Shooto's last 20th Anniversary event - one of the best shows of the year which nobody will get to see - kicks off in Tokyo in just a few hours. Here are results from yesterday's weigh-ins via Sportsnavi; undercard fighter Bo Kyung Sol was listed as "absent."

"Lion" Takeshi Inoue (65kg) vs. Rumina Sato (65kg)
Takanori Gomi (69.9kg) vs. Takashi Nakakura (70kg)
Yusuke Endo (69.9kg) vs. Willamy Chiquerim (70kg)
Mitsuhiro Ishida (69.9kg) vs. Mizuto Hirota (70kg)
Kenichiro Togashi (69.7kg) vs. Tetsuji Kato (69.8kg)
Kotetsu Boku (70kg) vs. Yutaka Ueda (69.9kg)
"Wicky" Akiyo Nishiura (65kg) vs. Takumi Ota (64.8kg)
Megumi Fujii (52kg) vs. Choi Em Bun (51.8kg)
Bo Kyung Sol (n/a) vs. Takesuke Kume (77.6kg)

The returning "Fireball Kid" told reporters at the weigh-ins that he feels good and "tomorrow will be a good day," while his opponent Nakakura said he would relinquish his welterweight title if he lost to Gomi, even though it is officially a non-title fight.

To ease the pain of not being able to watch this stacked card, check out Jordan Breen's excellent two-parter "A Blood Called Shooto" (Part 1 & Part 2) over at Sherdog.
