6/19 Valkyrie 06 - Fight Order

Thursday 17 June 2010

GCM have announced the fight order for their 6th Valkyrie event. Unfortunately there are only 5 (!) fights on the card...

Considering that the men's card has 6 fights later, I dont know why they havent made this into one ticket event.

The Vakyrie card does have some good fights though, and I am really looking forward to seeing if Rin Nakai can extend her winning streak.

Main-Event - Flyweight (-45.4kg) Tournament Final:
5. Naoko Omuro 11-7-3 vs. 11-4-3 Yasuko Tamada

4. -61.2kg: Megumi Yabushita 19-16-0 vs. 6-0-0 Rin Nakai
3. -56.7kg: Mutsumi Kasai 4-1-0 vs. 1-0-0 Ayame Miura
2. -48.5kg: Naho "Sugi Rock" Sugiyama vs. 1-0-0 Megumi Morioka
1. -52.2kg Novice-Rule: Kimie "Sakura" Okada vs. "Butterfly knife" Yuka
