Shigeru Saeki announced DEEP Cage Impact 2013 in TDC Hall will take place on November 24, 2013. The event will be their first cage tournament, and Hiroshi Nakamura will take his first fight back in Japan in 2 years.
Yoshiyuki Yoshida will also be making his first fight return to Japan since leaving for the UFC to face War Machine back in 2008. DEEP Featherweight Champion Kazunori Yokota will also be on the card, but what his title defense status is remains to be seen. Akihiro Gono has apparently decided to stay un-retired since the DEEP boss chalked his name up on the list.
