Strange things happen before some of Keijiro Maeda’s fights. Before this Mighty Mo was in a traffic accident and Musashi got injured before their fight with him. Now Chalid "Die Faust" is out just three days before the event and Maeda will go up against Melvin Manhoef.
When asked what his impressions of Manhoef are Maeda answered that he (Maeda) is in big trouble. Manhoef is the fighter that he wanted to fight the least out of anyone.
