Hero’s GP Champion Vs. Pride GP Champion! Akiyama Vs. Misaki Set!!

Two new Yarennoka! fights have been announced today in a press conference. Fedor Emelianenko’s NYE opponent has finally been announced and it will be K-1 veteran Choi Hong Man who was strongly rumored these recent weeks. In the second fight two GP champions will meet, Hero’s 2006 LHW GP Champion Yoshihiro Akiyama will take on Pride 2006 WW GP Champion Kazuo Misaki. This is an excellent fight and It’s great that FEG are sending some fighters to this event.

Choi Hong Man recently lost to Jerome Le Banner in the 2007 K-1 GP Finals Quarterfinals by decision, but he didn’t receive much damage so it seems that he is good to go on NYE. Misaki lost his last fight against Frank Trigg when Pride made their U.S. debut, he complained about the Vegas environment (something about the air) after the fight, but he can’t complain now as he is back in Japan.

Update: A new rumored fight according to tatame, Murilo Bustamante vs. Makoto Takimoto.
