The women's MMA event “Deep Jewels 34” was held on Saturday (September 04, 2021) at Shinjuku FACE in Tokyo, Japan. Shigeru Saeki's promotion has developed many female fighters recently and this was on display in the latter event in which most athletes had had fewer than three fights in their careers. But despite this, these competitors are creating 'fanbases', getting sponsorships and are getting better.
The schedule also featured athletes experienced in the sport.
In the 'main event' (and therefore the 'main event') of the card we saw a fight in the atom weight category between Mizuki Oshiro and Mizuki Furuse. And although the two have the same name, they experience different moments in their careers.
Oshiro came to this competition after losing three times last year while Furuse, in turn, had won a contract with Rizin FF, also last year, after four consecutive victories.
But it was Oshiro, the oldest fighter (25 years old), who prevailed over Furuse (20 years old). The latter seemed eager to end the fight from the start, but Oshiro seemed to be in his comfort zone. She came close to winning with two armbar attempts after being thrown to the ground and worked on the ground and pound in the first round.
The Okinawan fighter's victory would come in the second round, after conquering the mount and punishing her opponent with punches from the superior position, which forced Furuse's corner to throw in the towel. Oshiro won by “TKO” at 4 minutes and 13 seconds into the second period and improved to 3-4, while his opponent dropped to 7-8.
The 'co-main event' (or “co-main event”) marked the recovery of Mikiko Shimizu (3-1) after the first loss suffered in her career. This time, she beat Kate Oyama (1-2), by unanimous decision, after two rounds of the fight in the flyweight division.
In another highlight of the program we saw Aya Murakami (2-0) submit Kyoka Chibisai (0-2) with an armbar at 4 minutes and 16 seconds of the first round.

On the afternoon of Sunday, June 20, 2021, Deep Jewels 33 took place at the New Pier Hall in Minato, Tokyo, the capital of Japan. , via “Pay-Per-View”. Nobuyuki Sakakibara, the CEO of Rizin FF, was present, attending the fights.
Deep Jewels is currently the biggest female MMA show in the Asian continent and its 33rd event was marked by the dispute of the Grand Prix of the atom weight category, brilliantly won by Saori Oshima - a 26 year old young athlete - who passed through the south- Korean Si Woo Park and Japanese Hikaru Aono on the same card, thus becoming the new champion up to 47,6 kg of the promotion, in addition to winning the prize of 1 million yen.
In the opening round of the last fight on the card, Oshima hit left and right, and tried to take down Hikaru Aono, who also continually tried to take the fight to the ground. But it was forced to defend itself from several submission attempts during the process. Oshima still managed to “shave” and tried to use the guillotine to strangle his opponent.
At the beginning of the second period of the two-round fight, Aono managed to consolidate a takedown, but Oshima looked more 'slippery' on the ground, being able to “scrape” and try to use a Kimura to finish. She held first position until the bell signaled the end of this second round, leaving an easy decision for the judges.
The decision was 5-0 (20-17 × 2, 20-18 × 3 ), and Oshima - who won his second Deep Jewels title - improved to 6-2 while Aono dropped to 8-5.
At the press conference after the fight, the new champion promised to return to the cage and do her best to keep her titles. She also said that she would accept an invitation from Rizin FF to fight.
At the beginning of the Deep Jewels 33 lineup, we saw the semi-finalists who were defeated in this Grand Prix. Park (5-3) was submitted by Oshima, while Mizuki Oshiro (2-4) was submitted by Aono.
Seika Izawa (3-0) submitted Miki Motono (5-3) in the first round to become Deep Jewels' new strawweight champion.
