Somdet vs. Tahara II in November for First Shooto Flyweight Title

Shooto has confirmed the first bout for its November 23rd "Revolutionary Exchanges 3" show, which should turn out to be a big one, as Sustain has again booked the 3,100-seat JCB Hall.

#1- and #2-ranked 114-pounders Noboru "Shinpei" Tahara (7-3-1) and Rambaa "M-16" Somdet (6-2) will meet again, this time with the vacant Shooto Flyweight Championship on the line. The pair's first match from last September (above) ended with "M-16" taking a unanimous decision. Tahara has since moved ahead in the rankings thanks to wins over Shinya Murofushi and bantamweight Jesse Taitano, while Somdet has been inactive for all of 2009.
