12/6 Cage Force 09 - RESULTS

Saturday 6 December 2008

Cage Force had their tournament finals today. I didnt make it there and had to rely on Sherdog's coverage, which this time was better than the Japanese!

Anyway, Cage Force now have a featherweight and a bantamweight champion! Before the tournaments started, I think few people were tipping Yuji Hoshino as the featherweight champion. But as the tournament progressed, he went in the the final as a slight favorite. He did deliver and I have been impressed with his performance. In the bantamweight division, I have to say that the favorite did deliver, I think Mizugaki was the favorite coming in and he has lived up to that. Now we have to see how long these champions stick around... There have been lots of changes this year, but these events always deliver entertaining fights.

I have updated the Preliminary fights as well. I am disappointed that Tsurumaki didn't get the win today either...
