DEEP is full of announcements these days, the second being the lightweight grand prix which will kick off at Tokyo Impact 2013. While no matches have been announced, the promotion did list the roster of participants for the event.
The grand prix will give fans a sneak peak into the next wave of talent that is Japanese MMA. The promotion went with this route and left the big names off the roster. Hardcore JMMA fans will recognize some names on the list, but most are new faces to fans.
