Gegard Mousasi (24-2-1), winner of DREAM's 2008 Middleweight World Grand Prix, has officially signed to face four-time K-1 Japan Grand Prix Champion, Musashi (49-28-5-1), in a K-1 rules match at the Fields Dynamite!! supershow on December 31 at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan.
Mousasi won the DREAM Middleweight Grand Prix with a stunning first round knockout of Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza back in September. He reached the finals after submitting the dangerous K-1 striker Melvin Manhoef in the first round of the semifinals.
The "Young Vagabond" is an extremely talented fighter and in addition to riding an eleven-fight win streak, is also a former amateur boxing champion and has served as a striking coach for current WAMMA heavyweight champion Fedor Emelianenko.
He'll have his hands full however against the Japanese warrior. Musashi is a former WAKO Heavyweight Muay Thai Champion and two-time K-1 World Grand Prix finalist. He last appeared at K-1 Fields World GP 2008 and dropped a disappointing decision to Brazil's Ewerton Teixeira.
Musashi has a staggering 83 fights under his belt and isn't going to be intimidated by Mousasi. Don't expect this one to go to a decision.
Fields Dynamite!! is the New Year's Eve supershow featuring a smorgasbord of fighters under the umbrella of Fighting & Entertainment Group (FEG) coming together on one night to try and kick the crap out of each other.
Featuring participants from DREAM, K-1, K-1 MAX and K-1 Koshien, Fields Dynamite!! is going to have a wide variety of fighting styles and compelling match-ups, and could feature as many as twenty fights.
Stay tuned as this massive card continues to come together.
