I have two big questions after viewing the event:
Why didn't Masato fight?
What was the official reason? Is the real reason that he is still scared of Buakaw?
What was with Buakaw/Takeda fight?
Buakaw's fights in the last K-1 were all super awesome and totally exciting. This last one was very lame up until the last round. Why the hesitation? Is there something between those two guys?
NOTE: I watched it in Japanese so I didn't hear any commentating or anything where my questions might have been answered.

Masato was there, he said a few words. Kid also challenged him. I think he suffered some injuries from the last tournament. And no, Masato doesn't fear Bukkaw. After going against Kraus and Narangtugalang in the same night, with one eye, he fought Bukkaw for 4 round displaying offense and defense. ;)
The Buakaw/Kozo fight: I heard they fought traditional Thai style, first round just feeling out, then more aggressive as the rounds passes by. I haven't seen it yet, thats just what I read. Kozo was a Ratchadamern Stadium champion.

Antagony, I don't think you're giving Masato enough credit here. Buakaw just blasted on the K-1 scene, and Masato had no reason to believe he would get owned the way he did. If he is afraid, he at least has that justification.

Of course he has justification! Buakaw is fucking scary/awesome!

I just got finished watching the Buakaw - Kozo fight.
There was a HUGE amount of respect in the fight. I cant even count the amount of times the guys touched gloves. After each round they would touch gloves (sometimes twice in the beginning, once with one hand and then once with both hands).
The first round the two were throwing light techniques and feeling one another out. As the rounds progressed the intensity began to grow. While watching this fight i kept getting the feeling that the two fighters wanted it to go 5 rounds. Unlike the masato fight where buakaw was stunned at the extra round, the thai seemed to be very happy that he and kozo were able to fight again.
If you havent seen this fight yet i suggest you find a way to. The fight tells a story, the climax comes at the 5th round as Buakaw is screaming (kia-ish not pain) with the thai kicks, and goes the distance with someone who he probably looked up to, someone who he respected incrediably.
Hell of a thing.

Maybe I'm stupid. But isn't Sudo famous for his submission grappling skills? Isn't he the jujitsu guy? What is he doing in a standup comp?
