PRIDE Lightweight Tournament Details Emerge

UFC Pride Lightweight Tournament

According to the above poster the PRIDE Lightweight GP is set for May 20th. Here are the rumored fighters for the tournament based on the pictures on the top of the poster:

  • Matt Hughes
  • Diego Sanchez
  • Takanori Gomi
  • Marcus Aurelio
  • Gilbert Melendez
  • Joachim Hansen
  • Tatsuya Kawajiri
  • Mitsuhiro Ishida
  • Luiz Buscape
  • Shinya Aoki
  • Hayato Sakurai
  • Luiz Azevedo

If this event is truly just over a month away I would not be surprised if we hear some more details come out in the coming weeks regarding the format of the tournament as well as what fighters will in fact be involved. The obvious person many had hoped to see in the tournament was Nick Diaz but he will be unable to participate after being suspended until late August.
