Shooto Card this Saturday

There are a few fun fights on this card******

Shooto Lightweight Championship
Hideki Kadowaki vs** Takeshi Inoue
Hatsu Hioki vs** Rumina Sato
Takashi Nakakura vs** Bendy Casimir
Atsushi Takeuchi vs** Katsuya Murofushi
So Tazawa vs** Hiromasa Ogikubo
Jin Kazeta vs** Yutaka Ueda
Taisuke Okuno vs** Daisuke Okumiya
Nobuhiro Hayakawa vs** Yuta Nezu

Kadowaki is coming off wins over Rumina Sato and Akitoshi Tamura, which is very impressive** (Remember in Shooto LW division is 143lbs) So this should be a good fight with Lion**

Hatsu Hioki, Top 10 Featherweight on most rankings is fighting the legend Rumina Sato, who is coming off the loss to Akitoshi Tamura earlier this year, in a for sure FOTY candidate fight** Try and catch that one if you haven't yet**

Nakakura is the Welterweight champion (154lbs), he's fighting Bendy Casimir** Both these guys are on sick streaks, you may have seen Casimir in M-1, on the France vs** Red Devils show** (Non Title Fight)

So Tazawa vs** Hiromasa Ogikubo

Both of these are decent fighters, Ogikubo is a nice prospect, good wrestler, has some nice G+P when he gets you down too** So opponents often turn and give their back, he has shown great back control when his opponents try and squirm out**

So Tazawa has been fighting solid opposition for a while now, so this will be a big step up for Ogikubo**

I've gotta go ahead and pick Tazawa to win, he's the one I'm more sure of after seeing him fight good guys over and over, he has a nice armbar win over "BJ" Kojima, who is a Shooto champion** If Ogikubo can win this fight and improve to 6-0, then that is very impressive**

So those are the 4 fights to watch out for**

Fedor fights I want to see..

Fedor vs. Josh Barnett
Fedor vs. Randy Couture
Fedor vs. Tim Sylvia - DEMOLISHED
Fedor vs. Andrei Arlovski - DEMOLISHED

hmmmmm, i wonder how many become reality..

Excellent, it's good to see Shooto still pumpin out solid cards** Great to see Rumina still hangin in there, but he's definitely not what he used to be**
