New Fights Announced! One Choi In Each

Two Heavyweight fights were announced today for the year end/start cards. For Dynamite!! the already known Mirko CroCop vs. Choi Hong Man fight was officially announced and for the SENGOKU card, Dave Herman will make his debut against PRIDE & SENGOKU veteran Choi Mu Bae. The CroCop vs. Choi will be fought under MMA rules.

Update: CHM is doing special training under Yoon Dong Sik in Korea for this fight.

Update #2: 4-5 fights left to be announced for the Dynamite!! card. These fights will include Yukio Sakaguchi (Kenji Sakaguchi’s older brother), Minowaman, Hayato “Mach” Sakurai, and a foreigner.

Yukio Sakaguchi vs. TBA (Andy Ologun rumored)
Hayato “Mach” Sakurai vs. TBA (Nick Diaz? Jake Shields?)
Minowaman vs. TBA (Errol Zimmerman rumored)
Foreigner vs. TBA
Maybe TBA vs. TBA

Update #3: KID will 100% not participate.

Update #4: WVR didn’t have a press conference today. They might have trouble putting together a card or they might be trying to get some big names and they want everything to be 100% before they announce it. They need something big now, like Ogawa vs. Fujita and/or Akiyama vs. whoever. We saw that Takasu’s blog was right about Sakaguchi, is it right about the Akiyama hint too?

    Sengoku is so random and so shitty.

    I hope someone takes care of Hong-Man. Being embarrassed by Cro Cop is not going to help his depression.

    In the previous press conference they said that the last six matches will be announced on thursday or friday. Today they added only one fight and as far as I can see no date was mentioned about the announcement of remaining fights. Do you know when we can expect them to finalise the card?

    They didn’t mention any date/day at the press conference from what I read. However, I would guess tomorrow or early next week.
