Laughter7 product Takenori Sato became the sixth welterweight King of Pancrase with a submission victory over Kengo Ura at Pancrase Impressive Tour 1 on Sunday. Also on the card, Yuki Kondo dropped a unanimous decision to the sub-.500 Hiroki Nagaoka. Akihito Tanaka, the decorated Japanese wrestler who got himself in the worst of freakshows against Bob Sapp at Dynamite!! 2008, had a successful return to MMA, defeating Yuhei Fukuda via unanimous decision. Also making a successful return was Seiya Kawahara, who was on a three fight win streak when injuries sidelined him just about a year ago. Kawahara knocked out Takumi Murata three minutes into the second round of their bantamweight contest.

After the win, the former Sengoku champ announced his retirement from Pancrase and defection from his longtime gym, PANCRASEism.

Elsewhere on the card, freestyle wrestling convert and Sengoku featherweight prospect Shigeki Osawa improved to 6-1 with a first-round TKO'ing of Masaomi Saito. Photo by GBRing.

Former flyweight King of Pancrase Mitsuhisa Sunabe (13-6-3) knocked out Shooto import Noboru "Shinpei" Tahara (9-5-1) with a vicious slam in the third round of their bout in Tokyo on Sunday. With the win, Sunabe earned a rematch against the man who took his title, current champion Kiyotaka Shimizu. In other action, Manabu Inoue (10-5-1) took a unanimous decision over Tashiro "Akai" Nishiuchi (14-7-10), defending his bantamweight title and running his current win streak to four. Inoue will next enter the quarterfinals of Sengoku's 2010 Asia Bantamweight Tournament. The main event saw light-heavyweight champ Ryo Kawamura (12-6-2) upset by journeyman Yuji Sakuragi (12-16-1, 1 NC) in a non-title affair. Sakuragi blitzed the slow-starting Kawamura from the opening bell and knocked him out with a barrage of punches just four minutes in to the match. Full results at Sherdog; photo by GBRing.

Former flyweight King of Pancrase Mitsuhisa Sunabe (12-6-3; pictured at right) will square off against Shooto's Noboru "Shinpei" Tahara (9-4-1) in Pancrase on September 5th, the promotion announced today during an online broadcast. The scheduled three-rounder marks the first significant interpromotional bout between Shooto and Pancrase since they ended a seven year period of non-cooperation in the Shooto ring last fall. (Read more about the feud between the two organizations in this SKILL MMA post.) Sunabe is 4-1 since moving to flyweight in 2008, but was on the wrong end of a majority decision in February and lost his title to current champ Kiyotaka Shimizu. "Shinpei" recently moved back to 123 pounds and has notched two straight wins following his November loss to Rambaa Somdet.
