Yachi's face all to hell.


Great show last night.
