Zombie-PRIDE is up to it’s old tricks by announcing fighters who aren’t fighting on their card. A few of the names in their list seemed kinda fishy from the get go, but I don’t hold sketchy Japanese promotions up to the same level of professionalism as I do with American companies.
Anyways, the first fighters to come out and say “I’m doing what when? Huh?” is Ricardo Arona, who cited ‘personal problems’ as the reason he’s not fighting and stated he wouldn’t be fighting until next year. Who will be next on the “I’m not fighting at this” train? My bet is Gilbert Melendez or Hellboy Hansen.
