DEEP 62ND IMPACT PPV AND STREAM ON JAPAN’S SKY PERFECT

Just announced on Boutholic.com comes news of a pay per view for DEEP 62nd Impact on April 26, 2013.  Full translation at the end of the article.

The trend of Asian MMA rising has taken on a high test-fueled burst of growth with DEEP‘s new social media presence in English and a YouTube channel aimed at getting the past fights more visible along with more intimate workings of the organization.  Since Japan’s A-league DREAM slouched into rarity, DEEP has taken up the mantle of many of its stars, upgrading from B-level feeder league to capitalizing upon the most internationally well-knon names in Japanese MMA.  Now everything seems to be heading towards a cosmic big bang with DEEP finally launching a live PPV and internet stream broadcast of DEEP 62nd Impact.  So far the PPV and stream will be through Japan-only Sky PerfecTV, but the stream is promised to be available internationally, and MMA-in-ASIA will keep you informed.

At possibly no time other than this card could a global launch come at a more opportune time for the promotion to make it’s legitimate debut onto the global stage.  The ‘cult’ of JMMA could go mainstream with the sheer number of stellar matches it has made on the card.  There are revenge matches, out-of-retirement matches, weight class drops, style-versus-style matches – things you won’t typically see in ordered leagues built on making champions.  Many of these matches are just pure fun.  But in all seriousness, the fourteen matches slated featuring twenty-eight fighters have a whopping SIX HUNDRED bouts between them.

There are no fewer than three titles on the line – Lightweight, Bantamweight, and Welterweight. Dice-K Nakamura, the Lightweight champ, has fought for more organizations than possibly anyone else on earth. His spectacular flying arm bars will have a tough rope to climb against super koala Satoru Kitaoka. Lightweight champ Yoshiro Maeda has a resume that reads like a United Nations role call. “Dj.taiki’ comes at him for a third time in a best out of three match up for the shiny strap in what is sure to be a striker’s heaven. And in the final title contest Tribe Tokyo journeyman and Welterweight champ Yuya Shirai stays home to grind – or rather defend his belt against AKA’s well-rounded Dan Hornbuckle.

Masanori Kanehara steps back in the ring to cement his place at the top. Tatsumitsu Wada and Yusaku Nakamura drop weight to find out who can be the Flyweight title challenger. Takafumi Otsuka makes another run up the ladder against a tough-as-nails Makoto Kamaya. And Gono comes back!

Think of what you’d have sat through to really appreciate this card.  And think of the contributions all of these guys have made throughout their careers in furthering MMA.
