ZST will crown its first ever flyweight champion at on Nov. 23, when Ryosuke Tanuma and Yuichiro Yajima square off at ZST 26, the promotion's eighth anniversary event. The two fighters have met before, under ZST's "SWAT!" banner in August 2008; Tanuma won that fight with a 60-second kimura submission.

Jussier "Formiga" da Silva (7-0), widely considered the top 125-pound fighter in MMA, has signed a four-fight deal with the California-based Tachi Palace Fights promotion. Sherdog's Jordan Breen first broke the news on Thursday afternoon. Needless to say, this is great news both for Tachi Palace -- which has long promoted the sub-155 weight classes, dating back to its previous incarnation as World Extreme Cagefighting -- and the Brazilian, who resorted to soliciting donations from fans on the internet in order to cover travel fees for his last match. While Formiga's first bout for TPF has yet to be determined, Breen reports that Alexis Vila (8-0) and Danny Martinez (13-3) are in the running. Photo by Guilherme Cruz for Tatame.

After a run in DREAM's Featherweight Grand Prix, Abel Cullum (14-3) returns to the States on August 1st to defend his King of the Cage flyweight title against Richard Montano (9-7-1). In 2005, Cullum (in only his second pro bout) dropped a unanimous decision to Montano at a Desert Extreme show in New Mexico back in 2005. Cullum then reeled off 11 straight wins before losing to Wilson Reis in a five-round EliteXC bantamweight championship affair. poster via King of the Cage
