Shooto have lost a big attraction for their Vale Tudo Japan card, Joe Warren is out, and Rumina Sato will instead face another American wrestler in Cory Grant. The undefeated Team Quest fighter should be a good challenge for Rumina who needs a win.
Also added is a fight between Shooto's rookie tournament champion from 2008, Kosuke Eda. Eda is yet to win a fight in 2008, and he will be taking on Makoto Sannai, another talented fighter.
