PANCRASE279 took place on 24th July 2016 at FULL HOUSE of Differ Ariake.
With Maxium attendance here! (announced by CEO Sakai-san!)
Current Bantam Weight KING of PANCRASE Ishiwatari took TUF 12-Winner Jonathan Brookins as title match. Ishiwatari fought with Brookins a year and 9 months ago here [Differ Ariake] and Ishiwatari lost. So This fight was a REVENGE fight for him. (For Jonathan, he missed his weight-making (+0.9kg) for this fight.)
Ishiwatari could prove his strength and capability with this fight (to the world) and after his winning Ishiwatari said the strong desire to fight at UFC. It’s time!
“Dancing MMA” Yasunaga…he won over to “Brazilian Tower” Rildeci Lima Dias with his MMA 4 months ago… and former SHOOTO champion “SAMURAI” Miki fought for being 3rd Fly Weight KING of PANCRASE. For almost all rounds Miki chased quick-moving Yasunaga and Miki won by decision. There are 2 Key words. The balance and the strategy to “the game” (to go and NOT to go).
With 12 years absence Yushin “Thunder” Okami returned to PANCRASE and took Current Welter-Weight King of PANCRASE from ALLIANCE Shingo Suzuki. And Okami won by rear-choke with his strong confidence of his strength. Just strong.
For years PANCRASE has invited foreign fighters and arranged fights with [Japanese fighters VS foreign fighters] aggressively. And these effort makes Japanese fighters “LEVEL-UP” to be able to compete to world’s MMA like UFC. And obviously this is the strong and good PATH to world’s MMA for Japanese fighters.
