Despite the extension of the state of emergency in Japan's capital, Shooto produced an audience-attended show that could attend the 'live' event in the gym that Sunday (May 16, 2021). The edition that took place at Korakuen Hall, in Tokyo, brought together the old and the new generation of MMA that converged on the 'card' of this Shooto 2021 Volume 3.
The 'main event' on the lineup was a fight between 18-year-old Yamato Nishikawa, who submitted Nobumitsu Osawa, former Shooto welterweight champion, in a breathtaking match.
The fight started with Osawa landing some kicks on Nishikawa. The teenager pressed forward trying to calm the fight until he decided to pull guard. It was then that Osawa - also a Rizin FF veteran - made use of the 'ground and pound' while his opponent tried to finish with a triangle.
The submission with the infamous blow would come, however, in the second round, when Nishikawa - after attacking with his elbows - "fitted" the triangle and causing his opponent to hit, with seven seconds to the end of the round.
The victory was Nishikawa's ninth consecutive victory, which extended his 'record' to 14-3-5. Osawa, in turn, drops to 13-6.
In the 'co-main event' (or “co-main event”) we saw Japanese MMA pioneer Caol Uno (34-21-5) - who was celebrating 25 years as a fighter - in a "clash of generations" with Taison Naito (11-8), student of his former opponent (and also former teacher) Rumina Sato. 
The 46-year-old veteran ended up being defeated by knockout with a right “hook” at 4min and 59sec of the second round.
In another “clash of generations” on this card, the undefeated Yuto Uda (5-0) defeated former Pancrase king (flyweight) Kiyotaka Shimizu (24-15), by unanimous decision of the judges after three rounds.
Highlight for the duel between Yamato Hiranuma and Daisuke Murayama, which had a historical significance, at least for the Japanese. The first is a disciple of Satoru Sayama (founder of the Shooto event in 1985) and the fight marked the return of a representative of Sayama Dojo to Korakuen Hall, sacred place where Shooto's first professional competition was held, on May 18, 1989 . 
The event is currently owned by Noboru Uruta.
Hiranuma, who in his illustrious Judo career accumulates a historic draw with Hifumi Abe - Japanese representative of the Tokyo Olympics - ended up beating Daisuke Murayama (Master Japan Tokyo) by unanimous decision of the judges after two rounds of fight.
Among the women, the highlight was for Megumi Sugimoto (6-3) who won again, after losing to Seika Izawa, at DEEP Jewels, (in March of this year), and also to Satomi Takano, at Shooto, in November 2020. His “resurrection” took place in front of Mikiko Hiyama.
At the start of the first round, Sugimoto hit her opponent repeatedly after a takedown. The victory came with a rear naked choke after 1min and 31sec of the initial period. Hiyama still hasn't known the victory in MMA. This was the eighth defeat of his career.
The Shooto 2021 Volume 3 card had four female matches and seven male challenges.
