A heavyweight bout that probably shouldn’t even be allowed to take place between Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Gegard Mousasi and Gary Goodridge has been booked for the DREAM and Sengoku promoted New Years Eve event, “Dynamite!! 2009“.
Mousasi has won his last fourteen straight while Goodridge has not seen a single victory in his previous ten bouts, and furthermore has gone 2-12-1 in his last fifteen.
Also on the card will be a bout first reported by FiveOuncesofPain.com between Dutch knockout sensation Melvin Manhoef and top rated middleweight Kazuo Misaki.
Featuring a main event that only the locals and a few people that train in Judo can get excited for, fellow Olympic Judokas Satoshi Ishii and Hidehiko Yoshida will throw down, quite literally.
