Raw Combat, a promotion based out of Calgary, Alberta, has announced that PRIDE and K-1 star Denis Kang will headline their upcoming event titled “Redemption” in a middleweight affair with UFC veteran Marvin Eastman.

Kang, a native of Vancouver, British Columbia, possesses a mixed martial arts record of 30-10-1. Kang holds victories over Akihiro Gono, Amar Suloev, Murilo Rua, and Mark Weir. Kang was last in action at Spirit MC 18: The Champion where he successfully defended his middleweight title against Jae Young Kim.

“We’re two athletic guys who like to get out there and swing. It’s going to be a very heated fight,” Kang explained in a press release. “There’s going to be a lot of desire by the both of us to win. I’m coming off a couple of losses and he is as well so we’re both going to be really hungry. Neither of us are going to take this fight lightly or take any shortcuts in training. That’s for sure.”

Eastman, a native of Las Vegas, Nevada, possesses a mixed martial arts record of 15-8-1. Eastman holds victories over Terry Martin, Rob Kimmons, Alan Belcher and Travis Wiuff. He last fought at The Ultimate Fighter 8 Finale losing to heavy handed Drew McFedries.

I think Kang takes this one rather easily, eastman has good hands but thats really about it, once the fight hits the ground kang will destroy him, i think it ends round 1, 3 or 4 minutes into it.

Love watching Denis fight, don't love watching him in this fight. I'd like to see Kang fight some top guys. Marvin always comes to put on a show. He has good wrestling, good muay thai. There's just no secret though that he's a 2nd tier fighter and Kang is up and down the top ten.

This should make for a killer fight. I hope they bring Denis to the UFC sometime. He'd make for a great fight against Anderson.
