2/20 DEEP 40 - Fights Added

Friday 23 January 2009

DEEP have added 4 fights to this event that is looking increasingly good.

Added today is a fight between Riki Fukuda and Ryuta Sakurai. These fighters met in the first round of last year's middleweight tournament and Fukuda got a decision win on that occation. The winner will challenge Yuichi Nakanishi, who won the tournament last year.

Also added is a last years Shooto Rookie tournament finalist Naohiro Mizuno, facing Hiroto and Kazuhisa Tazawa is taking on American veteran Tim "Big Perm" Persey.

Hidehiko Hasegawa is confirmed as a participant.

I have a feeling you will see some of these fighters on DREAM cards this year, so it will be interesting to see. This is looking like a very good card from DEEP.

Riki Fukuda 12-4-0 vs. 18-14-4 Ryuta Sakurai
Kazuhisa Tazawa 3-0-1 vs. 9-2-0 Tim "Big Perm" Persey
Hiroto 6-1-0 vs. 4-2-0 Naohiro Mizuno
Shunsuke Inoue 4-3-1 vs. 2-6-0 Minoru Kato

Previously announced:
Seichi Ikemoto vs. 15-8-3 Hidetaka Monma

Jutaro Nakao 22-13-4
Katsunori Kikuno 9-1-1
Koichiro Matsumoto 6-1-0
Hidehiko Hasegawa 15-11-5
