It looks like the Hironaka vs. Koyama fight will be for the Cage Force title.
Cage Force have announced some fights for their upcoming event in Differ Ariake. And I am really excited to see UFC veteran take on a more quiet performer in Yoshihiro Koyama. Koyama is one of the fighters on my banner (the other more recognizable) and he is IMO one of the best fighters in Japan that have not been picked up by a big organization. Koyama has not lost since February 2006, but this time he is facing a very experineced opponent and the winner here should be the #1 contender to Mizuto Hirota's Cage Force LW title.
Also, look out for the talented Masato Kobayashi on this card, he is 3-0 in his professional career and came 3rd in the 6th amature shooto freshman tournament's featherweight division.
