Izumi To MMA Rumors Resurface! Final Judo Match In April?

There are once again reports that Athens 2004 silver medalist in Judo, Hiroshi Izumi, will make the transition to MMA. Izumi was rumored to participate at the January 4th SENGOKU event but nothing came off it. Now, the rumor has resurfaced and it is being reported that he has already started training MMA and that it is expected that he will announce his transition to MMA at the All-Japan Judo Championships (in April I think), which in that case would be his last Judo tournament.

    I think that zviadauri vs izumi will be a intresting match, like takimoto vs yoon and yoshida vs ogawa was.. but nothing comes of those georgians, arent they waiting too long??

    Yeah, they already met in the Olympic finals, so it would be nice to see a rematch in MMA.

    I haven’t heard/read anything about the Georgians. Hopefully they’ll start participating soon.
