    official matches

    denis kang vs. yoshihiro akiyama
    dong sik yoon vs. fabio silva
    taiei kin vs. zelg galesik
    lee tae hyun vs. yoshihisa yamamoto
    kim min soo vs. minowaman
    kim dae won vs. marcelo garcia
    shungo oyama vs. carlos newton
    poai suganuma vs. bernard ackah

    finally denis kang fights again after he broke his hand on jung gyu choi's head. (ironically choi lost in this past spirit mc tournament to murata, murata will now face kang in an upcoming spirit mc event for the title). :bowdown:

    also the return of akiyama:bowdown:

    7 koreans fighting, probably one of the biggest mma event in korea :bowdown:

    garica's first mma appearance.:bowdown:

    carlos newton!! cant get enough of that guy.

    dong sik yoon fighting again, hopefully he'll pull off another sick armbar

    also an Everlast commercial starring denis kang from korea

    Crazy that its announced only 12 days prior.

    I don't recognize more than a couple of those Korean names. And the names are all kim, sik, or yoon. I'm going crazy over here :run:

    A lot of old vets though that are popular in the states, should be an interesting show.

    Thats how the Japanese do it, I remember we would wait like a month or a couple weeks before a Pride event before it was finalized and they would even have last minute changes sometimes too.
