Weekly Regional Roundup: June 20-26

A look at the regional scene of MMA highlighting the bouts of well-known veterans and rising prospects fighting in promotions not named UFC, Bellator, or WSOF.

While the past week was an unusually slow one for any fighters of note, it did feature a more than usual amount of upset bouts, as well as changing of the guard fights that signal the waning days of yesterday's heroes.

Hantaru starched former Bellator & DREAM vet Carvalho in just 44 seconds at Shooto Brazil 48 for a huge upset in his first MMA win. Sort of controversial, check the video and see what you think. Bellator vet Foster edged former TUF guy Main in a not very close split (another judging pratfall with one scoring it 30-27 Main) at CFFC 36. MMA late-comer Mima put on a show against another former Bellator vet in Ledesma, at the same CFFC 36 show. But it was DEEP 67 that featured some torch passing as Motoya surprisingly subbed Maeda (who is now on a 5 fight winless streak, even after dropping to 125), and Ochi pounded leglock master Imanari after closing the latter's eye with some nasty ground strikes that led to the doctor stoppage. One bright spot was Nakamura winning his bout over old-timer Yamamiya, a guy who debuted in this game back in 1996...a true millennial warrior. I'd love to see K-Taro in one of the bigger orgs again.
