Yusuke Yachi (矢地祐介) vs. Yuji Hoshino (星野勇二)
I wonder if Yachi's guard holds up. He needs the purse money to buy some new shoes, to get a $100 haircut.
The upstart, who is 22 years old, faces longtime veteran, former Cage Force standout, Yuji Hoshino. Yachi's instincts are impressive for being so young, but I felt some of his recent fights could have gone the other way, especially against Miki, who dragged him around as though he weighed 50lbs.
Hoshino is a great name to have on your record, although he hasn't fought very often in the last few years.Still, his record speaks for itself.
Manabu is still searching for a Shooto victory after coming up short twice, both of which were split decisions.
