As previously announced the card will be headlined by a featherweight title fight with Isao Kobayashi putting his belt on the line against Taichi Nakajima. The champion is riding a five fight winning streak while the challenger is coming off a win over UFC veteran Yoshinori Horie.
Meanwhile one of the most experienced fighters in the sport will be in welterweight action. UFC and ONE Championship veteran Yuki Kondo has been matched with Yoshinori Suzuki.
Two of the promotion’s top strawweights will go head to head when Ryo Hatta faces Yuta Miyazawa. In the flyweight division multiple time boxing world challenger Raika Emiko meets Nori Date.
