6/22 Cage Force 07 - More Fights Announced

Tuesday, 10 June 2008

GCM have announced 4 more fights for Cage Force 07. We will finally get to see Antonio Carvalho fight in Cage Force, I am sure I am not the only one that have been looking forward to that. Carvalho is taking on Yuji Hoshino, who he was suppose to fight on April 5, this should be a very good fight. The other fight in the featherweight tournament is completely changed...

If we look back at the Welterweight and Lightweight tournament last year, the finalists from there have done very well:

Welterweight (will the UFC set up a re-match?)
Yoshiyuki Yoshida --> Signed with UFC, won his first fight
Dan Hardy --> Recently signed with UFC

Koutetsu Boku --> Fought in DREAM
Artur Oumakhanov --> Fought in DREAM

Will this year's tournament be as successful? They got off to a shakie start, but lets hope that is behind them now.

Fights added to June 22 card:
Featherweight Tournament Round 1:
Antonio Carvalho 10-3-0 vs. 13-7-7 Yuji Hoshino
Fanjin Son 4-2-0 vs. 7-2-2 Tomohiko Hori
