Great Fights - Cage Force 04 Welterweight Tournament Semi-Finals

Friday 15 August 2008

Ok, I admit it... I am restless, and want to post something.

BUT, the Cage Force tournaments last year really did offer some great fights. In the welterweight tournament both the finalists have now signed with the UFC. The reason is clear, they are great fighters. Unfortunately, the final was disappointing and I am sure Dan Hardy would love a re-match in the UFC.

For those who missed the semi-finals, here they are.

First Dan Hardy vs. Hidetaka Monma.
Dan Hardy is scheduled to fight Japanese star Akihiro Gono at UFC 89.

The other semi-final in last year's Cage Force tournament was Yoshiyuki Yoshida vs. Akira Kikuchi. Yoshida is already signed with the UFC and won his first UFC fight at UFC 84. He is scheduled to fight Karo Parisyan at UFC 88 on September 6.

I hope there will be more things to write about soon... The results for the DEEP events will be here, at least.

I want Wicky vs Yamazaki in the final, but Hoshino looked beastly at FW vs Carvalho so it should be good! Also pulling for old man Jackal to win the BW tourney because his first fight with Tokoro is epic!
