DEEP JEWELS 15
Start 18:00 / End 20:40
DEEP JEWELS 15 took place on 25th February 2017 at FULL HOUSE of Shinjuku FACE.
After RIZIN-NYE 2016 it is obvious that “Japanese Women MMA world” is uptrend and getting HOTTER and HOTTER. With this situation RIZIN CEO Sakakibara-san had a US-Biz trip…San Jose…Seattle…New York… just before this event but he went directly to the arena from the airport to watch it for building his future plan. Some fighters had the desire to show the strength and presence to fight at RIZIN/UFC… some fighters had the desire to become a champ of DEEP JEWELS.
DEEP JEWELS 15 was held with these DESIRES of fighters and high-attention of audience.
Current Atom-Weight Champ Sugi-Rock who has strong right-straight-punch took stamina-monster Mina Kurobe who won 4-in-a-row but lost against Sugi-Rock at DEEP JEWELS 10 in Oct 2015. After the fight winner Kurobe said that many DEEP JEWELS Champions fight at world MMA like ONE Championship and INVICTA so she also wanna fight the world MMA!
Shizuka Sugiyama… UFC Fighter Keitaro Nakamura’s wife and has 1 year-old-baby returned to the ring with 2 years and 3 months’ absence. The opponent Nabe was Judo-based fighter and became an amateur bantam weight SHOOTO champion last year. Sugiyama threw many strikes and Nabe tried to take down… the fight was a so close fight. Winner Sugiyama said the happiness of returning after the fight. Good fight!
RAIKA took the Karate-ka Karate-Komachi who won Kyokushin-Karate competition and will debut MMA (9-1 under kick-boxing rule). RAIKA struggled Komachi’s striking but she had a good ground game. RAIKA won.
After her losing at RIZIN-NYE 2016 Kanna Asakura decided to strengthen her striking skills and she showed her advance with this fight. Asakaura appealed to fight at next RIZIN will be held 2 month later.
KING REINA was famous for her BIG-MOUTH like… ”I’ll go to world MMA soon with only 3 or 4 fights” ”I wanna fight with Ronda Rousey… it’s easy one.” ” Anybody is okay!” and DEEP office prepared the strong opponent Shayna Baszler, former UFC fighter and the student of Josh Barnett. But REINA showed her strength with standing fight and ground fight. Just amazing.
