Feels like a very long time since Heat held their 1st event in Tokyo, Heat 8 was in December last year. Now they are holding Heat 11 and it will be the first time they have back to back events in Differ Ariake.
Heat 10 was suppose to be the big event, with the finals of the heavyweight tournaments. However, it didnt quite work out as planned when the main event ended in a no contest. The result is that they will have another attempt at determining the Heat heavyweight MMA champion on the HEAT 11 card. Sentoryu will yet again step into the cage and face Christiano Kaminishi.
Also on the card is the Iranian K-1 veteran Prince Ali, he will be taking on the the very experienced Gotoku Onda.
Hiromi Amada will enter the cage for the first time as the champion, and will be taking on Emeka The Black Samurai. I have seen Emeka on some Smokers cards, and this should be a good challenge for him.
Heavyweight Tournament Final:
Henry Miller "Sentoryu" vs. Cristiano Kaminishi
Kick-Heavy: Prince Ali vs. Gotoko Onda
Kick-Heavy: Hiromi Amada vs. Emeka The Black Samurai
MMA-Heavy: Ryo Takigawa 3-2-0 vs. 5-3-2 Shunsuke Inoue
MMA-Feather: Koji Yoshida 3-5-2 vs. 2-5-0 Toshikatsu "Toshi" Harada
