Gomi, Ishida, Sato, Fujii In Action This Weekend at ‘Shooto Tradition Final’


(Megumi Fujii: 52 kilos of walking death.)

Yeah, we pretty much slept on this card since mentioning it once like two months ago — that’s our bad, and we’re just going to have to live with it — but Shooto Tradition is having its star-studded "Road to 20th Anniversary Final" show this Sunday in Tokyo, featuring lightweight PRIDE legend Takanori Gomi, unstoppable female fighter Megumi Fujii, and more big names. Unfortunately it won’t televised in the U.S., but we promise to get all the best fight vids up by Monday. Nightmare of Battle passes along the compete lineup, which is after the jump, and quite sick-looking…


Shooto Lightweight Title Fight (3 5-minute rounds)
9. "Lion" Takeshi Inoue vs. Rumina Sato [Ed. note: Why does a guy on a three-fight losing streak in Shooto get to fight for a title? Because one time he did this, that's why.]

Non-Title Fights (3 5-minute rounds)
8. Takanori Gomi vs. Shooto World Welterweight (154-lb) Champion Takashi Nakakura
7. Shooto Pacific Rim Welterweight Champion Yusuke Endo vs. Willamy Chiquerim
6. Mitsuhiro Ishida vs. Mizuto Hirota
5. Kenichiro Togashi vs. Tetsuji Kato
4. Kotetsu Boku vs. Yutaka Ueda

Non-Title Fights (2 5-minute rounds)
3. "Wicky" Akiyo Nishiura vs. Takumi Ota
2. Megumi Fujii vs. Choi Em Bun
1. Sol Kyung-Pyo vs. Takesuke Kume

This is the first video I have seen of Fujii. If this video is a good representation of her, I like Fujii's skills, spirit, and sportsmanship.

oh, by the way. Women in sports = epic fail, and that includes mma.

no you stupid loser, it's me again. Go watch TV or something, Sezam Street is on, your favorite show. I'll comment here for now and you can't do anything about it. And stop pretending to be me idiot, i am the real SCM.
SCM- May 8, 2009 at 5:24 pm
Wow another imposter. Your fucking sick bro.

Mega Megu is a monster. Pretty sure she can destroy guys in similar weight classes.

I understand most are saying there are not enough women fighters to fill a competitive weight class. But even if there were, it would still be unwatchable. Women's MMA is like women's basketball. No wait, it's even worse.
?CM- May 8, 2009 at 3:43 pm
wow, thank you very much Ben. I am really greatful that u banned that asshole that pretended to be me. I am now forever in your debt, ask whatever you want and I will give to you. Thank you man!

wow, i almost fell asleep watching her double-leg/armbar technique.
It would not take much to train for that, why does win?

but at the same time, if there are few really talented fighters and they run out of high level competition to showcase it could be popular for a little while and then simply fall into obscurity. if women's mma is going to become big it has to have more talent and at least one complete division that they can put on every other card or something.

I love the sport of MMA, and to me, technique is just as impressive as explosive power, or huge takedowns. With the proper marketing the UFC could make any casual UFC fan interested, by highlighting the technical skills of female fighters. Womens MMA is at a point where it needs support, to encourage more women to begin taking up the sport, thus filling the gaps in weight classes, and hopefully elevating the level of Womens MMA.

Wow, its already working. The comments section is readable again. That being said women's mma has a long way to go before it is on the ufc. and as it should be. There aren't enough fighters to sustain elite competition. There aren't enough names to power a weight class. And probably most importantly the weight classes have some bugs that need to be worked out as evidenced by both cyborg and carano up to this point. Women's mma is really a work in progress at this point.

mdollas: morgan is that u?
Anhonestmoose- May 8, 2009 at 2:31 pm
wow, i actually just got done watching the HL and megumi is impressive
SCM- May 8, 2009 at 2:29 pm
Thank the lord. THANK YOU! Seriously though i think that was Caps lock as the imposter on my name.
SCM- May 8, 2009 at 2:27 pm
Youll see that you will get banned.
Half Amazing- May 8, 2009 at 2:25 pm
War Mega Megu!!! I think she could take Gina even though shes only 115.

By the way, good look on requiring users to register. The old system made the comments unreadable because of all the shenanigans going on.
Tall White and Working- May 8, 2009 at 2:24 pm
The Honest Moose was right.
Women MMA is kinda like the WNBA. Differant set of skills and more technical, but not as explosive or exciting. It just doesn't do anything for me.
Anhonestmoose- May 8, 2009 at 2:19 pm
i'm so confused! why can't everyone just be honest?
Anhonestmoose- May 8, 2009 at 2:14 pm
the first few days of this registering thing are gonna b hilarious. trust me on that, i am honest after all.
Tall White and Working- May 8, 2009 at 2:13 pm
@ben- it has been pointed out that there might be 2 scm on the site. they have two varying membership terms. FYI.
i like the structure of the rules here.
Blumpkin- May 8, 2009 at 2:11 pm
@ SCM

i agree that the first's shouldn't get banned...

everyone gets tempted sometimes.
ben- May 8, 2009 at 2:08 pm
@ SCM:sarah's right, it was an imposter.  The real OBI is staying away until all the bugs are worked out.
ken-mura- May 8, 2009 at 2:08 pm
I think I like Satoko Shinashi better than Fugii.
