The legendary Minowaman ( also known as Ikuhisa Minowa ) competed in his 100th professional mixed martial arts bout yesterday at ROAD FC 13. The 37 year old veteran knocked out Team Tackle’s Hoon Kim in the first round via a devastating overhand right, it is only Minowa’s 8th KO victory of his career. A perfect way to celebrate your 100th MMA fight, Minowa’s career started all the way back in 1996 and he has fought for Pancrase, UFC, DEEP, PRIDE, Cage Rage, HERO’S and DREAM. The highest point of his career came when he won the DREAM Super Hulk tournament in 2009, knocking out Sokoujou in the finals.

At this weekend’s Pancrase show, promotional Champion Rin Nakai earned her biggest victory to date. The significantly shorter Nakai primarily used kicks to attack while they were standing up and as the fight went on she was able to take Larosa down and go for submissions and ground and pound. The first round saw Nakai circle with kicks while Larosa worked her punches. The judges scored the round 10-10. There was significantly more action in the second round as Larosa stunned Nakai with a right. However, Larosa was not able to capitalize on the opportunity. Instead Nakai was able to take Larosa down. For the rest of the round Nakai got back control several times and threatened with a RNC. Despite Larosa’s solid punch in the beginning of the round, Nakai’s strong recovery and submission attempts made 2 of the judges score it a 10-10 round whereas 1 judge scored it 10-9 for Larosa. The final round was all Nakai. After getting the takedown, Nakai went for submission attempts and landed some solid ground and pound till the round ended. Her strong showing in the final round earned her a 10-8 and 2 10-9′s from the judges. As a result, the final score was 30-28,30-29,29-29. A majority decision win for Nakai. This is a huge victory for Nakai and shows a solid step up in competition. As for Larosa, this marks the 4th loss of her long career and is the 1st time she has lost consecutive fights.

Pancrase 252: Nakai vs. LaRosa, Yamamoto Out Of Super Flyweight Title Bout

Bantamweight Queen of Pancrase Rin Nakai will face her biggest challenge yet when she faces the highly regarded Tara LaRosa at Pancrase 252. LaRosa, who has captured gold in both the bantamweight and super flyweight categories, was recently announced as one of the cast members for the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter: Team Rousey vs Team Tate. Her inclusion in Pancrase 252 comes as a shock as she was seen as one of the favourites to win TUF. It looks Nakai’s belt will not be on the line but her undefeated streak ( 14-0-1) certainly will be.

KRAZY BEE’s Atsushi Yamamoto has been forced out of his Super flyweight title bout against Kiyotaka Shimizu with a broken orbital bone. It is unknown whether Pancrase will look for a replacement opponent for Shimizu or postpone the bout to a later event.
