11/8 Shooto "Back the Our Roots 6" - Pre-view

Wednesday 7 November 2007

Tomorrow is the main event for MMA fans in Japan. Shooto has not disapppinted with their "Super-card".

There are so many good fights on this card that I dont know where to begin. I have tried to find videos of the fighters. Anyway, things to look forward to:
-One of my favorite fighters, Joachim Hansen returns to the ring.
-Antonio Carvalho fights in what I see as the best match-up of the event, against HEROs veteran Hiroyuki Takaya.
-"Mega" Megu, Megumi Fujii faces Kyoko Takabayashi. I have not seen Mega Megu fight live yet, and this is a fight I am really looking forward to.
-Of course 2 Pacific rim title fights.
-18 year old Brazilian sensation, Eduardo Dantas in the biggest fight of his life.

Fight order is set as the Shooto web-site, not sure if this is actual order.
