FEG have today announced the opponent for Alistair Overeem for the this Sundays event in Osaka. James Thompson have been rumored to take the fight, and that has now been confirmed.
Both these fighters are popular with the Japanese crowd, and I think it will be an entertaining fight.
This card has had some setbacks and are missing a few of the fighters that were announced to participate. FEG have had to face some critizism for that, but I think and hope this card delivers.
The card should now be complete, with 9 fights.
Because this card is so close to Sengoku 11, I have added a servey, which card do you think is better? (on the right)
Paulo Filho is off the card, no announcement has been made official as to who is replacing him, but the rumor is that it will be Tarec Saffiedine.
