28-08-2004, 00:01
Pancrase boss Ozaki announced that most of his Pancrase fighters will be involved on the UFC 12/12 Tokyo show.
Ikuhisa Minowa, Sanae Kikuta, Yoshiki Takahashi, and others (if Yuki Kondo can survive his 11/7 Tokyo Bay NK Hall fight, he wants to be on the 12/12 show) will be involved.
In addition, negotiations are happening with Genki Sudo, Kaoru Uno, and Tsuyoshi Kohsaka. Will it be Pancrase/Japan vs. UFC/America for the undercard?
So... if you're to believe the Japanese, the following is occuring: The UFC show will happen on 12/12 in Tokyo (not in Osaka, not anywhere else), the local promoters are from DSE, and the majority of the Japanese fighters will be from Pancrase facing off against Americans. To top it off, the top two fights on the card will be Tito Ortiz vs. Vitor Belfort and Andrei Orlovski vs. Frank Mir for the Heavyweight Title.
