D&S Fighters Around The World! Dida Is Out

Andre Dida Out Of K-1 MAX…DREAM Next?

From Tatame.com:

Dida explained the absence. “I started to train, but I had visa problem. I’m at Canada now and I can’t go out until March, so I called the president of the event telling that I wouldn’t be able to be there”, reveled the fighter, lamenting the happened.

“I’m very sad about that… I’m doing a very good work here with my brother and I can’t let it away. I’m a fighter and first of all is my career, but in the moment I’ll have to sacrifice that, but after March I’ll be prepared to come back to Japan”, affirmed André, who imagine that his next fight will be of MMA.

Last Weeks Fights

Yang Dong Yi got an impressive victory over Ryuta Noji in the first round of the HEAT Heavyweight GP at HEAT 8 last Sunday. He is now 4-0 with all wins by TKO.

SHOJI lost his second fight in a row on December 10th as the talented Takafumi Otsuka deefated him via unanimous decision.

SENGOKU Lightweight GP participant Bojan Kosednar lost his third fight in a row last week when Maciej Gorski defeated him via unanimous decision at KSW in Poland.

Jeff Monson got a big win last week as he defeated Ricco Rodriguez in the main event of MFA. Monson has stated since then that he will have a fight in SENGOKU in March (Pawel Nastula and Roger Gracie are also possible for this event). You can watch the fight here.

    He’s out of this MAX card because of the visa problems. So he says that his next fight will probably be MMA (=DREAM).

    Yeah, there was actually an article yesterday that Sapp was going to fight.
