Well, so long as tickets don't sell out before the event (though i spoke with someone from the stadium and he said I should be ok.. would just get'em online if I could understand the damn Korean).

I'll try to report back on what I see.. particularly if I see anything very impressive. This is a smaller org. (though not in Korea), but Korea has a lot of upcomers right now, and also SpiritMC just partnered (or were purchased by?) EliteXC.

They have a promo vid. up for this event here, including vid. and details on the major fighters:

After a quick glance at the records, i predict the winner of
Joung-kyu Choi VS Kelvin Fitial to win the tourny.

Joung-kyu Choi has a better record, but is really a lhw.

Here's his record:
