Miki (19-12-4) is a former flyweight King of Pancrase. He captured that crown in 2016 but was unable to defend it and has lost his last three bouts, with the two most recent defeats both coming by way of split decision.
Inoue (19-9-4) made his Pancrase debut in 2004. The 40 year old is in fine form and has won his last five fights with all of those bouts going the distance. He hasn’t registered a defeat since 2013.
Meanwhile two lightweight journeymen will collide when Ukyo Abe (8-6-1) takes on Genpei Hayashi (8-8-1). The former will be looking to get his career back on track after losing his last four Pancrase fights.
