The show features a hybrid MMA/K-1 card with some of the biggest names in combat sports.

The open-weight, eight-man "Super Hulk" commenced earlier this year with a variety of competitors, ranging from the undersized (Gegard Mousasi) to the oversized (Hong Man Choi) to the absurd (Jose Canseco). Ultimately, after Mousasi was forced out of the tournament with an injury in the second round, Sokoudjou defeated replacement Bob Sapp and Minowa subbed Choi to set up the finale.

The latest official card now includes:

Masato vs. Andy Souwer (K-1)
Ikuhisa Minowa vs. Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou (MMA/"Super Hulk" finale)
Hiroya vs. Japan Masaaki Noiri (K-1 KOSHIEN semifinal)
Katsuki Ishida vs. Shota Shimada (K-1 KOSHIEN semifinal)

Not so much set up, but yes I expect him to get subbed.

Maybe you're right, this fight is in Japan right? Maybe Thierry will be able to make it past the first round without running out of gas.
