Japanese MMA Magazines! Yuji Hoshino To SENGOKU?

The contents of the new issues of the Japanese MMA magazines are out (Kamipro, Gonkaku, and Kakutogi Tsuushin). Below are some of the interesting ones.

Will Dynamite!! and Ishii/Yoshida have a dual broadcast?

FEG’s Tanigawa: “K-1 won’t go bankrupt you know~~~!”

Gomi (VTJ09): “This might be my last fight in Japan.”

Cage Force champion Yuji Hoshino in SENGOKU.

Ryo Chonan to DREAM? SENGOKU? or…

Why is Satoshi Ishii studying traditional karate?
Satoshi Ishii with the Japan Karate Association (8th dan Masahiko Tanaka & 7th dan Takenori Imura)

Will the theme of SENGOKU’s new name be “the strongest man”?

WVR PR Kokuho (New Years): “I definitely want Gomi to appear. Kitaoka will also receive an offer.”

Will 22 year old Korean Parky challenge the cage of DREAM?!
“I want to fight Kikuno and Melendez. Kikuno’s crescent kick will be his weak point as well.”

DREAM.12 will be in a cage. DREAM EP Sasahara: “I don’t think that an 8-sided cage (octagon) is the global standard.”

New DEEP champion Takafumi Otsuka: “At the DREAM cage event I want top fight a name (someone known) at 63 kg.”

    So it’s official then…DREAM.12 in a cage. Should be interesting.

    Yoshiro Maeda vs. Takafumi Otsuka maybe? I can dig it.

    So do we know if it’s something to continue or a one time thing? It would kill me to see DREAM in a cage on a full time basis.

    I think it’s a one time thing or sometimes, not always. I don’t think they’d ever put a cage on a prime time card.

    Cage is a lame idea. i dont care what shape it is, a cage is a cage.

    any idea around when they will start to announce the fights for dream.12

    Thanks for the reply NOB.
    Really not a cage fan and hope this is a curiosity thing.

    How does the japanese public react to the differences cage/ring?
    I think one of the smaller japanese orgs has cages, no?
