According to Inside MMA Kazuo Misaki has signed a two fight deal with Strikeforce.
Hopes of Misaki joining the DREAM MW GP and a possible rematch with Akiyama after their controversial first bout, are now left in serious doubt.

But fighters who sign with strikeforce often fight elsewhere with non exclusive contracts .... why is there so much doubt he wont be in dream mwgp?!?

Most fighters under strikeforce dont have exclusive contracts.

This is a good signing for him and fans. There are a few good matchups for him there and he probaly has a non-exclusive contract so he can fight elsewhere.
