On Friday in Kitazawa Townhall, K'z Factory held "Kitazawa Shooto 2009 Vol. 2", without the biggest Shooto stars, but ith some stars in the making. Yoshioka's record might not have been the best going in, and just looking at that he was probably the underdog here. He did however bring tons of experience against top fighters. Yoshioka was able to use an omopalata to sweep Hiroyuki Abe, in the process getting in top position and finishing the fight with a guillotine choke. This was a fight that will impact the flyweight Shooto rankings.
In the co-main event Matsufuji's 3 fight winning streak was broken just 39 seconds into the fight, when Akagi landed a left hook that KOed the 31 year old fighter.
