    This card is about giving opportunities and nurturing talents from local fighters. Nevertheless, it is history in the making and it is highly anticipated. Prelim starts at 7pm and main card at 8.30pm local time Beijing. My picks are:
    Song vs Ji – Best of the young Chinese will battle it out to find out who sits at the top of the country bantamweight division. I think both will go all out to end the fight in whichever way they can find, making this a great fight to watch, certainly from the standup point if view.
    Sexton vs Anvar – I think with the replacement, this could potentially be a fight of the night contender. I see this being back and forth, on ground and stand up, both trading to eliminate each other. Sexton needs to establish himself but the Russian knows how to win.
    Mike vs Rafael – They may lack the skills but the experience and pedigree to fight and win will make this fight a slugfest. Each one is looking for a knockout and i see one will eventually get ko or tko.
    As previous tournament against own country anything to go by, this particular one is no difference. Having the roar of the home crowd and the eager to make a name will sparkle and light up the fights.Let the entertainment begins.
