3/22 Shooto "The way of Shooto 2"- Toida Added - BJ Returns His Title

Monday 1 March 2010

"BJ" Kojima has returned his shooto title today. This is due to a knee injury and he will get a title shot once he returns. Meanwhile that opens the door for some of the bantamweight contenders. I have a feeling Mamoru will get this shot, but could also be Urushitani vs. Miki since they are the highest ranked right now.

There is a bantamweight fight on the card this time too, maybe it would serve as a qualifier? Either way, Yuki Shojo taking on Jesse Taitano should be a great fight. Anything else would be a bonus for these guys, but doors might open now that Shooto needs a new champion.

Added to the card is a fight between Katsuya Toida and Yusuke Yachi. Yachi was the Rookie tournament champion and MVP last year. Will be interesting to see if he can handle Toida, who can be a bit inconsistent and hasnt fought in a while.

Light: Katsuya Toida 11-9-3 vs. 3-0-0 Yusuke Yachi
