Tatsumitsu Wada gets bonus on “Road to ONE 5th: Sexyama Edition” held in Japan; Check the results

 “Road to ONE 5th: Sexyama Edition” was held at Tsutaya O-East in Shibuya, Tokyo, Japan, on October 5, 2021 (Tuesday). The event was a tribute to UFC veteran Yoshihiro Akiyama, who chaired the comment booth. There was also a 300.000 yen ($2.700 USD) 'Sexyama Bonus' on offer for anyone who would fight the funniest fight on the card.

In the 'main event' (and therefore the 'main event') of the 'schedule' we saw an MMA fight between Tatsumitsu Wada, (a former 'DEEP Impact' champion) and Daichi Takenaka, (former 'Shooto' bantamweight champion ” ).

The fight started in the “swapping” area, with Wada hitting a kick in the leg of Takenaka, who retaliated with a nice left “cross” followed by a kick that hit the inside of his opponent's leg. The athletes who are currently part of the 'Squad' of the 'ONE Championship' continued to invest in the 'swapping', with Takenaka delivering a kick to Wada's body in response to the 'strike' (a left 'hook' and an 'uppercut' ) that had been “connected” from the “clinch”. This first round also featured some moments of “hand to hand” fights.

The fighters continued to invest in punches and kicks at the start of the second round, but they also developed the ground game, with Wada taking his opponent's back. He ended up on the bottom and even landed an elbow while trying to fit a triangle. Takenaka also did a good job of punishing his opponent with a solid ground and pound at the end of the round.

The third and final round started with Wada trying to take down his opponent with a single leg drop (also known as a single leg), but Takenaka defended well. In the sequence, Wada pressed his opponent against the cage's grid and then took him to the ground. After hitting the body in the clinch, he was able to catch Takenaka's back once more, but Takenaka managed to defend himself well and avoided the choke attempt. Afterwards, Takenaka managed to get out of position and land blows from Wada's guard until the end of the fight, but Wada also remained active from below, doing enough to guarantee the victory, albeit by split decision (2-1).

With the result, Wada secured a check for 300.000 yen (US$2.700) in addition to his wrestling bag, which was handed over by Yoshihiro Akiyama himself. After earning the “Sexyama” bonus, Wada improved his MMA record to 23-11-2 while Takenaka dropped to 13-3-1.

The 'co-main event' (or 'co-main event') on the card was a match between Shinya Aoki and Shutaro Debana played under the rules of 'grappling'. The confrontation ended in a tie, since none of the athletes managed to submit until the end of regulation time.

“Road to ONE 5th: Sexyama Edition” will be produced by Yoshihiro Akiyama in Japan

The ONE Championship announced that “Road to ONE 5th: Sexyama Edition” will be held at Shibuya O-East in Shibuya, Tokyo, Japan on October 5, 2021 (a Tuesday in Japan).

With the cooperation of Chatri Sityodtong (CEO of ONE Championship), Kazuhiro Sakamoto (Shooto & VTJ 'Promoter'), Shigeyoshi Akiyama (Sustain), Yuji Kitano (ABEMATV) and Ryo Chonan (Trybe Tokyo MMA), it looks like they will be able to. to perform “Road to ONE 5th: Sexyama Edition” this time.

The tournament will be broadcast exclusively 'live' on ABEMATV, as announced by Mr. Yuji Kitano.

Yoshihiro Akiyama himself, fighter known by the nickname “Sexyama”, struggled a lot to get sponsors for this MMA competition.

-“Due to the prolonged health crisis, I learned that beginning fighters have fewer opportunities to fight than I do at 46 years old. However, I have not been able to attract enough sponsors to run the tournament previously. But now, while I was recovering from an injury, I called my friends to raise funds and we decided to do 'Road to ONE 5th: Sexyama Edition' this time.”-announced Akiyama, through his social networks.

Hideyuki Hata, ONE Championship Japan branch representative, is also supporting the holding of the event.

-“I am delighted to be able to hold the fifth 'Road to ONE' this time, after the tournament in February this year. We will be able to provide more fighting opportunities for athletes. We will take preventive measures against infection by the new coronavirus. I am so honored to be here and deeply grateful to everyone involved. I hope that all participating fighters will be able to offer a brilliant tournament for everyone. Look forward to it," he said in a press release.

The event's 'card' will be “announced at a later date”, but there is another question that remains: will Akiyama himself participate only as a producer of the tournament or will he also fight? Will there be enough time for him to recover from his injury?

With a 'record' in MMA consisting of 15 wins, 7 losses and 2 'No Contest', Yoshihiro Akiyama is currently part of the ONE Championship's squad. His most recent fight was a “KO” victory over Sheriff Mohammed in the ONE main event in February 2020. In the future, he would like to promote an ONE tournament: “Japan vs. Korea".

Stay tuned for additional information about this tournament produced by Yoshihiro Akiyama.
