3/20 Shooto Tradition 6 - 2 Title Fights Announced

Monday 2 February 2009

Shooto is moving back to Korakuen Hall for this event that is taking place the same day as Sengoku 7. Shooto producer/sponsor Sustain recently signed a deal with Sengoku, so I am guessing that means we will see some Shooto fighters in Sengoku.

Either way, this card is looking very good! 2 world title fights have been added to this card. "BJ" will fight again, this time he will put his bantamweight title on the line against Yuki Shoujou.

The other title fight is in the featherweight division (shooto that is 60.0kg, Sengoku is 65.0kg). Undefeated champion Masakatsu Ueda will take on So Tazawa. Tazawa has been on a strong run lately, and his last loss came 2 years ago to Masakatsu Ueda.

Also on the card, look out for undefeated Mikitoshi Yamagami, who always seems to get the crowd on his side. This is his first fight in Korakuen hall, but he is always a hit in Shinjuku Face.

Bantamweight Shooto World Title Fight:
Shinichi "BJ" Kojima vs. 8-4-2 Yuki Shoujou

Featherweight Shooto World Title Fight:
Masakatsu Ueda 8-0-2 vs. 8-3-3 So Tazawa

Fly: Atsushi "ATCH Anarchy" Takeuchi 5-4-2 vs. 3-0-0 Mikitoshi Yamagami

Rookie Tournament:
Feather: Takashi Niikuni 1-0-0 vs. Kota Onojima
