Jason High vs. Hayato "Mach" Sakurai Set for Dynamite!! 2010

High_vs_sakurai_mediumAnother match up has been set for Dynamite!! 2010. According to MMAJunkie, long time Japanese star, Hayato Sakurai is expected to meet UFC veteran Jason High on a welterweight bout for DREAM's new year's eve show.

The pair almost faced each other a year ago, when both competitors were on opposite brackets of the semifinals of the DREAM Welterweight Grand Prix. High defeated Andre Galvao to make the finals, but Sakurai, who was thought to be the early favorite to win the tourney, lost to eventual welterweight champion, Marius Zaromskis.

High, who trains with UFC fighter Antonio Mckee at Team Bodyshop, has rattled off two straight victories following his UFC release, and now has his calendar already filled with 3 more bouts, in 3 different countries. He will be traveling back and forth from Japan, USA and Canada, as he is set to compete in Dynamite, Titan Fighting: Duffee vs. Wagner, and Maximum Fighting Championships, all in the next three months.

Sakurai on the other hand, will try to regain back his old form, as he is looking to end his three fight losing streak to Nick Diaz, Akihiro Gono, and Marius Zaromskis.

After the jump, the rumored card for Dynamite 2010 so far.
