Aoki vs. “Jienotsu”, Le Banner vs. Mizuno and Thomson vs. Kawajiri at Dynamite!!

DREAM lightweight champion, Shinya Aoki and K-1 World MAX 2010 -70kg Japan tournament winner Yuichiro “Jienotsu” Nagashima have been booked for the December 31st Dynamite!! 2010 show in Saitama, Japan. The lightweights will fight alternating rounds of MMA and K-1 rules, giving each man a real advantage in their specialist areas.

In other news, K-1 legend, Jerome Le Banner has been confirmed to face DREAM light heavyweight Grand Prix finalist, Tatsuya Mizuno in a strictly MMA bout. The French heavy hitter hasn’t been involved in an MMA bout since 2009 when he defeated Jimmy Ambriz.

The other fight announced earlier today features former Strikeforce lightweight champion, Josh Thomson who will go head-to-head with Japanese stand-out, Tatsuya Kawajiri in what should be an exciting back and forth battle.
