12/13 Shooto Rookie Tournament Finals

Tuesday 24 November 2009

The traditional Rookie tournament finals take place in Shinjuku Face on December 13.

As usual there are some talented fighters. The welterweight final should be very interesting, Matsumoto has won all his fights within the distance and is coming in with a lot of comfidence. As usual the best fights should be in the featherweight and lightweight divisions, it looks that way this year as well.

This year they have added a heavyweight tournament as well.

In non-tournament fights, Yuta Nezu will be looking to build on his impressive Shooto record, but he is facing a very tough opponent in Naohiro Mizuno, the loser in last years rookie tournament final.

Welter: Guy Delameau 11-5-1 vs. 5-3-0 Mateus Irie Nechio
