Live on Saturday 10th December 2016 from the 2,000 capacity Hayashi's lounge, comes Pulse fighting championship 52. In the main event we will have 3 title bouts with a new lightweight world champion being crowned! We can expect a great event with a lot of fights not going to the judges!
Anderson "Spiderface" Aldo vs Piranha Chonan III for the MW PFC belt
In the main event we have MW champion Anderson "Spiderface" Aldo defending his belt against #1 ranked Piranha Chonan... Aldo is on a six fight winning streak since losing his only loss against Sebastien Ostereguy... An striker by nature, all his fights came to the short end except once. Chonan, the former MW PFC champion, looks to rebound from his previous losses against Aldo (both by TKO due to Doctor Stoppages) and by that, ending his streak and getting Pulse gold. A natural striker with a nasty clinchwork, 80% of Chonan's fights ended by TKO. Will he avenge his past losses ending Aldo's streak?
Prediction: Chonan evolved from his past fights with Aldo, but so did Aldo. Aldo couldn't knock Chonan on both ocasions and won't do it again. Aldo by decision
Von "Stomper" Cranial vs Zee "zzZZZzZzz" Snore for the PFC HW belt
In the co-main event we have a HW title bout with defending champion Von "Stomper" Cranial defending his belt against #1 ranked Zee "zzZZZzZzz" Snore on a fight that promises violence. Von Cranial looks quite unbeatable these days by going into this fight in a 8 fight winning streak with 7 coming by the way of K.O. This goliath have a lot of power on his hands and can only promise another K.O. Zee Snore is a promising prospect that came direct from the Island, where he only lost to Tommy Thunderking(which should be turned into a NC due to the Wolfgate) Snore holds a 90% finish ratio so this fight surely promise not go to the judges. Will Zee become the next Pulse FC champion or Cranial will add another victim to his cartel?
Prediction: This fights looks to be a pure striking match where Cranial somehow looks to have an advantage. Zee is a good prospect but maybe it was too much too soon. Cranial by second round K.O
Nosyaj "Punchline" Rram vs Von "The Professional" Magnaron II for the vacant PFC LW belt
Coming to the LW division we have a fight of 2 former PFC champions who are looking to the recover their lost gold. Nosyaj, a PFC veteran and the #1 LW ranked, originally used to fight at the 145 division. Then he went to the 155 where he found sucess against pulse veteran Hwai Ja, Von Magnaron(winning the belt) and Oregano Westjoin(defending his belt) winning all those fights by the way of decision before being stopped by Justin Midget who took his belt (and his arm) away. Midget vacated the title signing with another org, which rewarded Magnaron with a chance of revening one of his losses. Rram, a striker by nature destroyed Magnaron by Five rounds by utilizing a combination of striking and takedown defense. Magnaron the # LW ranked, once was a dimensional wrestler who couldn't win if could't take the fight to the ground, will look show how he improved to a complete fighter by coming to this fight in a modest 2 fight winning streak against 2 former PFC LW champions.
Prediction: As showed before, Magnaron still struggles against strikers, still, he has power on his hands and the better wrestling. Rram will probably have the edge at striking and by that he will probably dictate this bout. Rram by Decision is the choice to make.
Seun Adedji vs Bertil "Bullen" Bengtsson/170lbs
In the 170 division we have #2 against #3 in a fight that can truly secure the way to pulse gold. We have former PFC champion Bertil Bengtsson against Seun Adedji. Bengtsson a promising prospect who only knew what was a decision victory on his career once will look to extent his winning streak to three by taking #3 ranked Seun Adedji. Adedji, a muay thai speciallist only lost once on his career against former PFC WW champion and PFC HOF Yuzan Yakuza and currently rides a 4 fight winning streak.Bertil is a fighter that looks to take advantage on his opponents mistakes but as showed against Yonglong Li, he looks to have problems in the clinch. Adedji is a MT expert who looks to tire his opponent with a dangerous clinch game and eventually take the victory.
Prediction: This fight is a matter of who will score. Bertil with a clean punch or Adedji with a clean knee? By this lottery i can take Adedji by second round TKO.
Devon Destruction vs Yoko Honda /265lbs
Coming to the 265 division we take #3 former title contender Devon Destruction against former PFC HW champion and ranked #4 Yoko Honda on what can be defined as a classic striker vs grappler match. Devon is essencially a "sprawl'n'brawl fighter with a good TDD game and a lot of knockout power on his hands, since all his victories came by the way of knock out. Honda currently rides a 2 fight losing streak (against #2 and #1 ranked) and will look to get back to the winning streak. A talentous wrestler, Honda completed at least one takedown on all the fights he went.
Prediction: It's a matter of where this fight will go: To the ground its Honda's, in the standup, Devon's. Honda had a lot of problem with strikers and has a suspect chin. Still, his superior wrestling will secure his victory. Honda by second round submission is the choice to take.
