Deep announced the first few matchups for the DEEP Cage Impact card. It looks like there will be a bit of a Japan vs. Guam theme.
Some very interesting fights announced, DEEP will look to get a light-heavyweight champion and the Bernard Ackah against Shunji Kosaka will have a central role in this (I am guessing it is an eliminator for a title fight).
It will be a big event for DEEP and a lot of their star fighters will participate. Announced to make his return is Hirohide Fujinuma who last fought back in DEEP 23, almost 4 years ago. If I am not mistaken the last fight ended in a very nasty armbar.
