12/01 Cage Force 05 - Tournament Finals

Saturday 17 November 2007

Cage Force will hold their tournament finals in December, this will be the event of the year for cage fighting fans in Japan. GCM has managed to get together a very good card this event.

Some of the hightlights:
-Urushitani, one of the world’s absolutely best flyweight fighters will return to the cage (he has not fought in a cage since 2005).
-Kenji Osawa, the Shooto standout was ranked #7 on Sherdog’s latest Bantamweight ranking.
-Pancrase veteran, Kitaoka returns to the cage, he has not fought in a cage since 2001. I will be interesting to see how he adjusts.
-Of course the highlight fights in this event are the tournament finals, Yoshida vs. Dan Hardy and Boku vs. Oumakhanov.
