It appears more Japanese fighters will be appearing on the upcoming Strikeforce show on April 9 currently rumored to take place in San Diego, Calif.

Late Tuesday night, MMAWeekly.com confirmed the addition of both Shinya Aoki and Hiroyuki Takaya to the April card in Strikeforce.

While no bout agreements or even opponents have been named for them, both Aoki and Takaya have been told they will be appearing on the show.

Im surprised they havent targeted that division already. Despite popular belief, theres a world of talent at that weight imo.
