11/16 JEWELS - Megumi Fuji fighting

Friday 7 November 2008

Megumi Fuji has been added to the first Jewels card, she will face Tomoko Mori a pro-wrestler I believe is making her MMA debut. In another fight added, Hitomi Akano will face Hari in what will be a rematch from of a SmackGirl fight from 2005. Both Akano and Fuji had gotten to the SmackGirl finals this year, but those fights seem to be lost now...

Jewels have announced 7 fights for their first event, VALKYRIE (the GCM competitor) managed 6 fights for their first card. It will be interesting to see how these events match up against eachother. Both organizations stated that the goal was 8 fights.

Both Valkyrie and JEWELS have captured some stars, but the problem is that the female star base is limited and matching them against each other is very hard. This leads to the new talent facing experienced fighters in their debuts and I dont think it is very good for talent developement. I hope with the focus on female fighters in Japan now, there will be (and there is) a real effort in developing more talent.

I really hope we can see some top female fights on a DREAM or Sengoku card in the future.
