DREAM Vs. K-1! Kawajiri And Mousasi Return

Two new fights were announced for Dynamite!! today. Tatsuya Kawajiri will make his K-1 debut as he takes on K-1 MAX veteran Takeda Kozo and DREAM Middleweight champion Gegard Mousasi will take on K-1 veteran Musashi in a K-1 rules fight.

Update: FEG President Tanigawa said that it is up to the doctor whether Masato will participate on NYE or not.

Update #2: Mousasi wants Musashi to change his ring name to his real name, Akio Mori, if Mousasi is victorious. In Japanese, Mousasi and Musashi are pronounced the same (Mu-sa-shi).

Update #3: Dynamite!! will be aired on NYE in Japan from 19:00 to 23:54. Before that on the same channel, there will be a Boxing match from 18:00 to 19:00. Takefumi Sakata will defend his WBA Flyweight title against Thai Denkaosan Kaovichit.

Update #4: Tanigawa also said that he wants to construct more K-1 X DREAM fights from this year. He said that fighters such as Badr Hari and Semmy Schilt want to challenge MMA from the K-1 side. Any such announcements will have to wait until after the K-1 WGP Finals in December.

    Mousasi vs Musashi?! Under K-1 rules?! I know, it’s funny – spelling of their names in Japanese is the same, but come on… FEG should pit Gegard against some other champion, like Akiyama or someone.

    Mousasi said himself that he want to test his skills in K-1. FEG is just doing what he wants.

    Mousasi said himself that he wants to test his skills in K-1 after he won the MW GP. FEG is just doing what he asked for.

    Gegard has good boxing skills but i think Mousashi can withstand those skills with his experience in k-1. It would be more intresting Mousasi vs Akiyama ore something like that but on MMA rules…

    Akiyama vs. Mousasi is a horrible fight for NYE. It only appeals to hardcore fans, and that is not the audience FEG is aiming at. Akiyama vs. Aoki is what they will do.

    I think this K-1 vs. MMA crossover will result in Mirko and Alistair not fighting. I could see Mirko vs. Schilt and Alistair vs. Hari.

    The Sudo picture is just about him being the commentator for the show, along with Kohsaka.
