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".

MMA athletes from the North and Northeast regions win Shooto Brasil 108 in Rio de Janeiro

Created in 1985, Shooto is classified as 'the father of Japanese MMA' and has already been considered the “Pride of the lightweights”, in addition to having revealed great names in mixed martial arts to the world. Already established in countries such as the USA, Finland, Australia, Netherlands, Norway, Germany and England, among others, the event arrived in Brazil in 2003.
Now, again, the oldest franchise in the sport in the modern era is back in our country.

Shooto Brasil 108 was held with a strict prevention protocol against Covid-19. The rules were elaborated together with the Brazilian Athletic Commission of MMA ( CABMMA ). All athletes involved in the event were tested with a quick test on the day of the fight and at the weigh-in.
The event took place on Saturday (July 26, 2021) and took place at the Upper Arena, Rio de Janeiro-RJ.

The 'card' consisted of 26 MMA fights, 22 of which were male and 04 female. Highlight for some of the athletes from the North and Northeast regions of the country who won their fights in what is one of the most important promotions in Latin America.

Among these, we can mention the Amapá fighter, Juscelino Pantoja, who made his second fight at Shooto Brasil.
The confrontation, held in the flyweight category (+57 kg at Shooto) lasted just 1 minute and 48 seconds. As promised, the Amapá native knocked out Erick “Iguana” Gomes from Sergipe in the first round and won his second victory in the organization.
With 100% success in the sport, Pantoja climbed to 2-0, while Erik dropped to 1-1.

-“Thank you to everyone who cheered for me. I thank God for one more victory and a fulfilled promise, one more knockout ”.-said, after the victory.

It's worth remembering that, in his debut for the franchise, in November of last year, the fighter knocked out the Amazonian, Anthony “Boika” at 4m49s of the 1st round, at Shooto Brasil 104.

Among the women who entered the Shooto Brasil 108 octagon, we highlight the athlete from Valencia-BA, Flordinice Muniz, a boxing and Jiu-Jitsu fighter, who had already won an MMA belt at DM Fight 2, in March of this year, as well. in Rio de Janeiro.
She beat experienced Sergipe Anne Karoline, also known as “Karol Mutante”, by split decision of the judges after three rounds.
As a result, Flordinice moved up to 2-0, while her opponent dropped to 7-9.

After the victory, the Valencian athlete was very excited, thanking all the support she had and the fans in her city celebrated on their social networks.

-"You don't know what it's like to lose in MMA."-said the narrator of the event, after the announcement of the second success of the fighter in her beginning of her career.

Check out the results of Shooto held on Sunday in Japan


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.

Mina Kurobe is the 1st female super atom champion in Shooto

On Saturday, August 1, 2020, Korakuen Hall, the “sacred place” for martial arts in Japan, once again hosted an MMA tournament for the first time in 188 days. And as proof that he is back in business, Professional Shooto promoted Shooto 0801, which was attended by the audience that attended the 'live' event, in addition to the fans who followed the broadcast on ABEMA TV.
In the 'main event' (or “main event”) we had the final of the female super atom weight tournament between athletes Mina Kurobe (16-5), 43 years old, and Megumi Sugimoto (5-2), 30 years old, whose winner would go down in Shooto's history, as the category's inaugural champion in the most traditional MMA promotion of the modern era.
Many believed that the title would be won by Megumi Sugimoto (AACC), as his youth should prevail over the experience of Mina Kurobe (Master Japan), but that was not exactly what happened.
After the first minutes of the opening round, Kurobe applied pressure and closed the distance with good combinations. Sugimoto managed to keep the fight on his feet thanks to his solid defense against the veteran's attempts at takedowns, only to be able to impose himself with a frantic “striking” of punches and kicks.
In the next round, Kurobe punished his opponent with “dirty boxing”. Sugimoto often found herself trapped in the cage grid and, unable to escape, was hit by clinch knees. There was still a new 'striking' and attempted movement with the athletes again attached to the grid.
In the third round, Sugimoto manages to find himself in the fight again and even tries a "Super-Man" punch, while Kurobe tries a 'single leg', in an attempt to take the fight to the ground. In addition, the round was a repeat of the previous ones.
In the end, the decision was 3-0 (30-27 × 3) for Kurobe, who won on the judges' decision and became the first “Queen of Shooto”, in addition to receiving a check for 1 million yen (US $ 9.400).
In the 'co-main event' (or 'co-main event') the title of “pacific champion” in the Shooto bantamweight category was disputed by Tatsuya Ando and Takumi Tamaru. The athletes defined the fight well before the start of the second round, showing a true MMA show to the fans.
Ando (11-2-1) took the belt home after beating Takumi Tamaru (11-2-1) by technical knockout (punches), still in the opening round.
In another fight worthy of mention, Ryohei Kurosawa (13-2) improved his reputation as a 'striker' by delivering two solid kicks to Takamasa Kiuchi's legs (15-12-2), in addition to landing a strong blow to his head, knocking him down. Kiuchi would still return to the fight, and suffered another punishment, until the referee intervened to save him.
Check out the complete results of “Shooto 0801” that include:
Shooto 0801

Pancrase vs. Shooto Challenge to Select ONE: 'Century' Fighters

A mixed martial arts event titled Road to ONE: 'Century' is scheduled to take place on Studio Coast in Tokyo, the capital of Japan, on September 1.
The promotion will feature the 'Pancrase vs Shooto' challenge, as it will be hosted by ONE Championship, Shooto and Pancrase.

Initially, the event announced for Studio Coast on that date would be the "PANCRASE REBELS RING", but with the appointment of Miki Yamaguchi - from REBELS - as producer of KNOCK OUT, the show was renamed "ONE JAPAN SERIES - Road to CENTURY - ” and now will feature MMA, Kickcobxing and Muay Thai fights.

This will be the first time the Rich Franklin's ONE Warrior Series (OWS) Kickboxing rules will be used at every stage of a tournament in Japan, as is the case with the ONE Championship MMA rules.

Promoters also took advantage of Shooto's 30th anniversary tour to continue to see fighters from both franchises participate in qualifying for upcoming promotion events whose CEO is Chatri Sityodtong.

The already announced confrontation between Akiyo Nishiura (14-8-1) and Kleber Koike Erbst (24-5-1), will probably be the 'main event' of this 'One Japan Series: Road to Century'.

All this movement is already part of the preparations for the attractions that will take place in Japan during the month of October around the second show of the ONE Championship in the country, initially with the "World Martial Arts Week".

Bellesalle Shibuya Garden inclusive is already booked for 5 and 6 October, when 'ONE Martial Fan Fest' will feature open practice with the organisation's stars and “live” MMA fights.
The occasion will also mark the debut of the “One Tekken Tokyo Invitational”, which is focused on e-sports and will be attended by the world's best 'Tekken' players.

We will have yet another “ONE Warrior Series (OWS)” event in Tokyo, this time with the theme 'Japan Vs. the World, which as the subtitle suggests will place local fighters against international opponents and be the first in a series of cards.

All of this will culminate in the historic 100th edition of the event already baptized as ONE: 'Century', scheduled for Sunday, October 13, which will take place at Tokyo's iconic Ryögoku Kokugikan.

The 100 ONE Championship event's 'card' will feature at least three major fights valid for title contests with Aung La Nsang, Bibiano Fernandes and Angela Lee, all defending their belts.

Mauricio "Bad Boy" Machado will fight Shooto Brazil next May 26

Lightweight Mauricio "Bad Boy", is fighting marked in the Shooto. Created in 1985, Shooto is the father of Japanese MMA. The oldest franchise of the modality in the modern era continues in activity to the present day.

It was Shooto Japan who, still in 1994, promoted the Vale Tudo Japan Open, eliminatory tournament that marked the victorious debut of Rickson Gracie in the land of the Rising Sun.

At the beginning of the 2000 years, Shooto had advanced with its expansion plans and was already deployed in the USA, Finland, Australia, Holland, Norway, Germany, England and Brazil.

The franchise began its activities in our country at the beginning of 2003 and after nine editions of Shooto Brasil with "Z" the then promoters Alexandre 'Pequeno' Nogueira and his partner Toniko Júnior left the scene to give to the new national producers.

However, few people know that an event in the 'basckstage' almost prevented the promotion from going ahead on national territory.

Alexandre 'Pequeno' had to return the belt of seven-time Shooto World Champion, otherwise Japanese leaders would veto the participation of Brazilian athletes in Japan and the new representative of the franchise in Brazil would not even produce an upcoming show.

Headquartered in the editorial office of the renowned magazine Tatame, the return of the artifact almost did not tear away tears of 'Pequeno', who said: "I am returning the belt with a broken heart."

Following that, Shooto's former king signed a deal with K-1 Hero's, the MMA arm of Japan's most famous "trocation" show at the time.

Already chosen as the new president of the entity in Brazil, André Pederneiras, produced his first show on 2 December of 2006 and marked a new phase of Shooto Brazil with "S".
With the experience of those who had previously traveled to Japan several times, Pederneiras started the new phase of the franchise in our country and that continues to this day.
Shooto Brazil's proposal is to rank the Brazilian fighters and lead the best placed to fight in Japan.

Currently, who is excited about the possibility of fighting in the land of Sol Nascente is the athlete Mauricio “Bad Boy” Machado, from the Ghetto Diamond team, since he was scheduled to fight in the next edition of Shooto Brasil, which takes place on the 26th. de Maio at the Upper Arena, Rio de Janeiro, which will be broadcast live on the Combate channel.

The fighter is a resident and has a social project with free martial arts classes in the Chico Mendes community in Florianópolis-SC. He has a life story of those who got rid of drugs and crime to keep dreaming about fighting.

Mauricio has a cartel with 32 fights, being 21 wins and 11 defeats. The fighter comes from 4 wins followed in the first round and has also fought in several international events, among them the third biggest event in the world, the ACB in Russia and the OFS MMA in Europe.

Mauritian opponent "Bad Boy" will be Hacran Days, which has 23 wins, 6 losses and 1 draw. Hacran is a pupil of André Pederneiras (also leader of the Nova União team, as well as producer of Shooto Brazil) and was recently dismissed from the UFC.

It will be a tough fight, in which Mauricio “Bad Boy” is the underdog and seen as a “ladder” for his rival, but it could also mean an epic victory in the career of the Santa Catarina, who works as a watchman.

However, with little support, he needs to perform medical exams so that he can participate in the event, such as magnetic resonance of the skull, arterial skull angio-resonance, ophthalmologic, physical, hepatitis and hemogram, which cost around R $ 1 thousand.

To collaborate with Mauricio “Bad Boy”:

Anyone who can help, whether financially or getting the exams, can contact 48 98456-5980 or 41 9869-3714 (WhatsApp), which will put the support on the banner that will lead to the fight.
