JZ Cavalcante Set to Face Kawajiri

Quote:


Two-time K-1 Hero's champion Gesias "JZ" Cavalcante has agreed to face off with Japanese stalwart Tatsuya Kawajiri at Dream 9 on May 26, according to sources in Cavalcante’s American Top Team camp.

Cavalcante (14-2-1) will look to get back on the winning track after his last two outings, which returned a no contest and his first loss in nearly four years. Both of those outcomes came against well-regarded Shinya Aoki, with the no contest coming as a result of illegal elbow strikes -- something ATT still contests.

The 25-year-old Brazilian will be venturing back into action after a nearly 13-month layoff, the longest of his five-year career.

Kawajiri, 31, has been a fixture in the Japanese MMA scene since 2000. He worked his way up the ladder from Shooto, where he held the 154-pound title, to Pride and now Dream.

Always ranked among the top lightweights in the world, Kawajiri (23-5-2) returned from a TKO loss to Eddie Alvarez in Dream’s lightweight grand prix last summer to dispatch Ross Ebanez by submission earlier this month.

The card is slated for Saitama, Japan.

Man it will be good to see back in action after the long lay-off and I hope the knee is fully healed up.

Damn this is a great matchup. Hard to make a choice here, I don't want to see either of these guys come out with an L here.

I'll go with Kawajiri. Guy has seriously heavy hands and a very competent ground game.

Plus he made such short work of my boy Ebanez who is actually a solid LW in his own right. I thought that it would be much closer.
