This was a major Shooto event from yesterday, quite a bit happened including 3 title fights and a major surprise:
Shintaro Ishiwatari beat Wataru Miki by majority decision.
Kotetsu Boku beat Yoshihiro Koyama by unanimous decision.
Eduardo Dantas beat Hiromasa Ogikubo by submission (rear naked choke) at 1:21 of round 3.
Masakatsu Ueda beat Akitoshi Tamura by unanimous decision.
Rumina Sato beat Ryota Matsune by KO at 21 seconds of round 3.
Yasuhiro Urushitani beat Ryuichi Miki by unanimous decision to win the vacant Shooto Bantamweight Championship.
Shooto Welterweight Champion Willamy Friere (Chequerim) beat Yusuke Endo by split decision to retain the title.
Hatsu Hioki beat Shooto Lightweight Champion "Lion" Takeshi Inoue by split decision to become THE NEW SHOOTO LIGHTWEIGHT CHAMPION!

The major surprise: The Shooto Welterweight TItle is now VACANT. Immediately after his defense, Friere returned the title. He said he's signed an exclusive contract with another organization that would prevent him from defending it. Also, it's possible that, depending on various circumstances, Urushitani could first defend against Shinichi Kojima, the former champion who will get a title shot when he returns from injury.
