4/12 Shooto GIG Central Vol. 17

Saturday 4 April 2009

Its going to be a great week for MMA in Nagoya. First tomorrow DREAM is holding their first event in Nagoya, then next week Shooto will have their event there. The only negative for the hard core fans in Nagoya is the absence of their local star Hatsu Hioki.

The GIG Central cards dont really feel the same without Hioki fighting, but it should still be an entertaining event.

The main-event will feature a regular at the Shooto Nagoya events, Kenichi Hattori has fought in 9 of the 16 GIG Central events to date. Outside of that, he has 3 fights. Hattori is now on a 3 fight winning streak, and he is awarded with the main-event here. He is taking on Purebred Kyoto's Hiroshi Shiba.

Also on the card is Paolo Milano, who has gone winless for 3 fights and will be looking to get back on the winning track, and Nagoya local Takesuke Kume, who is undefeated home in Nagoya.

Welter: Kenichi Hattori 6-3-3 vs. 5-5-0 Hiroshi Shiba

Welter: Takahiro Kajita 9-8-3 vs. 6-4-1 Paolo Milano
Middle: Hirosumi Sugiura 3-4-2 vs. 3-1-2 Takesuke Kume
Bantam: Hiroshi Sakamoto 3-4-0 vs. 1-4-0 Joji Shimada
