Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

A new fight has been announced for FieLDS K-1 Premium 2007 Dynamite!! on NYE. Rani Yahya returns to Hero’s since his loss to J.Z. Calvan in the 2006 Hero’s Middleweight Tournament. Between that time and now he has gone 2-1 in MMA competition with two of those fights being at the WEC, one of them for the WEC Bantamweight title which he lost by unanimous decision.

His opponent will be 2005 Hero’s Middleweight Tournament Champion Norifumi “KID” Yamamoto who in his last fight defeated Bibiano Fernandes by unanimous decision.

Yahya is a very good grappler. He won the ADCC Tournament in the 66 kg class this year. Yamamoto had some trouble in his last fight with Bibiano who is also a very good grappler, but Bibiano is physically stronger than Yahya.
