Pancrase 265 took place on March 15, 2015 in Tokyo, Japan. In the World Slam Lightweight Tournament Finale Satoru Kitaoka earned a Unanimous Decision over Akira Okada.
DEEP Champ Kitaoka used a game of relentless takedowns to frustrate Okada for three rounds. With the win, Kitaoka earns a shot at King ISAO’s belt – eventually. Kitaoka spoke his mind about how great DEEP is, so let’s see how quick he gets an offer.
Kazuki Tokudome put himself firmly back in the rankings in his first bout post-UFC at home in Japan. He overwhelmed and outclassed Yoshiro Koyama with strikes and nailed a brutal first round KO.
Andy Main became the first person to finish Japanese prospect Hulk Oshiro. He did so in a minute by locking up a triangle. Main called out for a title shot against Nam Phan after the win. He’s ranked fourth in Pancrase featherweights right now, behind fallen former King Takumi and number one contender Guy Delumeau.
King Mitsuhisa Sunabe knocked out Seiji Ozuka in the second round. Yusuke Ogikubo barely eked by on the scorecards against “Shian”. Yuki Baba ran into more bad luck named Lenny Wheeler who knocked him out in 18 seconds. Canadian fighters from the television series Fight Xchange went two out of three in their matches.
