The first two fights have been officially announced for the 16-man GP:
-Ryo Chonan vs Joey Villasenor
-Makoto Takimoto vs Gerard Mousasi
Both Villasenor and Mousassi make their highly anticipated PRIDE debuts. Chonan/Villasenor is going to be a great fight and I expect Mousasi to run over Takimoto.
Furthermore, 10 additional fighters have been officially announced for the WW GP:
-Yoon Dong Sik
This tournament is going to be great. I'm happy to see the Lombard signing official.
