11/8 Shooto - Back to Our Roots 6

Saturday 13 October 2007

Finally Shoot have confirmed some of the match-ups for their 11. November event in Yoyogi Gymnasium. I expect this to be the best shooto card this year, and so far it looks very good.

Already the card has 4-5 very good fights, the hightlights for me:
-Welterweight title fight between Nakamura and Endo.
-Most likely a chance for Toida or Lion Takeshi to get a chance at Tamura`s Light weight title (I hope they add Antonio Carvalho to this card, an amazing fighter and always fun to watch! Currently Carvalho is ranked #2 in this weight class.
-"BJ" Kojima will have a non-title fight against Dantas. Dantas is an 18 year old Brazilian with an impressive record (his only loss is by DQ). This is his chance to climb up the rankings.
-Yozen vs. Silva is also an interesting match-up. Silva is unknown to me, but fighting out of Nova Uniao I am sure he is a very skillful fighter.
-I like it when there are good female fights on the card, and this time "Mega Megu" will fight. For me, this might be the main event. Female fighters are not getting the credit they deserve, and "Mega Megu" is the best there is! It is a relief that they have put her up agianst the exerienced Takabayashi. This is a fight I am really looking forward to.

The confirmed fights:
Takashi Nakakura 8-2-1 VS 10-1-1 Yusuke Endo
Katsuya Toida 10-6-3 VS 13-2-0 “Lion” Takeshi Inoue
Shinichi Kojima “BJ” 8-1-4 VS 2-1-0 Eduardo Dantas
Masaaki Sugawara 6-1-0 VS 3-2-0 Rambaa Somdet “M16”
Masashi Yozen 5-1-1 VS Leandro Batata Silva
Megumi Fujii “Mega Megu” 11-0-0 VS 8-1-0 Kyoko Takabayashi
Hayate Usui 7-5-1 VS 3-1-2 Shintaro Ishiwatari
