Golyaev Enters K-1 MAX! Hunt Vs. Schilt II?
The opponent of Yoshihiro Sato at the K-1 MAX event in February will be SENGOKU veteran Sergey Golyaev. Of course Golyaev is being marketed as the man who defeated Gomi. It seems that K-1 fighters vs. MMA fighters will be one of the focuses of FEG in 2009. Add to this that FEG president Tanigawa has said that he wants a rematch between Kawajiri and Kozo in February and I imagine that the FEG dislike among hardcore Japanese MMA fans keeps growing.
Mark Hunt might rematch Semmy Schilt in 2009. However, this time it would be under MMA rules.
Team ZST fighters Masanori Kanehara and Tokuaki Ninomiya held an open training session today in preparation for their February 1st fights in Pancrase. Look for the winner of Kanehara and Kenji Arai to end up in the SENGOKU GP.
