Vale Tudo Japan (VTJ) doles out a few more cookies from the upcoming February 23rd card. VTJ 4th sees Hawaiian Kana Hyatt added to the Flyweight Tourney, and Takaya versus Uchimura.

DREAM Champ Hiroyuki Takaya finally makes his way back into a cage against ZST Champ Yojiro Uchimura. Teruto Ishihara picks up another strong opponent in Ulka. The Flyweight Tournament fleshes out a bit more with the addition of Kana Hyatt, but the remaining three fighters will be announced later. Sengoku also gets a little more front page space as SRC ring girl and idol “Regiiiiina” comes back on stage for VTJ 4th.
