    From one of the best MMA blogs on the net: http://www.fightergirls.com

    Quote:

    DEEP has announced that their card after 24th Impact on April 11th will be an event at Korakuen Hall on May 24th, which will boast eleven fights, all featuring fighters from CMA, prominently South Koreans. Of the eleven fights, nine will be under full DEEP MMA rules, while there will also be two female kickboxing contests. All eleven fights will be fought at openweight, save for the women’s MMA bout between Yoko Takahashi and Lee Yong Joo, which will likely be fought at 70 kilograms.

    Most notable of the competitors is PRIDE Bushido superstar Ikuhisa “Mr. Heaven” Minowa, who will be taking on South Korean Kim Han Wu in the main event. Minowa said that he was excited to be able to compete at Korakuen Hall once again, after a long absence. As per usual, Minowa will be the smaller man when he steps into the ring with Han Wu, a judoka and aikido practicioner, who will out weigh him by over twenty kilograms. Minowa was unfazed by the challenge, and likened himself to the small pro wrestler who must constantly conquer larger, stronger opponents. Also of considerable note is that this event takes place just under three weeks after the opening round of PRIDE’s Openweight Grand Prix in Osaka, where it is said Minowa will take on Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic.

    Christ. Can you imagine Yabushita kickboxing? I know a couple of you have fought or seen her, so you know what I’m talking about. She once ate a jab from Modafferi and responded with scramble punching and clinching immediately. She doesn’t even like getting hit in the face. To be generous, I imagine she’s working her kickboxing cause she’s tired of looking hapless in front of people who know how to punch.

    ….
    I feel bad for Yabushita. She’s been losing a lot lately…

    ..but I don’t think it was such a good idea to do the kickboxing match unless she’s really been training kickboxing. It makes all women fighters look inexperienced. I haven’t seen her fight, so I’m reluctant to say anything bad that could come back and bite me…
