Manhoef Faces The Machine in July
Whilst the headliner scheduled for July 1’s Cage Rage 17 "Ultimate Challenge will be the Tank Abbott-Amokrane Sabet match, British fans are already talking about the newly announced contest between Melvin Manhoef and Ian "The Machine" Freeman. The explosive Dutchman Manhoef holds the Cage Rage Light Heavyweight World Title, but in this fight his belt will not be on the line, as the match will be contested at the catch weight of 96 kg (211 lbs). Freeman had announced his retirement last year, but it seems the lure of the ring and a shot at Manhoef have brought him back into competition. Manhoef is coming off a brutal win over Shungo Oyama at K-1 Hero’s and will have youth on his side, while Freeman has the edge in experience.
