Ishii Debut Likely At SENGOKU XI! Heavyweight GP In 2010?

It seems that Satoshi Ishii’s debut is likely to happen at SENGOKU XI on November 7th. Ishii has expressed that he wants to have his debut on August 2nd but WVR PR Kokuho is careful about it and don’t want him to rush.

Kokuho also acknowledged Nakao’s appeal for a Heavyweight GP yesterday and said that he definitely wants to hold one. The article mentions Josh Barnett, Antonio Silva, Hidehiko Yoshida, Yoshihiro “KISS” Nakao, and Kazuyuki Fujita.

In today’s Tokyo Sports it says that SENGOKU will hold a Heavyweight GP in the summer of 2010. While Tokyo Sports isn’t always the most reliable paper, summer 2010 isn’t a surprising time for a GP if they want to get Ishii in there.

    I’m just glad we’re going to get to see Ishii sometime this year. To be honest, I really don’t know what to make of a HW GP.

    I’m sure Sengoku and DREAM will each run Heavyweight GPs next year, as Heavyweight and Light Heavyweight are the only two weight classes that they haven’t done yet.

    Sengoku could definitely pull off a Light Heavyweight GP next year, but seeing as how DREAM hasn’t had a single fight in that division yet, I wonder if they could manage.
