4/5 DREAM 8 - Dong Sik Yoon's Replecement is....

Saturday 4 April 2009

This is now official!

FEG have not officially confirmed this, but Sanae Kikuta has put it up on his blog with a picture that confirmes it. It is not Melvin Manhoef this time, but Grabaka's Riki Fukuda.

Props to Nightmare of Battle again for finding this!

Riki Fukuda is a fighter that is very familiar for fans of Japanese MMA, he does have 2 fights for Elite XC and a strong 13-4 record. If he has a weakness, it is that lately he has not been able to finish his fights. His last fight he put away Sakurai in 45 seconds, but Sakurai did not look fit coming in.

Fukuda should be able to put up a good fight, and I look forward to seeing "Ninja" back in action!
