UFC in Japan: Breaking Down the Prelims

Tiequan Zhang (15-2, 1-1 UFC) vs. Issei Tamura (6-2, 0-0 UFC)

Issei Tamura is coming off a loss to Guy Delumeau. Don't worry, I don't know who he is, either. My research on Tamura revealed that he trains at Krazy Bee, which used to mean something, but now it doesn't. This was Zuffa's third choice, after Leonard Garcia and Nam Phan. As crazy as it sounds, Zhang is a winnable fight for Leonard Garcia. Whens the last time you could conceivably say that, especially during his latest UFC tenure? So, um ... Tiequan Zhang!

Zhang is another fighter (they're all over this card) who is dangerous in the opening minutes and then gasses hard. However, I don't see him having too much trouble against a guy with zero offense on top. I think he either pulls off that slick guillotine or hurts Tamura on the feet enough to warrant a stoppage. It won't last five minutes. Zhang by submission.
