“Shaolin” Returns! First Opponent Back Is Nagata

The final match of DREAM.8 was announced today. As rumored, Vitor “Shaolin” Ribeiro will finally return to the MMA ring as he takes on Olympic silver medalist Katsuhiko Nagata. “Shaolin” hasn’t fought since September of 2007 when he was defeated by J.Z.Calvan and got injured in the process.

    All right, I can dig it. I would’ve preferred Keita Nakamura, but I’ll settle for Nagata. It’s just good to see Shaolin back in action.
