Cage Force 2008 Tournament Participants

Wednesday 16 January 2008

Cage Force has announced the participants for this years tournament. Again, this looks like an awesome tournament. There are some exciting fighter that are new to Japan, and some experienced fighters making their debut in Cage Force. A very exciting mix of fighters and I cant wait to see how these tournaments turn out.

Featherweight Tournament Participants:
Antonio Carvalho 10-3-0
Armando (アルモンド・サンチェス) Sanchez 9-5-0
Adrian Pang 13-5-1
"Wicky" Akiyo Nishiura 6-2-1
Jong Man Kim 3-2-2
Daiki Ozaki 2-1-0
Yuji Hoshino 13-7-7
Takeshi Yamazaki 12-7-2

Bantamweight Tournament Participants:
Daichi Fujiwara 6-1-1
Taiyo Nakahara 8-6-0
Takeya Mizugaki 8-2-2
Paul McVeigh 12-4-0
+ 4 Fighters to be named later

Last years tournament was a huge success, this year seems to have the talent to follow that success. Cage Force is a great place for fighters to show their skills in the cage and it is a small step to the UFC.

Fighters to watch out for:
Paul McVeigh - He is undefeated at 61.2kg, and was undefeated in 2007. It will be interesting to see how he matches up against the Japanese fighters at home.
Antonio Carvalho - He would have to go into the tournament as a favorite, at least for my money. Having had only 2 fights last year, he will be very hungry going in to this. I am really looking forward to seeing him here.
Adrian Pang - An Australian fighter who has been to Japan on for a couple of fights already. Has a win over Nakahara who will compete in the bantamweight tournament.

For the Japanese fighters, there will be no easy fights here. "Wicky" and Mizugaki are 2 fighters I think can do very well here.
