10/26 Shooto - Gig Central Vol. 16

Saturday 23 August 2008

Shooto have announced the main event for their October 26 event in Nagoya already. So far there is no Hatsu Hioki on the card (I am a bit surprised, he normally turns up on these cards), but the main event should be a good one. It is the Pacific Rim Title Fight between #1 ranked Yoshitaro Niimi and #3 ranked Xavier Lucas. The Pacific Middleweight title is currently available.

Also returning in Mutsumi Kasai, from Sherdog it looks like her last MMA fight was in 2003... I am not sure if it is the same girl, but it looks like it (a bit unusual name).

Main-Event - Pacific Rim Middleweight Title Fight:
Yoshitaro Niimi 6-2-2 vs. 4-1-1 Xavier Lucas

Welterweight: Masato Fujiwara 5-10-5 vs. 5-3-3 Kenichi Hattori

Thanks, I go by Sherdog's records just for consistency. It has him listed as 4-1-1. I have no doubt that he has had more fights, but its hard for me to confirm.

I've seen other sites have two extra match ups. Are these two fights on the card aswell?

Kenichi Sawada vs. Teppei Masuda
Naohiro Mizuno vs. Mitsuru Kobayashi

You are right, this card has 2 fights that I have missed...

I will update the post, thanks for letting me know.
