Satoko Shinashi Submits Hee Da Choi At Deep: 73 Impact
Reigning Deep Women’s Flyweight Champion “Princess” Satoko Shinashi earned her sixth straight stoppage win on Saturday night at Deep: “73 Impact” in Tokyo, Japan. The diminutive grappler submitted South Korean pro debutant Hee Da Choi in a back-and-forth 44kg matchup on the card.
Shinashi has drawn criticism for taking on inexperienced opponents since returning to the ring this past October following a six-year retirement. Her bout with Choi was more competitive than many had predicted, but Shinashi secured a fight-ending rear-naked choke midway through the second round.

Rafael Nunes says injury, illness takes him out of ONE Championship 27 vs. Eddie Ng
Rafael Nunes was anxious to get back to work since sitting on the sidelines since this past July. But now he’ll have to wait a little longer.
Nunes (10-1) was set to face Eddie Ng (7-2) later this month at ONE Championship 27. Instead, an injury and illness has knocked him out of the fight, he told MMAjunkie.
Nunes said a clavicle injury happened first, but it wouldn’t necessarily have kept him from the lightweight bout. But then the Brazilian came down with dengue fever, he said – a mosquito-borne virus.
