Report: Kharitonov vs. Mizuno, Ishii vs Le Banner at Dynamite!! 2010

I wonder if Satoshi Ishii regrets not signing with the UFC?

The blanks are being filled in for FEG's -- the parent company of K-1 and Dream -- annual New Year's Eve extravaganza Dynamite 2010!!

MMA Fighting's Daniel Herbertson reported earlier today that former Pride heavyweight contender Sergei Kharitonov would be facing light heavyweight Tatsuya MizunoMore from Herbertson:

The Dec. 31 bout will be the first MMA fight of the year for Kharitonov. The Russian was once considered one of the top heavyweights in the world but his last mixed martial arts appearance was an unimpressive submission loss to Jeff Monson in April 2009. Kharitonov looked as though he had found some form in K-1, with an impressive win over Takumi Sato in Seoul and a good start against Singh "Heart" Jaideep, but that was put to an end as the Indian found a home for his hands.

Jerome Le Banner was initially slated to face Mizuno but the Frenchman was later offered Beijing judo gold medalist Satoshi Ishii. With sources indicating that the Mizuno-Kharitonov bout has been made, it seems as though Le Banner has opted to take the match with Ishii, although MMA Fighting has been unable to confirm that. has since confirmed the Ishii match with JLB's camp.
