7/19 Shooto - Fights Announced

Saturday 16 May 2009

Shooto have announced fights for their next big event. It probably wont be as big as the final tradition card, but it is looking interesting after 5 fights have been announced.

The main event should be the featherweight title fight between the undefeated champion Masakatsu Ueda. The challenger is the very talented Brazilian Eduardo Dantas. Dantas has picked off his competition in Shooto Brazil, then he came to Japan to introduce "BJ" to the featherweight division. His only loss is a disqualification and this fight should be very interesting.

Also returning to Shooto after 2 years away is Alive's Yasuhiro Akagi, who will be taking on Masaaki Sugawara.

Featherweight Title Fight:
Masakatsu Ueda 9-0-2 vs. 7-1-0 Eduardo Dantas

Bantam: Yasuhiro Akagi 6-4-0 vs. 7-3-1 Masaaki Sugawara
Fly: "Heat" Takeshi Sato 8-6-1 vs. 6-4-2 Atsushi Takeuchi

Neo-Blood Tournament 2nd Round:
Welter: Hiroki "KG Shinto" Kuga 2-1-0 vs. 1-1-0 Munehiro "Mike" Kin
Feather: Kota Onojima 1-0-0 vs. Inagaki
Welter: Koji Nishioka 0-0-1 vs. Harada

Shinichi "BJ" Kojima
