HERO's announces fighters for 154 tournament

Sherdog reports that FEG released the first names for their upcoming 154 lbs tournament on the July 16th card at Yokohama Arena.

  • Gesias "JZ" Calvancanti
  • Caol Uno
  • Vitor "Shaolin" Ribeiro
  • Hideo Tokoro
  • Katsuhiko Nagata
  • Kazuyuki Miyata
  • Kultar "Black Mamba" Gill
  • Shuichiro Katsumura
  • Alexandre Franca "Pequeno" Nogueira
I also hope we'll see Ivan Menjivar back in the tournament this year following his great fights against Uno and Tokoro in the HERO's 154 GP last year.

It's interesting to see that none of the PRIDE lightweights have jumped ship to HERO's so far, at least none that we are aware of yet. On the same note Shinya Aoki wrote on his blog today that PRIDE was fine and he was still training for the PRIDE lightweight GP, let's hope he's right.
