2/28 Shooto GIG Tokyo Vol. 1 - RESULTS

Sunday, 1 March 2009

The first ever Shooto Gig Tokyo event took place yesterday in Shinjuku Face. It was an intersting card with some good talent and fights that, even though there were no title fights, they will have an impact on the Shooto rankings.

An upset, in my opion, in the co-main event. Shinya Murofushi, ranked #2 flyweight, went down to "Heat" Takeshi. I thought it would be a close fight, Takeshi submitting Murofushi is just over a minute is very impressive and will have an impact on the rankings.

The main event saw 2 very experienced competitors in Kenichiro Togashi and Ganjo Tentsuku face off. This was always going to be a close encounter, and Togashi came out on top again. This is the second time they have met, both times the fight has gone the distance and both times Togashi has gotten the decision.

Welter: Kenichiro Togashi Def. Ganjo Tentsuku by Decision 2-0
Fly: "Heat" Takeshi Sato Def. Shinya Murofushi by rear-naked choke Round 1 1:14
Welter: Komei Okada vs. vs. Shinobu Miura Draw
Welter: Hisaki Hiraishi Def. Koichi Taguchi by Decision 3-0
