Fight Night 52 from Japan Card Revealed.

There hasn't been much talk about UFC Fight Night 52 from Japan. The lack of discussion probably has something to do with the many cards between July and September. Oversaturation.

In addition to the fights listed below, Norifumi "Kid" Yamamoto is schedule to take on Urijah "the California Kid" Faber. This is a fight mma fans were salivating over 5-6 years ago when both fighters were dominating the nascent featherweight division. Also, a UFC released video, posted to mmamania.com, seems to indicate that Gomi might be fighting Crusher Kawajiri rather than Miles Jury. The Crusher Kawajiri fight would be more appropriate in terms of marketing and rankings. The video also promotes undefeated Queen of Pancrase, Rin Nakai, as a possible contender to Rousey if she gets past Miesha Tate.

I have a feeling this is going to shape up to be a fun event. As usual, I'll include a poll to get an idea of how much fans are getting excited for this event. Too bad it's on Fight Pass.
