Japanese legend 'Minowaman' schedules 100th career fight for ROAD FC 013

I know it is a Korean event, but he is a Japanese legend so I felt this section fits.

Quote:
Japanese legend Ikuhisa "Minowaman" Minowa (56-35-8) will fight for the 100th time as a professional later this year.

Officials from South Korea's ROAD FC organization today announced Minowa will face an opponent yet to be named at ROAD FC 013, which takes place Oct. 12 at J.H. Park Stadium in Gumi, South Korea.

Fighting professionally since 1996, Minowa tasted victory in just two of his first 14 pro contests. At 37 years old, the 5-foot-9 Minowa has notably competed in more than 20 openweight matchups, routinely taking on massive opponents who enjoyed incredible size advantages. Most notably, Minowa was the shocking winner DREAM's 2009 Super Hulk grand prix, where "Minowaman" claimed a tournament title with wins over Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou, Hong Man Choi and Bob Sapp.

Past Minowa opponents also inclue Phil Baroni, Murilo Bustamante, Paulo Filho, Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic, Don Frye, Masakatsu Funaki, Ryan Gracie, Kendall Grove, Satshi Ishii, Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, Kimo Leopoldo, Chris Lytle, Semmy Schilt, Alexander Shlemenko, Wanderlei Silva, Kazushi Sakuraba, Evan Tanner and Gilbert Yvel, among others.

The passionate support for Minowa in his home country evolved from his willingness to fight any opponent and offer a game effort, regardless of the result of the contest.

Among his 56 career wins, Minowa boast 40 submission victories.

The complete ROAD FC 013 lineup currently includes:
• Lightweight champ Yui Chul Nam vs. Takasuke Kume
•Andrews Nakahara vs. Jung Hwan Cha
• Bae Young Kwon vs. Kosuke Umeda
• Young Bok Gil vs. Mu Gyum Choi
•Issei Tamura vs. Min Jung Song
•Riki Fukuda vs. TBA
•Ikuhisa Minowa vs. TBA
• Yun Jun Lee vs. Makoto Kamaya

This reminds me of Dan Severn's 100th win.

For the special occasion they should let Minowaman fight a flyweight.
