Thats great news! I love Imanari's style but always thought he would be better at a lighter weight class (vs. Aurelio at 155 comes to mind). War Ashikan Judan!

Yeah, this fight is at 62kg. Should suit him better. It is interesting that DEEP is adding the Bantamweight belt as well.

This should be a very good event!
