Welcome to Frank Pozen's Big Bad Blog. A lot of folks have been asking me to update them about my recovery. So I thought I would start a blog primarily to do that but also to talk about other topics of interest including the wrestling business and whatever else I can think of. I plan to update this on a regular basis so check back and leave a comment if you wish.

Nicdali Calanic to Japan to face MIKU
DEEP announced today that US fighter Nicdali Calanic (pictured) will face DEEP Women's Lightweight Champ MIKU on their Apr. 16 Korakuen Hall show. It will be a non-title fight. The fight is contracted for 52kg. MIKU normally fights at 48kg and Nicdali normally fights at 56kg so they've decided to split the difference. MIKU said she doesn't care about the weight difference. MIKU's record is 19-4 and her most recent win was over Hikaru Shinohara at the Dec. 22 DEEP show. She is on a nine fight winning streak. Her recent participation in Shoot Boxing has led to rumours that she plans to leave MMA. This will be Nicdali's first trip to Japan. She was recommended by Lethal Lana Stefanac. The 23 year old's record is 5-2. Her most recent win was over Shawn Tamarabuchi at the Aug. 23 FCF show in Shawnee, OK. A lot of fans may recall seeing her beat Jen Babcock in 30 seconds on Bodog a couple of years ago. It should be interesting to see if the weight difference matters but MIKU has proven to be very tough. I don't think she plans on losing.
