Earlier today DEEP held their 5th DEEP X, or grappling event. It was a very good card.

The highlight was a Japan vs. USA 3 fight competition. DEEP flew in some of the best grapplers from the US, to take on some of the best Japan had to offer. From the fighters, I thought the US would be the favorites, but Japan had the homefield, and of course some very good grapplers of their own. In the end Japan took it home 2-1.

81.5kg: Keita "K-Taro" Nakamura Def. Paul Schreiner by Kimura Round 2 1:44
