Ryoji Kudo faces Shohei Nose at Shooto 0919
Four more fights were added to the Shooto 0919 card this week. The event is set for Shibuya O-East on September 19th.
In the featherweight division Ryoji Kudo (8-1-1) faces Shohei Nose (3-0-2). The former is coming off a stoppage win at Road to ONE 2 while the latter is riding a three fight winning streak and has yet to taste defeat in his MMA career.
In the lightweight division Nobumitsu Osawa (12-5) faces Max (8-5). The former was stopped by Tofiq Musaev at Rizin 14 and has not fought since while the Cameroonian’s identity remains a mystery even after 13 fights in Japan.
Also in the lightweight division Yamato Nishikawa (9-3-5) has been matched with Asuka Tsubaki (2-2). Meanwhile teenager Otoha Nagao (3-2) faces Mirai Nakamura (2-2) in an atomweight clash.
As previously announced Takashi Nakayama will defend his Pacific Rim 145lbs title against Kosuke Suzuki at Shooto 0919. Also in the featherweight division Nobuki Fujii has been matched with Jojo Goto.
This represents a slight change to the Shooto schedule. The event that was originally expected to take place at the Korakuen Hall on September 21st will no longer be happening and has been replaced by this card.
