It has been confirmed that Pride superstars Mauricio “Shogun” Rua and Takanori Gomi have been added to the Pride Shockwave 2006 card.
Mauricio “Shogun” Rua is scheduled to face Kazuhiro Nakamura. Both fighters recently appeared on the Pride USA card entitled “The Real Deal” where fans saw both fighters pick up victories. “Shogun” defeated the very tough Hammer House product Kevin Randleman by submission and Nakamura stopped his opponent Travis Galbraith via strikes.
Pride Lightweight Champion Takanori Gomi will battle Shooto Pacific Rim Welterweight Champion Mitsuhiro Ishida in a non-title bout.
