Juntaro Ushiku faces Daisuke Nakamura at Deep 100
Featherweight champion Juntaro Ushiku will be back in action at Deep 100. He faces Daisuke Nakamura in a non title fight.
Ushiku (18-7-1) is riding a six fight winning streak that culminated in a decision win over Satoshi Yamasu at Deep 97. That victory earned him the promotion’s featherweight title but it won’t be on the line next month.
Nakamura (29-19-1) is a former Deep lightweight champion. The 40 year old has spent more time competing in submission grappling than MMA in recent years but, like his opponent, is coming off a win at Deep 97.
Also in the featherweight division Daiki Hata (20-13-6) has been matched with Kouya Kanda (6-3). The event is set for the TDC Hall in Tokyo on February 21st
Headlining this historic card is a lightweight bout between Satoka Kitaoka and Juri Ohara. The event is set for TDC Hall on February 21st and will serve as a celebration of the promotion’s 20th anniversary.
The event will take place in front of a limited live audience although restrictions could get tighter if the Covid-19 situation in Japan continues to deteriorate.
