Japan-MMA is reporting that these are the tournament participants...

HAYATO
Andy Ologun
TATSUJI
Yuya Yamamoto
Taishin Kohirumaki
Hinata Watanabe
Nagajima☆Jienotsu☆Juichiro

This should be a good tournament again. Hinata is a very talented fighter making his K-1 debut. The 22 year old went 4-0 in RISE last year, beating HAYATO in the process.

For me, the favorite would be Yasuhiro Kido or Andy Ologun, but it will be a close tournament and anything can happen.

Announced as fighting outside the tournament is Andre Dida. It will be interesting to see how he does. MMA fighters have done very well against K-1 fighters lately, and though Dida might be considered more an K-1 fighter than Kawajiri, it will be interesting to see here. Kozo Takeda will of course be looking to redeem himself, regardless of opponent.
