Due to the recent earthquake and tsunami disaster that hit Japan, MMA fighter - Satoshi Ishii - was scrapped from Strikeforce Challengers 15 roster.

Last Monday, Strikeforce officials announced that light heavyweight fighter, Lorenz Larkin, will step in to replace Satoshi Ishii to face Scott Lighty on Friday’s Strikeforce Challengers 15. Satoshi Ishii’s participation was another casualty of the recent Japan earthquake. Due to the cataclysmic event, the fighter was unable to secure a visa in time for the fight.

“This is definitely a step up for me, but I’m excited and looking forward to the challenge. Lighty’s a good fighter with a lot of experience. But I’ve trained hard, I’m in good shape and I’m confident,” Lorenz Larkin said.

Fighting Insider is hoping that Japan will recover soon, and that fans may see more Japanese MMA fighters in the next tourneys.
