7/19 Shooto - BJs Opponent Announced

Tuesday 16 June 2009

Today Shooto announced the opponent for their world champion, Shinichi "BJ" Kojima. It will be the Shooto south American champion, Jucie Formiga. Formiga is also #6 on the world ranking, and it adds another solid fight to this card. "BJ" has proven to be very hard to beat at bantam weight, and has only lost once in his career at 56kg. That loss came at the hands of Junichi Sase almost 6 years ago.

This is the first major Shooto card since the final Tradition card, and it has some very larges shoes to fill.

Masakatsu Ueda 9-0-2 vs. 7-1-0 Eduardo Dantas
