1/26 Shooto - Fight added

Saturday 12 January 2008

Shooto has put a really exciting fight on their January 26 card. The card had a few top fighters on it, but this will be a very good fight. Krazy Bee`s Yamamoto will take on the undefeated Ueda. This will be a very competative fight and one worth keeping an eye on.

Atsushi Yamamoto 11-4-1 vs. 6-0-1 Masakatsu Ueda

Also on the card:
Katsuya Toida 10-7-3 vs. 13-3-1 Hatsu Hioki
Shinichi “BJ” Kojima 8-2-4 vs. 6-3-2 So Tazawa
Junji Ikoma 10-9-1 vs. 10-11-2 Jin Akimoto
Hayate Usui 7-6-1 vs. 3-3-0 Daisuke Ishizawa
Takuya Mori 4-2-0 vs. 3-4-0 Ayumu “Gozo” Shioda
Junji Ito 1-1-0 vs. Kazuyuki Tori
Kota Funemoto vs. Tobizaru

For this card, I think BJ fights in the wrong weight class. I would have liked to see him back in bantamweight. Hioki did not have the best of years last year, he needs to improve on that here. Akimoto is on a 6 fight losing streak, streaching 4 years. Now he gets another chance to break that streak.

I am looking forward to seeing Usui, his fight in Back to Our Roots 6 was very good, despite the loss.
