9/12 Cage Force - Fights Announced

Friday 4 September 2009

It looks like the Hironaka vs. Koyama fight will be for the Cage Force title.

Cage Force have announced some fights for their upcoming event in Differ Ariake. And I am really excited to see UFC veteran take on a more quiet performer in Yoshihiro Koyama. Koyama is one of the fighters on my banner (the other more recognizable) and he is IMO one of the best fighters in Japan that have not been picked up by a big organization. Koyama has not lost since February 2006, but this time he is facing a very experineced opponent and the winner here should be the #1 contender to Mizuto Hirota's Cage Force LW title.

Also, look out for the talented Masato Kobayashi on this card, he is 3-0 in his professional career and came 3rd in the 6th amature shooto freshman tournament's featherweight division.

Light: Kuniyoshi Hironaka 14-6-0 vs. 12-2-1 Yoshihiro Koyama
Light: Yasunori Kanehara 2-5-2 vs. 2-2-0 Hiroki "KG Shinto" Kuga
Feather: Wataru Miki 14-9-3 vs. 6-6-2 Tomonori Taniguchi
Feather: Wataru Takahashi 8-11-4 vs. 3-3-0 Masayoshi "Randleman" Ichikawa
Bantam: Masato Kobayashi 3-0-0 vs. 3-2-0 Daisuke Sugishima
Bantam: Hirokazu Nishimura 3-3-1 vs. 1-4-0 Yoshihiro Matsunaga
Valkyrie Feather: Kyoko Takabayashi 9-4-0 vs. 5-7-0 Akiko Naito

Preliminary Fights:
Welter: Yosuke Yaguchi 0-1-0 vs. Daisuke Teramoto
Feather: Tokuei Masaki 0-1-0 vs. 0-2-1 Toru Yoshikawa
Feather: Yoji Saito vs. Katsunori Tsuda
Light: Kazuki Tokutomei vs. Shin Fujimoto

GCM just announced that Hirota will come back to defend his title soon. They're having a press conference on Monday. I'm guessing you're right and they'll announce it's him vs. the winner of Hironaka/Koyama.

My bad - Hirota is GIVING UP his title, and the Hironaka/Koyama fight will be 5 rounds for the vacant belt.
