MMAWeekly’s Scott Petersen reports from Japan that Masakazu Imanari is off the Bushido 10 card. Imanari was supposed to fight Jens Pulver this weekend.
It appears that Imanari was hospitalised this week due to an asthma attack. It looks as though Pride/DSE will replace Imanari with Pancrase fighter Kenji Arai who is a solid stand up fighter. Arai is 11-7 and has won four of his last five fights.
Pulver was won 5 of his last 7 and is 19-6 overall, but has gone two and two in his last four losing to Hayato Sakurai and Takanori Gomi and defeating Tonmoi Iwamni and Stephan Palling.
