Jerome Le Banner vs. Satoshii Ishii for Dynamite!!

We learned today from our good friends at that Jerome Le Banner and his team have finally signed a contract for Dynamite!! 2010. At Dynamite!! JLB will take on Olympic Gold Medalist Satoshi Ishii.

Last week, the team of JLB informed us that kickboxer Jerome Le Banner was about to face Tatsuya Mizuno December 31 next at Dynamite! 2010 . Since then, his manager wrote on the Facebook social network that The Banner had a choice between Mizuno and Olympic gold medalist in judo, Satoshi Ishii, as an opponent, for a MMA fight. wrote today that Sergei Kharitonov will face Tatsuya Mizuno in a MMA bout, indicating that Le Banner has opted for a fight against Ishii.


Four Fights Added to Dynamite!!

With Dynamite!! 2010 just a few weeks away, FEG has slowly been trickling out news for the fans and media. As always, things are handled in a hush-hush manner by FEG, but fight camps sometimes spill the goods before they do. FEG held a press conference on Friday to announce a few of the feature bouts for the upcoming card.

After featuring only one kickboxing bout last year (Masato vs. Andy Souwer), they have added a second K-1 rules bout to the card, in the form of K-1 Heavyweight Champion Kyotaro facing off with Gegard Mousasi. Mousasi has not fought in a kickboxing fight since December 2008 at Dynamite!! 2008 where he made short work of the now retired Musashi. Mousasi is the current DREAM Light Heavyweight Champion and has held the promotion's Middleweight Championship as well as Strikeforce's Light Heavyweight Championship. Kyotaro poses a unique challenge for the Dutch kickboxer, as Kyotaro has speed, power and precision on his side.

The colorful Kazuhisa Watanabe will return to MMA action squaring off against Hideo Tokoro, with both men looking to add another much-needed win on their records. Another fight that was long-rumored is now confirmed, as Jason "KC Bandit" High returns to DREAM for the first time since DREAM.10 to face off with Hayato "Mach" Sakurai. Sakurai's back is against the wall against the younger High and High is looking to work his way back into the major leagues after a disappointing UFC debut this year.

Everyone's favorite Super HULK Champion, Ikuhisa Minowa, known as Minowaman, makes his return to the DREAM ring for the first time since his loss to Olympic Judoka Satoshi Ishii at DREAM.16. Minowa's last fight at DEEP 50 saw him get back into the win column with an armbar on Chang Hee Kim, providin some momentum against another Olympic Judoka, Hiroshi Izumi. Izumi is a Olympic Silver medalist from Athens in 2004 and fights for the first time away from the SRC banner.
