In addition to the announcement today of the founding of the World Victory Road promotion in Japan, also announced was the creation of the Japan Mixed Martial Arts Federation (JMM), a sanctioning body for MMA in Japan. Tomiaki Fukuda was named President of JMM, Tadao Yasuda VP, and Naoya Kinoshita the CEO of World Victory Road.


No fighters named as of yet for the promotion, but they promised a first show announcement soon and they said a TV deal's in the works, so it sounds like Victory Road is off to a good start. The sanctioning body is another positive that should benefit every MMA promotion in Japan.

I remember that being mentioned in a similar item I posted here a couple days back, they felt strongly that they'd be able to lure Gomi in, which would give them instant credibility and a nice fanbase in Japan.
