Still hoping they sign Akiyama aswell.
lol keep dreaming man, there's no way Akiyama would leave DREAM/Japan for the UFC.


Also this is great news, but Denis Kang is not going to be a contender. He looked pretty good against crappy fighters in his last two matches, but hasn't looked great since he lost to Misaki.

Anyone else think it's funny that a year ago Dana White said "I love Denis Kang, but he's not ready for the UFC"?

Great, now all they need is Lawler, Cung Lee, Akiyama, Mousasi and Belfort, and the MW division will be complete (taking into account they refuse to get Linland or Shamrock).

I know it sounds like a lot, but it seems quite possible if you give it a year or 2.

On a side note the MW division is actually really strong, why do so many people think it's shit.

Forum Bets: 2-0

I like Kang a lot and I think a fantastic debut would be against Lawler (if the rumors are true that he will return to the UFC). Put it on the Jan card with Hendo, Franklin, and Shogun!



Gonzaga vs dos Santos - UFC on VS
Vera vs Jones - UFC on VS
Bibs vs Hansen - Dream 13
GSP vs Hardy - UFC 112
Gomi vs Florian - UFN 21
Nelson vs Struve - UFN 21

Kang is a solid fighter and will make a great gatekeeper for the MW division but I dont think he is the be all end all that alot of people have made him out to be,

I remember Dana saying that there was interest but he didn't consider Kang one of Pride's superstars.

Anyways my thoughts are like most of yours guys he most likely won't be a contender at first but I won't be surprised if he does someday.

I thought Kang was giving up fighting to become a model? He definitely hasn't look great recently. I hope he is remotivated and goes on a tear again!

So many fun match-ups for Kang. This is the best news I've heard all day.
