New Sherdog Rankings

Saturday, 13 October 2007

The Sherdog Rnakings for October, the fighters in Japan are:

Middleweight
7. (7) Denis Kang Signed with HERO’s, will fight in HERO’s in Korea Oct. 28

Welterweight
8. (8) Shinya Aoki Shooto champ, no fight set up currently. Free agent, will he take up JZ’s Challenge and fight in Hero’s? He is undoubtedly wanted by DEEP and Shooto, in addition to the new “J-Rock” organization.

Lightweight
1. (1)Takanori Gomi Rumored to join a new organization. A press conference is due to be held on Monday where this organization will be presented.
3. (8) Gesias "JZ" Calvancanti moved up in the rankings after winning the Hero’S tournament in September.
4. (3)Tatsuya Kawajiri Former Shooto fighter, future uncertain. Rumored to return to the ring Nov. 8 on the Shooto card
5. (4)
Vitor "Shaolin" Ribeiro
7. (6) Mitsuhiro Ishida Privous Pride fighter, future uncertain. My guess is that he will return to his roots in Shooto, or go to HERO’s
8. (8) Joachim Hansen Now a free agent, a chance for HERO’s. He would have lots of options now.

Featherweight
1. (1) Akitoshi Tamura will fight on Shooto’s supercard Nov. 8 against a yet to be named opponent.
3. (3)"Lion" Takeshi Inoue Due to fight Nov. 8 Shoot tournament.

7. (8) Yoshiro Maeda Pancrase fighter. No fights set
