Bob Sapp, Sergei Kharitonov and Jerome LeBanner official for FieLDS Dynamite!! on Dec. 31


Love him or hate him, Bob Sapp is still the hardest working can in show business.

"The Beast" will return to the upcoming Dynamite!! event in Japan, facing former sumoist Shinichi Suzukawa in an "IGF Special Rules" bout which is a fancy way of saying there will be no gloves and no closed-fist strikes during the contest.

Also confirmed for the Dec. 31 supershow in Saitama is Jerome LeBanner, who once again crosses over to MMA after falling short at the K-1 World Grand Prix Final 16 20101in Seoul earlier this year.

Opposing him is the usually non-committal Olympic medalist Satoshi Ishii.

Rounding out the noteworthy additions to the New Year's Eve card is former PRIDE slugger Sergei Kharitonov. "Kharit-top" will throw hands with Dream light heavyweight Tatsuya Mizuno.
