Well Strawhats were on the island less than a few hours before they found out about mera mera. I don't think Mingo can keep it secret from anyone at this point. I gotta say, if all those people know about it, and marines have no clue, they have a shitty intelligence (as in spies, to avoid confusion). Then there's a possibility that Fujitora reported it himself. Or maybe there are some journalists who spread the news. I'm not talking about anything impossible here. Mera mera as a prize is a pretty big news, especially when you add in the previous owner and what his capture caused 2 years ago.

"We won't let Law and Strawhat do as they please...!! Yesterday we received an annoying report from G-5's Smoker...!! We'll consider the situation for one more day... I've already sent Fujitora. !!?"
Fujitora's objective is clearly to stop Luffy and Law. Fujitora has been sent out in advance for that purpose, while Marine HQ takes the day to fully assess the situation.
Do we know anything about Fujitora? Is he well known? Do only very few know who he is? He could be relatively unknown, hence being able to get by easily, or he's just that good at disguises. I don't think the blind man should be discounted, especially if he's very powerful.
I think his objectives are rather "wait for a day and collect information" rather than outright attack Law and Luffy.
cnet128 transelation: Sakazuki: I won't allow Law or Straw Hat to make any funny moves...!! / I received word from Smoker of G-5 just yesterday on that very subject...!! // Just give it one more day... / I've put Fujitora on the case.
To me it seem more like he is saying that the matter will be dealt with in one day, because Fujitora is on the case.
After seeing the way he acts Cavendish would make the perfect Shichibukai. He has fame and an undying hatred of the supernovas. Only thing left is to see how powerful he is. Rebecca is interesting in her own way especially since only her and Luffy seem to care about Kyros's statue. I wonder if Zoro is going to meet a hot chick too since the other members of the monster seem to have. Then in the new nakama section we can argue which of their ladies is going to join.
A long term prediction is that Momo will fight the little girl from Doflamingo's crew and get his butt handed to him.
Don't take that sentence so literary. "We" in that line doesn't have to mean Akainu and the guys, it can mean marines as a whole. Certainly someone who has become an admiral has enough authority to decide on things on his own. Akainu obviously trusts Fujitora enough to send him alone and let him deal with the situation. And it's naive to think Akainu would send Fujitora only to capture Luffy and Law on an island which is goverened by a former Shichibukai, who Smoker uncovered as a traitor to WG. I feel like I'm repeating myself.
im liking this arc. i think group B will be cavendish displaying his power and winning. group c will be luffy vs the flower brothers and funk brothers. group d will be rebecca vs the the moustache dude and she will lose.
It seems to me that rebecca is known for always losing since she is so weak. I think luffy will give her the mera mera fruit to make her strong.
It's strange that they say that Spartan guy bullied her, since Luffy just planted his face in the ground like he was nothing. Then again, maybe the difference between her and Luffy is that big.
"Bounty hunters turned government terrorists. Abdullah and Jeet"
lol didnt notice that before
So Oda takes an inspiration from everywhere..... i remember someone mentioning whitebeard being inspired by hulk hogan, not sure if that is actually the case.
Anyways, we will have only 4 winners from every group. We know Lucy and Jesus Burgess are agoing to be the two. Cavendish will lose i think so if we count rebecca as one from the other group, it looks like we still have room for one more contestant, who is yet to be revealed.
I would guess that person would be from the whitebeard pirates. It will add more spice to an already interesting lineup.
