Shooto Vs. Pancrase! The First 4
Another interesting development currently taking place in Japanese MMA is long time rivals Shooto and Pancrase finally promoting fights between their fighters.
Fights might have already taken place in Pancrase, but at Shooto Revolutionary Exchanges 3 on November 23rd, the first four Pancrase vs. Shooto fights in Shooto will happen.
In a Middleweight fight Takuya Wada (P) will face Shiko Yamashita (S), in a Lightweight fight Kotetsu Boku (S) takes on Yukio Sakaguchi (P) who has stepped in for Koji Oishi, in a Bantamweight fight Mamoru (S) will battle the rising Kiyotaka Shimizu (P), and in a women’s fight Megumi Fujii (S) will look to stay undefeated against Windy Tomomi (P).
Shooto will most likely take most of the wins in the four fights but it’s a very fun and historic development taking place right now.
