HERO's & Pro Elite/Showtime Team Up For July Mega-PPV

The following is an excerpt from an article on Sherdog.com:

Fight Entertainment Group, the parent company of K-1 HERO'S, in conjunction with ProElite and Showtime pay-per-view officially announced “DYNAMITE!! USA” Thursday, the first MMA card on U.S. soil from the promoter of Norifumi Yamamoto and Kazushi Sakuraba.

While neither fighter was mentioned on the initial list of participants, UFC legend Royce Gracie appears slated to return to the ring for the first time since Matt Hughes pummeled him in the Octagon.

Former WWE star Brock Lesnar, who signed with K-1 last year, will make his anticipated MMA debut. Seven-foot-two South Korean Hong Man Choi fights in the U.S. for the first time, and former USC Trojan Johnnie Morton returns to his former home field for his pro MMA unveiling.
