    Je Hoon Moon vs Kevin Petshi

    Moon is a solid vet from ROAD, I don't think he can hang with Kawajiri, Horiguchi, or maybe Ishiwatari but will be a good test for everyone else. I don't know much about Petshi but he has a decent looking record, though he's lost to the notable names he fought.

    57kg
    Tenshin Nasukawa vs Yamato Fujita

    Couldn't find a boxing record for Fujita but if you search his name you will find a lot of footage for him. Looks like he's doing his MMA training at Reversal Gym Shinjuku Me, We and getting work in with Kizaemon, Kanako, and Shizuka Sugiyama.

    3 kickboxing bouts
    Ryota Renseigym vs Yoshihisa Morimoto
    Yuuki vs Kuroki Darvish
    Issei Ishii vs Jin Mandokoro

    I recognize a few of the kickboxing names but I'm not overly familiar with them

    I dont mind the addition of kickboxing bouts. Fukuoka area prefers kickboxing over mma anyway.

    For those unfamiliar with Je Hoon Moon, here's his last fight, where he knocked out undefeated prospect Kai Asakura by 3rd round KO. Sakakibara was in attendance that night.

    I bought mine on stubhub awhile back on the 2nd day of availability - A class i think. It was almost sold out and there were like less than 10 left. It's Japan though so I think they distribute the tix to various retailers (ticket pia etc). Not sure how well those did but since several big names are on the card i'm not surprised it's doing very well.

    I'm not sure what to make of the kickboxing fights. Wish they reduced the no. of fights and brought in maybe Andy Souwer instead to fight a striker.

    The Darvish dude has to be related to the Dodgers' Yuu Darvish right?

    Moon is a tough journeyman, this is going to be a striking match for sure.

    The kickboxing is just to play to the local audience, half of them are from Fukuoka and Yuuki is a pretty well known guy in the area.

    Didn't Yu Darvish's brother get knocked silly in one of the gangster promotions years ago? I think it was in OUTSIDER but I don't remember.

    Also I was looking up some info on Fujita, looks like he was an amateur All Japan boxing champion and is from a family of boxers.

    poor guy Tenshin, not allowed to fight kickboxing under Sakakibara.


    Issei Ishii fight should be a banger.

    Moon jae hoon lost to Thiago silva, the Brazilian the dude who Main evented the very last acb event in Kazakhstan and won by sub. Moon lost to Thiago but if u watch the fight, moon jae hoon was fkin fucking him up the whole time until he got taken down and then submitted. That was the very time when I started watching moon jae hoons fights.

    Moon's wins are better than his losses, very inconsistent.

    “The Destroyer” has had all but one of his MMA fights in the new Japanese upstart promotion Rizin FC, where he has twice lost by submission. During the interview it was obvious that the match making process and negotiations for his next fight were not going well.

    “They don’t give me any opportunity to perform and to accomplish my goals step by step. They give me, for example, the next veteran from the UFC with almost 30 MMA fights. I think they are just using me and they are using my name.”

    I hope this doesn't mean we don't see Souwer in Japan again. He won a recent MMA fight in Holland and i think he can do well if matched against the right opponents (ie not a wrestler)

    The Daron Cruickshank matchmaking for Souwer was rough, but the Miyata one was decent. Souwer is a bigger name than those two Rizin losses, so I think they were trying to build him up fast. They rushed Baby Yamamoto as well with him facing Kron Gracie and Hideo Tokoro.

    Kawajiri is back on the winning sauce.

    Fuck you made me LOL. Perfectly captured a certain aspect of JMMA.
