Shooto Rankings

Monday, 30 June 2008

I have been asked if there are any rankings in Japan. The answer is that there is none that I know of, exept for he ones the different organizations maintain. This is the latest Shooto ranking, and it is NOT new. This is more a post signaling that I will try to keep you up to date with the latest Shooto and Pancrase (coming soon) rankings.

Cheers for that, I think it's a great idea to keep updated translations of the rankings. The two missing names are Ronald Jhun and I believe the other is Roemer Trumpert from Holland.
