Shooto August Ranking

Monday, 24 August 2009



Shooto have updated their rankings for August. I have not updated these for a while, so there are lots of changes. Tahara is now ranked #1 in the flyweigt division, and notice Ogikubo who have climbed into the #3 spot in the featherweight division.

Also Australian Gustavo Falciroli has come into the lightweight rankings after a strong win in Shooto Australia.

Notice Gustavo Falciroli who has come into the #7 spot after a win over "Wicky" in Shooto Australia.

6. Mizuto Hirota

Champion Nakakura suffered an eye injury in his last loss to Gomi, there was some doubt that he will make it back to the ring, but I hope we will see the champion defend his title soon. This is a very strog division now, with the additon of Gomi and Sengoku champion Hirota.
