First round:

Bob Sapp vs. Ikuhisa Minowa
Jan Nortje vs. Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou

Hong-Man Choi vs. Jose Canseco

I am really not sure what i should think about that…
Really, look at that fight: Hong-Man Choi vs. Jose Canseco ?!?!

man dream really was on the right way with quality fights.

Is this their hopeless try to get more PPVs ?

OH shit…I thought this was a joke at first.

Jose Canseco!?? WTF…haha.

Mousasi vs. Hunt will be interesting. I wonder if he’s bulked to HW already sans Overeem…lol.

After Vai Sikahema beat his ass, I guess Jose wants to go after someone a little slower. lol…

This is crazy, Canseco must really need money. He could get hurt badly

I guess Bonaduce wasnt enough

I would pay to see Canseco get his ass beat. Lucky for us it’s free. Hopefully HMC brutilizes him for awhile before knocking him out.

Sapp vs. Minowa is going to be a slaughter as well. That should be mildly interesting.

Wow, crazy card.

Looking forward to seeing Jacare in action again. I thought he had the middleweight touney in the bag til he got nailed with the up-kick from hell!

Jacare-Miller II should be entertaining.

I really don’t see how anyone could allow Canseco to get in the ring with a professional fighter. He’s going to get destroyed and could suffer a serious injury.

So, rather than pulling the matches out of a hat a la Pride, they’re now pulling them out of Pandora’s box.

i’m rooting for minowa to do some crazy leg locks on sapp :slight_smile:

I cant imagine what Jose Canseco is thinking. Maybe he woke up one day and thought: "man if Brock can do this i can become a UFC champ too!! But first lets fight this lame Hong Man choi… "

Seems like Canseco does not need a beginners class or start with an amateur fight. He starts with fighting a 7’2 freak …

But Big_Boss is right there are plenty of quality fights on the card too.

maybe Dream becomes the EliteXC of Japan…
