    5/10 Shooto The Final Tradition - Gomi to make a Return to Shooto

    Shooto will hold the final event in their Tradition series (celebrating 20 years of Shooto), in May. The event will take place in JCB Hall, where also the first "Tradition" event took place.

    This card will be a solid one, the fights announced holds some of the biggest Shooto profiles, and there is more to come.

    Former champion Takanori Gomi will return to Shooto and it is going to take on the current champion Takashi Nakakura in what should be an awesome fight. Gomi is coming off 2 straight losses and will be eager to get back on the winning track. It is 6 years since Gomi fought in Shooto, that time he lost a decision to the current DREAM champion Joachim Hansen. Nakakura on the other hand, is on a 5 fight winning streak and has not lost since August 2005 when he fought Mitsuhiro Ishida.

    Other fights announced were Koutetsu Boku vs. the Shooto prospect from Kyoto, Yutaka Ueda. Ueda is undefeated in Shooto, but will still come in as the underdog agianst the former Pacific champion and DREAM veteran.

    The current lightweight champion "Lion" Takeshi is taking on the veteran Rumina Sato. The popular Rumina really needs a win here, having only 1 win in his last 6 fights. But the champion is not going to make it easy for him to get back on the winning track.

    Announced:
    Takanori Gomi 29-5-0 vs. 11-2-1 Takashi Nakakura
    Koutetsu Boku 13-5-2 vs. 6-1-1 Yutaka Ueda
    "Lion" Takeshi Inoue 15-3-0 vs. 24-13-2 Rumina Sato
    looks to be a killer card.

    Man, Moon Wolf can't catch a break these days eh?

    You'd think a dude with such a strong reputation in Japan wouldn't be fed to the wolves every single fight.

    Nakakura is legit, he is by no means a can being fed to Gomi. If Gomi fights like he has recently then I definitely can see Nakakura winning. If the Gomi of old returns then it's a whole new ballgame, but that's still to be seen.

    I love watching Gomi, but his lack of desire is a problem.

    I'm pleased they didn't throw Gomi a can to knock over.
