Tatsyua Kawajiri will step onto UFC Fight Night opponent Dennis Siver's home turf this Saturday, when the two featherweights lock up in Berlin. The Japanese legend knows very well that home town advantages exist, but he also has confidence that his experience advantage over the German will bear fruit.

"I know I am fighting on enemy territory," he recently told UFC.com's Ralph Welch.

"But MMA is a battle with many alternatives. Strategy is important. My experience will be a big advantage. I can choose my tactics in a level-headed manner. During the fight, even when I am in danger I can rely on my experience too."

Kawajiri has definitely been around the block, after over 15 years and over 40 fights as a professional The down side of so much experience is the age and slowing down that come with the years.
