Gegard Mousasi at Strikeforce

Gegard Mousasi at Strikeforce

Gegard Mousasi is returning to Japan for a New Year’s Eve fight on Dream’s year-end Dynamite!! 2010 fight card. The former Strikeforce and Dream mixed martial arts champion, however, will fight in a K-1 kickboxing rules bout.

Dream recently announced several additions to its New Year’s Eve extravaganza, including Mousasi’s bout against Kyotaro.

Mousasi has fought in kickboxing bouts before. In fact, he is undefeated with a 4-0 record, which includes K-1 rules and Muay Thai rules bouts. He last fought under K-1 rules at Dynamite!! 2008, where he defeated famed Japanese kickboxer Musashi by TKO.

Kyotaro is a decorated kickboxer with an 18-4 record. Although he is 2-3 in his last five bouts, Kyotaro has defeated the likes of Melvin Manhoef, Peter Aerts, and Jerome LeBanner, whom Mousasi had originally expected to face this New Year’s Eve.

Also added to Dynamite!! 2010 are bouts pitting Ikuhisa Minowa against Izumi Hiroshi, Hayato “Mach” Sakurai versus Jason High, and Hideo Tokoro against Watanabe Kazuhisa.
