Shooto: "Revolutionary Exchanges 3" ResultsCapped off by an excellent Shooto Flyweight Championship bout between new champion Rambaa “M-16″ Somdet and Toboru “Shinpei” Tahara, Shooto: “Revolutionary Exchanges 3″ was another solid event this evening at JCB Hall in Tokyo, Japan.
Also on the card, Kotetsu Boku picked up an incredible comeback victory when he rebounded from a shaky start with a one-punch knockout of Yukio Sakaguchi, while Megumi “Mega Megu” Fujii took her record to 19-0-0 with a first-round submission of “Windy” Tomomi Sunaba.
In the night’s main event, Rambaa “M-16″ Somdet defeated Noboru “Shinpei” Tahara by Unanimous Decision (30-26, 30-26, 30-27) after three rounds to become the new Shooto Flyweight (115-Pound) Champion.
The pair had met once before at Shooto: “Tradition 3″ in September of 2008, where Somdet won a Unanimous Decision. He repeated the feat tonight by countering Tahara’s early takedowns with submission attempts from his back before returning to his feet. He racked up points with a series of quick punching combinations and vicious kicks to the legs, head and body of Tahara en route to a dominant decision win.
Somdet improves to 7-2-0 with the win and becomes the first Shooto Flyweight Champion.
