Ohma cant fight so Kazzy has to. Matches are completely decided by if he can get the fix in because whatever psychopath hes up against will mulch him immediately

Well his opponent would be Cosmo based on the brackets, who isn't much of a psycho and currently can't stand up.

Didnt julius get hyped up extremely hard at the beginning or am I crazy? For some reason I thought he and the fang were thought to be the strongest going into the first round.

He's the fighter for the #2 ranked company plus he was lurking around as the main big bad guy when scar eye CEO was doing his evil mastermind speeches.

Calling that Muteba will be winning the next fight up until he accidentally trips over one of the massive craters that have now been punched in the arena floor and breaks his neck.

I feel like the match isn�t over yet. All I can really tell is that Muteba switched from his left hand to his right during that last attack and performed what looks like a slashing move

I thought Seki performed the other eye gouge dodge, that�s more dangerous, but he�s bleeding from his neck

Muteba feints with an eye gouge so that Seki does his special little duck down slightly dodge that he's done the other two times.

Instead the real attack is with his other hand, you can see it blurring in and making a slight thumping noise as he unleashes the Five Point Palm Exploding Heart Technique or cut his throat with his fingernails whatever it is that makes Seki spurt blood everywhere.

Don't answer his question about who you are Gensai, it's a trick to get you to reveal your backstory first and therefore lose the fight. Keep on asking him about his backstory so he reveals it first.

Gensai has't even unleashed his TRUE POWER yet. Dude's nicknamed "The Devil's Lance" and he's able to ram his fingers through steel and carve out intricate sculptures from solid stone but he's only been throwing ordinary punches so far.

Bando Yohei is an obvious jobber who only progressed because he was put against another obvious jobber in round one.

The "guy who uses a style based on joint locks and throws vs a guy with a billion joints who's unjoint-lockable and unthrowable" will make it more even but a bajillion pounds says Bando goes down.

Now he wants to wait and observe his fighting style.

I don't think this has ever been stated and if it has it's kinda stupid considering the Fang's whole deal is he doesn't have a style, or if he does its one that's constantly changing.

Suspicious Lump posted:

So what's Kazzy actually doing in the Kengan matches. Is he a proxy for other non-kengan companies to settle fights with kengan matches? Or maybe CEOs use him to source new blood to keep their fighters in prime fighting abilities?

I get the feeling he is basically a temp agency who matches fighters outside of their normal company to help them grow and he maybe takes a cut.

Matches Cosmo's comments and fits Kazzys personalities of the Kenyan matches being an end unto themselves rather than simply a means of futhering a business's wealth.

If there's one thing that I've learned from fighting manga, it's that using Sambo is a guaranteed loss.

If you have just shown your trump card and are bragging at the end of a chapter without actually having been shown to win, get ready to get your rear end handed to you.

I believe there's a bit of a cultural dissonance with this. Even if it's ultimately your own life, if you immediately move away from the person/company/country that has taken care of your professional upbringing you'll be seen as a piece of poo poo in many places.

Doesn't really apply when the profession you're moving away from is death matches.

they never had particularly strong motivations in the annihilation tournament, either. they were hired fighters with no particular stake in the overall outcome besides a general desire for victory. the real participants were the ceos, not their proxies.

Not for a good chunk of the fighters though. Some had personal rivalries even if one-sided (Wakatsuki vs Fang, Saw Paing vs Gaoling, Setsuna vs Ohma), you had people who didn't really give a poo poo about the company but were super into fighting the strongest people possible (Ohma, Kuroki, Kaneda), you had fighters who had a really strong attachment to their CEO (Rei, the Fang and somewhat less so Wakatsuki and Cosmo), Bando had his weird thing where he wanted to finish his research (and get off death row for a while), Meguro was pure kill crazy, the cop bastard had his whole thing about executing justice and secretly controlling his CEO under threat of death or whatever the hell went on there.

Although I agree that the line about Gaolang being "too public" of a fighter for the underground is a little weird when he was an accomplished kengan fighter.

He's literally only fought in two Kenyan matches ever, both in the annihilation tournament two years ago. It states his match against Kaneda is his first Kenyan appearance, then he loses to Fang and spends 2 years training.

Wondering if Ryuki might either lose or just barely win, for it to act as a spur to develop his combat abilities seeing as the Gaoh style isn't meant to be very good in this kind of fight.

Iirc Gaolang was number 1, and only was number 2 in P4P while El Dorado was active

They didn't box at the same time (https://mangadex.org/chapter/882698/4), so the P4P rankings mentioned the chapter before are presumably GOAT rankings.

Really interest in the final 4 match ups since ohma is presumably going to fight the tiger vessel as opposed to donaire so you'd think wakatsuki would fight him. Would leave 2 people who grapple a lot Vs 2 presumably Kung Fu experts

Who is left at this point on each side?

Im guessing Okubo loses and Wakatsuki vs Lolong is a tie, leaving the deciding match to be Ohma vs Fei. I hope Im wrong though since this is a terribly boring outcome.

If purgatory wins one then ties another, they win overall I think. To have them tie It verbally, I think we need 2 Kengan wins and 1 Purgatory win.

Very powerful Anderson Silva vs Chris Weidman energy there.

Its great that you can dodge attacks with your guard down to clown on your opponent, but maybe keep your guard up just in case you misjudge it and he gets a punch in?
