The fight order for tomorrows Dynamite! event is announced. Not surprising that Masato gets the honor of fighting in the main event in his last fight.
I am surprised that the last fight to be announced, Mousasi vs. Goodridge is the co-main event though... I was expecting it to be Ishii vs. Yoshida, OR the clash of champions Aoki vs. Hirota.
This card is huge, 18 fights and a lot of the top fighters in Sengoku and DREAM. There are fighters I wish were on the card, I think especially in the lightweight division there are some big names missing.
I also think K-1 fans will be disappointed at this year's card. It has ended up being a MMA event, I think due to the cooperation with Sengoku. The result is 2 K-1 fights (not counting the Koshien tournament (which is really the undercard).
