1/25 ZST - SWAT! in FACE Vol.2 - Fight Order

Wednesday 21 January 2009

ZST is putting on a double header this Sunday in Shinjuku Face. Shinjuku Face is an awesome place to watch fights, as it is very small and intimate it is impossible to get a bad seat.

There are 2 cards, hence you do need 2 tickets if you want to go to both of these.

The SWAT event starts at 12.30, and it should be well worth the ticket price. 11 fights are on the card, and for a SWAT card this is very good.

Worth noting on the SWAT card, there are 2 tournaments. The welterweight tournament will only have the final in this event. Due to injury on Masayuki Hamagishi, Hiroyuki Ito will take the place in the final.

There is also a flyweight genesis tournament, which we will have 2 semi-finals and a final on the night.

The main event is the welterweight fight between ZST talent Tomohiko Yoshida and AACC's "Toraji".

I am really excited about this event, reason is that my BJJ instructor is fighting and it will be the first time I get a chance to watch him live. Hiroshi Tsuruya is an experienced grappler, and here are just some of his titles:

2005 Japan Shooto Grappling Championships Middleweight Winner
2005 LUTADOR NO-GI JIU-JITSU Open weight Winner
2007 Bogona Grappling Absolute weight winner

It should be a good grapping match, and a very good evening of fights.
