Vale Tudo Japan’s return event just keeps getting better and better. Today two more matches were added to the stacked card and one of them is a women’s fight of legendary proportions.
Despite heavy rumors of her retirement, Megumi Fujii will return to the ring at least one more time to face fellow legend, “V.V” Mei Yamaguchi, for the very first time.
Megumi is widely considered the greatest female fighter in the history of MMA but a pair of highly controversial decision losses in Bellator along with the difficulty of finding big fights at her weight and mounting injuries, had many, including her, talking of retirement.
However it seems VTJ have a fight tempting enough to lure her back and no one can ever say V.V Mei isn’t an extremely tough challenge. The Valkyrie FW champ Mei has beaten some of the very best, not only in MMA, but Shoot Boxing as well and has never been finished in either sport. Mei is fresh off another impressive run in the Shoot Boxing Girls S-Cup, that saw her once again get all the way to the finals before losing on points to RENA.
We will have a full breakdown of this epic fight soon.
Also announced was a 177 lbs fight between Sengoku Welterweight GP winner, Keita “K-Taro” Nakamura and undefeated 9-0 (all KO’s) ZST knockout artist Nobutatsu Suzuki.
