Two big fights have been added to Vale Tudo Japan’s return show on Christmas Eve. The first one is a real dream match up, as Shooto Demi-god Rumina Sato takes on fan favorite Hideo Tokoro. This will be both men’s first fight all year and will be Tokoro’s first fight since his downright scary slam KO loss to Yusup Saadulaev last NYE.
The second match announced sees Carlo Prater, fresh off a lackluster UFC run, try and get himself back on track against one of Japan’s top lightweights, Kuniyoshi Hironaka, who will be looking to extend his winning streak to five.
These matches join the previously announced Mamoru Yamaguchi vs. Darrell Montague and Kyoji Horiguchi vs. Ian Loveland.
