Japan MMA is reporting that Japan’s HEAT promotion, which features a combination of kickboxing and MMA, has announced an initial line-up for their upcoming November 1 event.
November 1, 2009
Kick Heavy: Tatsufumi Tomihira vs. Yuki “Strike” Tanaka
Kick Heavy: Makoto vs. Scorpion
Kick Middle: Tadamasa Tomihira vs. Marushio Matsumoto
Kick 60kg: Mari Sakai vs. King Kohei
MMA Feather: Jun Kito vs. Masahiro Iwasaki
The biggest name here is probably K-1 veteran Tatsufumi Tomihara, last seen in K-1 being KO’d by Ruslan Karaev at the 2008 GP in Taipei, but this is still a solid card of up and coming Japanese fighters.
