A Lightweight fight between Tatsuya Kawajiri and BJ Penn pupil Ross Ebanez was announced for DREAM.7 at an open training session in Tokyo today. Tatsuya Kawajiri, Mitsuhiro Ishida, and Hiroyuki Takaya all prepared for their March match-ups in front of the press at the JB Sports Gym.

Also announced today were a few K-1 World GP in Yokohama fights. In the MMA-related fights Remy Bonjasky will face Alistair Overeem, Badr Hari will rematch Errol Zimmerman, and Melvin Manhoef will participate in a 4-man tournament to decide the new K-1 Heavyweight champion (the title was stripped off of Badr Hari after the K-1 Finals debacle). He will face Chalid “Die Faust” in his first round fight and if he wins that one he will face either Ruslan Karaev or Gokhan Saki in the title fight.

    Awesome fight, overeem vs. bojansky. I still long for the day when kickboxing is the no. 1 sport in the world.
