We reported in June that Aleksander and Mirko were set to fight with Legend and there was also a report that Cro Cop and Ishii may fight.
Numerous sources are now indicating that Ishii will in fact meet Mirko in Japan at Inoki Bom Ba Ye. The fight will be a full on mixed martial arts fight and will most likely be held at Saitama Super Arena. We reported this week that Inoki has rights to Saitama, based purely on talk we had heard out of Japan.
CroCop first has to get past Aleksander Emelianenko, as the two will fight in a November bout.
The event will also likely mark the return of several of the normal faces around IGF’s MMA scene. Satoshi Ishii has made a name with the IGF defeating former UFC champions and fighters alike.
