Nakamura Victorious At ADCC Japan! Clash With SENGOKU Colleague In Final
SENGOKU fighters Kazuhiro Nakamura and Yukiya Naito clashed in the -99 kg division final of the ADCC Asia Qualifiers yesterday in Japan. It ended with a point victory by 7 to 1 for SENGOKU Middleweight GP runner-up Nakamura.
Another Nakamura won the -77 kg division tournament when DREAM veteran KTaro Nakamura choked out his opponent, Yoshinao Shitabayashi, in the final. MMA veteran Kohei Yasumi won the -66 kg division, Yukinori Haruhara won the -88 kg division, and Koji Kanechika won the +99 kg division.
Kazuhiro, who decided that he would participate around one week ago, did not know the rules of the matches very well and was seen at times asking the referee if what he was doing was OK. He won the quarterfinal by heel hook and the semifinal by armbar. He is not sure yet if he will participate in the World ADCC tournament but he definitely wants to.
