    Buchinger didn't impress in his last fight, yes he got the win but didn't look that great in doing so, tends to grind down opponents well with his Wrestling style, haven't seen him as effective in his last 3 fights though?.

    Mick will have been out for nearly 2 years and in that time the other guys have had 6+ fights each so that may play a factor and his loss against Danny Van Bergen (11-10-3-1) only 2 fights ago which was one that he probably was expected to win. Has Mick fought at FW before? as in is he a "smaller" type of LW who may not cut as much?

    Ball is very active but most of his losses are by Decision, I know he has Sub wins to his name and a few of them but I don't think his ground game is the best and could struggle if the more smothering guys like Ray and Buchinger get alot of top position. That said his Boxing is pretty crisp due to his extensive Boxing experience.

    Ray is coming off a loss but no great shame in dropping a close Decision to Curt Warburton in his home town. He's learning all the time and is training over at Tristar with guys like Mike Ricci, GSP, John Makdessi, Mark Bocek etc so will be coming into the tourny ready. He has good grappling (shown by various Sub wins on his record), his Wrestling is very good, has a Judo background and his Striking is improving all the time.

    I would edge it in Steven Ray's favour but a tourny is funny as one fighter can get an early finish and the other semi get a 3rd war.

    Will be interesting to see aswell who the reserve fight is?
    If you didn't see it with your own eyes, or hear it with your own ears, don't invent it with your small mind and share it with your big mouth!

    I don't understand?

    He's a LW and it's a LW tournament?

    I think ray is the favourite. (Only my opinion) due to his performance against warburton

    Jim was asking if Sinclair had fought at featherweight before (he has) to get an idea if he is a smaller lightweight being capable of making featherweight. If I remember correctly the cut to featherweight was too much and was the reason he returned to lightweight.

    With that said...

    ...War Ray!
