3/8 DREAM 7 - Kawajiri Fighting

Friday 27 February 2009

Tatsuya Kawajiri is one of the bigger stars in Japan at the moment, his KO win on NYE against Kozo Takeda with K-1 rules was certainly noticed (along with the other upsets under K-1 rules). This time he will compete under MMA rules, and against a very experienced opponent.

This time Kawajiri is taking on the American Ross Ebanez from BJ Penns gym. He is a veteran of ROTR and EliteXC, other than that, I know very little but I am sure that will change soon.

Both fighters have faced Eddie Alvarez, and lasted almost to the second as long (7:35 for Kawajiri and 7:32 for Ebanez).

With just over 1 week to the event, I think the card is just about complete now.
Ross Ebanez 19-6-0 vs. 22-5-2 Tatsuya Kawajiri
