Shooto 3rd round took place last night in Japan, where Kyoji Horiguchi (pictured) defeated longtime Shootist and ADCC grappler, Tetsu Suzuki, by TKO two minutes into their fight. Also on the card, Yasuke Yachi defeated Shigeki Osawa (of Sengoku and Amateur wrestling fame) by decision. Former Champ, BJ Kojima, continued to be unimpressive as he dropped a decision to young Korean Nam Jin Jo. And Shinji Sasaki drew with Daisuke Hoshino.

Masakatsu Ueda submits Ralph Acosta with a brabo choke in the second round. Acosta stepped in as a late replacement for Farkhad Sharipov when Sharipov couldn't obtain a Visa. Ueda is a former SHOOTO champion at 132 pounds. Today's event, called Shooto - Shootor's Legacy 1, was the first major Japanese show of the new year.

At Shooto Brazil 19 on Sunday, Hernani Perpetuo (blue gloves) took the vacant Shooto South America 167-pound title with a three-round unanimous decision win over "Junior Killer" Romario Silva. The fight was a rematch of an Aug. 6 bout which saw Silva win by technical submission when referee Mario Yamasaki waved off the fight due to an armbar. The show also hosted the opening two rounds of an eight-man 114-pound South American title tournament, where "Maicon" Willian Costa and Lincon de Sa each punched their tickets to the finals on Dec. 11. The winner of the tournament will likely head to Japan to challenge Shooto world champ Rambaa Somdet. Full results here. Photo by Eduardo Ferreira for Tatame.

Darren Uyenoyama, seen above with the kids from Tokyo's Abe Ani Combat Club, upset Shooto 132-pound world champion Shuichiro Katsumura via second-round TKO on Thursday in their non-title bout at "The Way of Shooto 5." Uyenoyama will likely get a shot at Katsumura's title next, though no timeline was set for a rematch. In the evening's semi-main event, Junji "Sarumaru" Ito continued to solidify his reputation as one of Japan's top 115-pounders, spoiling the flyweight debut of Guam's Jesse Taitano with a TKO at 4:50 of round three.

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.
