Vale Tudo Japan the 6th takes place on October 4, 2014 in Tokyo, Japan. At a press conference today, the first bouts on the card were announced.

 

Shooto Champ, PRIDE vet, badass, and one of MMA’s most notable philanthropists Enson Inoue will finally receive a retirement ceremony from a Japan organization.

DREAM Featherweight Champion Hiroyuki Takaya will take on the next Krazy Bee prodigy Ryogo Takahashi in a hopeful slugfest.

Pancrase King ISAO faces former Shooto King Lion Takeshi.

The Flyweight tournament will come to a close as finalists Czar Sklavos and Hiromasa Ogikubo face off. Sklavos ground out a UD from Ryuichi Miki and Ogikubo choked out Kana Hyatt to put them in the final bracket.

Caol Uno will participate, and though his opponent was not announced, he wishes for a foreign one, as he’s still trying to get another shot at the UFC.

Based on the development of the D-Net organization, Ryo Chonan will be spearheading two 8-man grappling tournaments in two divisions (-61.2 and -70.8) on the day of the event to start at 10:00 am. It is called “Grappler Crown” and entrance requirements will be announced later.
