Not sure if this aired on TV anywhere but it was a big show because it marked Shooto's 20th Anniversary. And there were big upsets and some controversial moments. Quick results:
Takashi Nakakura def. Ganjo Tentsuku by decision to win the vacant Shooto World Welterweight (154 pound) title.
David Baron def. Hayato Sakurai by submission (Guillontine Choke) R1 (Holy s**t! This is Mach's first loss since losing to Gomi in '05)
Akitoshi Tamura def. Rumin Sato by submission (North-South Choke) at 2:37, R3
Savant Young def. Takeshi Inoue by Decision (Huge because Inoue is widely regarged as either the #1 or #2 Featherweight in the world)
Ryuich Miki vs. Yasuhiro Urushitani ended in a Draw (30-28, 28-28, 28-28)
Yusuke Endo def. Vince Ortiz by submission (Rear-Naked Choke) at 3:34, R1
