12/01 Cage Force 05 - Tournament Finals

Wednesday 28 November 2007

After the dissapointement of not being able to use Kitaoka in this event, they have found an opponent for Mizuto Hirota.

This will be a very good event!

The hightlights:

-Urushitani: 3 Career losses, not lost in 3 years.
-Kenji Osawa: Rightfully ranked amoung the best Bantamweight fighters inthe world. BUT is currently on a 2 fight losing streak. Needs to redeemhimself here!

Welterweight final:
-Dan Hardy: A very talented British fighter, on a 5 fight winningstreak. His semi-final win was very impressive.
-Boku: Not lost in more than 4 years, in that period he has 10 fightswith a record of 9 wins and 1 Draw. Beaten fighters like Hermes Francaand DEEP standout Ryan Bow.

Lightweight Final:
-Yoshida: On a 7 fight winning streak (over 2 years), none of them havegone the distance. Very impressive semi-final against Akira Kikuchi.
-Oumakhanov: Has a 6-1 record, only loss to Andre "Dida" Amade. In myopinion had the weakest semi-final, more luck than skill that he won.Was very impressive before his loss to "Dida".
