The Shooto event in Shinjuku Face is over. I was not able to make it to this one, but I will be at Pancrase tomorrow.
It was a strong card, good talents and match-ups on this one. Takuya Sato got a strong win over Taisuke Okuno and Guy Delameau is continuing his strong form. Will be be able to climb into the Shooto rankings?
