12/31 Yarennoka - Fights Added

Thursday, 13 December 2007

Yarennoka has made 2 more fights official today.

Previously announced fights were:
Shinya Aoki 11-2-0 vs. 14-1-1 J.Z. Calvan
Hayato Sakurai 30-7-2 vs. 14-8-4 Hidehiko Hasegawa
Gilbert Melendez 13-0-0 vs. 14-3-1 Mitsuhiro Ishida
Tatsuya Kawajiri 19-4-2 vs. 11-6-0 Luiz Azeredo

Today these fights were announced:
Fedor Emelianenko 26-1-0 vs. 1-0-0 Choi Hong Man
Kazuo Misaki 18-8-2 vs. 10-1-0 (1NC) Yoshihiro Akiyama

That's right, Fedor will fight Hong Man. I am not excited about this, especially after the performance Hong Man put in at the K-1 GP Finals. This should be an easy fight for Fedor, but you never know. Hong Man has a lot of power and cause some problems.

The other fight is a really exciting fight. Misaki holds wins over fighters such as Dan Henderson, Phil Baroni and Denis Kang. All these by decision, but he is a top quality fighter. Akiyama is of course the guy who Koed Denis Kang in his long awaited comeback in October. Akiyama's only loss came to Jerome LeBanner in 2005.

Still listed as a participant (despite saying he would not be able tocompete):

Ricardo Arona (?) 13-5-0
