1/18 Shooto Tradition 5 - Fight Order

Friday 16 January 2009

This is going to be a very busy couple of weeks in the world of MMA. This weekend in Japan, Shooto has the biggest event.

They have announced the fight order for Sunday, and I will be giving you these results live!

The main event is between the currrent Pacific Champion, Yusuke Endo and a former champion in Kotetsu Boku. Boku is coming off 2 straight losses and will be looking to redeem himself against a very tough opponent. This is not a title fight, but I dont think any of these fighters will care once the fight is on!

The card suffered a setback when the fight between So Tazawa and Katsuya Toida was cancelled and there are "only" 8 fights on the card. However, the card is still a strong one.

Fight Order:
8. Main Event - Welter: Yusuke Endo 12-2-1 vs. 13-5-1 Kotetsu Boku
7. Bantam: Shinichi "BJ" Kojima 9-3-4 vs. 4-1-0 Jesse Taitano
6. Light: Hiroshi "Iron" Nakamura 5-3-4 vs. 10-6-1 Hayate Usui
5. Light: Shintaro Ishiwatari 6-1-2 vs. 4-7-0 Michihiro Omigawa
4. Bantam: Jin Akimoto 10-12-4 vs. 4-6-0 Ayumu "Gozo" Shioda
3. Feather: Junya Kudo "KODO" 6-2-2 vs. 5-4-1 Takahiro Hosoi
2. Middle: Akihiro Yamazaki 10-2-1 vs. 全 龍左 Zon Yon Ze(?)
1. Fly: Sakae Kasuya 4-3-3 vs. 3-5-2 Tomonori Taniguchi
