Misaki vs. Manhoef scheduled

A bout pitting Kazuo Misaki against Melvin Manhoef has been added to the Dec. 31 Fields Dynamite!! event at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan. It is the latest inter-promotional bout pitting a Sengoku fighter (Misaki) against a Dream fighter (Manhoef) for the New Year’s Eve co-promotion.

Misaki (22-9-2) is the No. 7 ranked middleweight fighter in the world. This bout will be his third of the year. Misaki lost to Jorge Santiago in January then bounced back with a victory over Kazuhiro Nakamura

at Sengoku Ninth Battle in August.

Manhoef (23-6-1) was on a five-fight winning streak before hitting a rough patch of 1-2 in his last three outings. Losses to Strikeforce champion Gegard Mousasi and former WEC champion Paulo Filho sandwiched a stunning knockout of Mark Hunt.

Manhoef was a leading candidate to face Robbie Lawler at the recent Strikeforce event on Dec. 19 in San Jose, Calif. A veteran of the Japanese fight scene, he opted for New Year’s Eve in Japan instead.

If unscathed following

the fight with Misaki, Manhoef could be scheduled as an opponent for Lawler when Strikeforce lands in Florida. Lawler is currently in negotiations with the promotion for a Jan. 30 bout in the Sunshine State.

Olympic Gold Medal judoka Satoru Ishii makes his mixed martial arts debut against fellow Gold Medalist Hidehiko Yoshida in the main event at Dynamite!! The event is scheduled to air live in the United States on HDNet at 3 a.m. ET / Midnight PT.

Good addition. I have Misaki by TD and sub.

This NYE card is looking great.
