Olympic Judo Gold Medalist Ishii Makes the Change

Monday, 6 October 2008

There has been a lot of speculation around whether Satoshi Ishii will fight Fedor on NYE. There is no word on that, but he has gone out today and said that he is not planning to participate in the London Olympics in 4 years. The reason, he wants to try MMA.

DREAMs Sasahara has gone out and said Ishii will NOT fight on NYE, so I guess that leaves it open for even more speculation. Will he fight with Sengoku or DREAM? If you look at the organizations, Sengoku definitely has more Judo fighters... But Ishii seems to be more connected with DREAM...

Ishii is currently injured and will not compete in the Judo world championships
