Yves Edwards will be a part of the upcoming Pride 10 Bushido Card coming up this weekend from Japan. In another MMAWeekly exclusive, Edwards told MMAWeekly on Sunday that he has agreed to fight Seichi Ikemoto, a very experienced fighter, who has mainly fought in Shooto and DEEP.
Edwards will catch a flight tomorrow to Japan to take the fight. Edwards is looking forward to some redemption. “I just want to get back in there and fight”, Edwards told MMAWeekly’s Ryan Bennett. “I want to prove I’m back.”
Edwards found out about the fight last week and will have to weigh-in at 160 pounds for the fight. Yves said he has been training and will be ready to go. Edwards was upset last month in Las Vegas to Mark Hominick at UFC 58 and looks forward to bouncing back.
