    Awesome trailer. How is Shooto nowadays anyway? At what level would you rank the overall talent among other organisations?

    Shooto has the esteem of their history, but they're below DEEP at this point, probably neck and neck with Pancrase

    Epic promo. I'd never actually seen Horiguchi vs Ishiwatari 1. Looks like it was an absolute war.

    I thought Hellowhosthat was saying Taira is the best JMMA prospect...

    Imo he is, but I don't know about the overall depth of the organisations, I'm also very interested in checking out Yusaku Kinoshita who fights for Pancrase, but I can never seem to find his fights.

    Is Taira ever gonna cross over to the UFC or will he be signed with Rizin eventually and stay there indefinitely.

    I read he wants the UFC rather than Rizin or One but time will tell.

    He might be, but DEEP overall are still cranking out quality youngsters at a higher rate than anyone else

    Taira only wants to fight in the UFC, but he’ll probably have to wait a while before they sign him

    Japan has a couple of talented fighters coming. Taira, Yamato Nishikawa and Rinya Nakamura are the stand-outs.

    The media in Japan are extremely excited about Rei Tsuruya and Seika Izawa, understandably. I think Makoto Shinryu is more proven than Taira.

    It's nice to see that JMMA is coming back alive after the dark days of the post PRIDE days. It's the birth place of modern MMA after all.

    The 2010s VTJ shows always had a nice mix of old school and new school. Excited to see what else they can bring.

    What do you think of Kinoshita? He looks to be smashing everyone but I can never find his fights.
