Andreas Kraniotakes (12-4) will fight in next month's ProElite 2 headliner against Tim Sylvia (29-7), after all.

Hours after MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) passed along news that the Illinois State Professional Athletic Commission denied the heavyweight's participation because of a lack of sanctioned fights, the decision has been reversed.

HDNet Fights CEO Andrew Simon first tweeted the news, though MMAjunkie.com currently awaits confirmation from commission officials.

ProElite 2 takes place Nov. 5 at iWireless Center in Moline, Ill. The main card airs on HDNet.

Hopefully he comes in under 300 pounds at least.. Either way I wouldn't be surprised to see him get ktfo.
