Higashi (4-2) started MMA relatively late in life. But she is already a veteran of six bouts for the venerable Japanese promotion and is coming off a split decision defeat at Pancrase 309.
That loss snapped Higashi’s four fight winning streak and she has been matched with a Brazilian next month. Lamounier (3-1) is a Jungle Fight veteran who will be fighting on foreign soil for the first time in her career.
As previously announced Daichi Kitakata will make the first defence of his strawweight title at Pancrase 313. The 28 year old is scheduled to face Adam Antolin.
Meanwhile two top bantamweights will face off as Wataru Mimura faces Sho Sekihara. Also on the card is a flyweight fight pitting Hawaii’s Rilley Dutro against Taiki Akiba.
Pancrase 313 will also feature a featherweight fight between veterans Issei Tamura and Suguru Nii.
