Before I get to my analysis, one thing that really intrigues me about this card is going to be the crowd aesthetic. Will they be silent? Will they make that "hhhhhRAAAAHHH!!" noise that only the Japanese can make, and that they can only make when something exciting is happening? I think tons of people are overlooking this dynamic. Will there be tons of youngsters with weird haircuts there, getting drunk and screaming into the camera? Or will it be a more traditional Japanese crowd? I'm wildly intrigued by this, and I can't wait to see how it plays out.
I think it will play out really, really badly for Joe Lauzon, but for the rest of my analysis, I refer you below. Because you can't spell "analysis" without "anal".
