Internet rumours have been running rampant lately on the PRIDE Bushido 7 card.
Wrestling101.com can confirm that ‘Lil Evil’ Jens Pulver is fighting Tonomi ‘Taisho’ Iwama.
Pulver told Wrestling101.com that as far as he was concerned the fight was a done deal.
Wrestling101.com was unable to reach Yves Edwards to confirm his rumoured fight with Mishima, but most MMA insiders feel that is a done deal also. Also, there rumours of number one Lightweight and Shooto world champion Kawajiri competing on the show. Either way, this show is shaping up to be the best showcase of Lightweights on the world stage so far.
