Former PRIDE Middleweight Grand Prix runner-up Kazuo Misaki will make his Strikeforce debut against UFC veteran Joe Riggs when the organization returns to the famous Playboy Mansion in California for their second “Strikeforce at the Mansion” show on September 20th.

Strikeforce Vice President Mike Afromowitz officially announced the bout in a press release sent out to the media last night. After spending his entire career fighting for Japanese-based promotions, Misaki signed a two-fight deal with Strikeforce in March.

“I am looking forward to making my debut for Strikeforce at the Playboy Mansion, an incredible venue that is well-known throughout the world,” Misaki said. “Joe Riggs is a tremendous competitor. His style is aggressive like mine so I have no doubt that our fight will be an exciting and memorable one.”

I think your link is messed up, it sent me to a UFC 87 aftermath page. Anyways, is Riggs coming up in weight or Misaki going to 170?


*EDIT* 185. Just read it.

If I was a fighter I wouldn't accept a fight with Riggs.

You've got a 90% chance your opponent will pull out with injuries.

Incredible, awesome fight if it does indeed happen. With both fighters coming off injuries there's always the possibility of either man pulling out, but regardless, I'm really excited for this fight.

It's worse if you sign to Fight with Dave Terrell, His Nickname should be Mr.Glass, he never Fights and he has so much Talent
