The promotion held a press conference today to announce the participation of Kazushi Sakuraba, Yoshihiro Akiyama, Rodrigo Gracie, Carlos Newton, Melvin Manhoef, Shungo Oyama, and Kestutis Smirnovas (RINGS Lithuania) in the HERO’s 2006 Middleweight & Light Heavyweight tournaments. Akira Maeda mentioned at the press conference that negotiations with BJ Penn were being finalized and that Penn vs. Sakuraba is a match that he wants to see take place. The Middleweight tournament will feature: Norifumi “Kid” Yamamoto, Kaoru Uno, Ivan Menjivar, JZ Calvancanti, Black Mamba, Rani Yahira, Alexandre Franca Nogueira, Hideo Tokoro, & Hiroyuki Takaya.

Kim Min-Soo vs. Don Frye will also apparently happen in a “super fight.”
