Dong Sik Yoons replacement will be Grabaka's, Riki Fukuda. Fukada has fought twice in EliteXC and took Joey Villasenor to a split decision. Recently, he has been fighting in DEEP and beat Ryuta Sakurai in his last fight.

Solid replacement is right. But I still think my boy Ninja will KO him!

Glad to see they found a good replacement, I'm still taking Ninja though.

Should be a pretty decent fight. I'm liking Rua in this one.

Fukuda is a very solid replacement. He's a tough fighter and has a lot of heart. Got screwed against Villasenor IMO. Close fight, but I thought he won on points. Rua definatly isn't catching a break.

That being said, i'm still taking Ninja via UD. He can be inconsistent, but when he's performing at his best, he could hang with almost any MW in the game. That, and he's handed out my favorite "bully beatdown" of all time.

Does anyone know if we get to pick this fight before the picks lock, or is the fight just too late to add to the card?
