First K-1 Vs. DREAM Fight With MMA Rules?! Funaki Vs. Sawayashiki?

Another rumor has come out. There seems to be something about Masakatsu Funaki vs. K-1 fighter Junichi Sawayashiki (the man who once defeated LeBanner) in a special issue of a New Years TV Guide. I’m not even sure if it has been released yet.

    Awwww, man… What a terrible match-up – master-grappler versus a chicken-fighter. Is there at least some story behind this fight?
    FEG should pay Volk Han (or some other RINGS/UWF star) enough to come out of retirement!

    The story is probably hey, we want Funaki to win another fight so we can feed him to someone that we need to make a star (or to Akiyama). It will be awesome to see Funaki hit an ankle pick and then tear Sawayashiki’s foot apart.

    I have no problem with Funaki kneebarring kickboxers for the next 5 years.

    I’ll be suprised if this fight will be longer than 60 seconds… This isn’t a Dynamite-class fight.
