Kang & Akiyama Among Those On Next HERO's MMA Card

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

Although Akiyama did not compete at the event, upon announcement of a second HERO'S card in Seoul it appeared the return of the former HERO'S 187-pound tournament winner, an ethnic Korean, was imminent.

In November 2005 Akiyama anchored the first HERO'S card in Seoul. In the main event, the former judoka crushed Masakatsu Okuda in the first round.

No opponent has yet been named for Akiyama, and no match-ups have been made official.

Also on the card, ranked middleweight Denis Kang (Pictures) makes his HERO'S debut versus a yet-to-be determined opponent. Former South Korean judo star Dong sik Yoon, and former K-1 standout-turned-MMA fighter Taiei Kin (Pictures), who is also an ethnic Korean, will appear on the card.
