This will be interesting – this is not a striker Vs Grappler situation

Nakanishi is known to bang, likes to slam and throw opponents, but is equally happy to work vicious ground and pound and some submissions.

Manhoef gives absolutely no illusions of wanting to go to the floor (unless he has mounted you and is throwing down earth shattering left and rights)

Manhoef is the more experienced fighter and this may help him, however he is also the far more emotional fighter… and will no doubt do as his emotions tell him.


Honestly this has the making to be the best fight One Fc has seen !
