I have been hoping this day would come for a long time! Ryota Matsune will return to the ring, against another Shooto legend, Rumina Sato. The fight was announced today at Shooto GIG Tokyo Vol. 4.
The card is shaping up to be one of the best Shooto cards in a while, even with the Vale Tudo card last year. There are 3 fights on the card, and they are all good fights too.
Also worth noting is that there are 3 fighters from Paraestra Matsudo, where Ryota Matsune is the MMA coach.
