Looks like it could be a damn good show. It's weird though, I thought that Lawler had an exclusive contract with Icon Sport? I guess it has expired?
The Welterweight GP opening round will take place at the Saitama Super Arena on June 4th, the second round will take place at the Nagoya Rainbow Hall on August 26th, and the final round will take place at the Yokohama Arena on November 5th.
The fights that I am most looking forward to...
Murilo Bustamante vs. Amar Suloev
Denis Kang vs. Murilo "Ninja" Rua
Hayato “Mach” Sakurai vs. Olaf Alfonso

Any Idea roughly how much this should cost (ppv)?:dunno:
