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.

 Megumi “Mega Megu” Fujii [Shooto] defeated “Windy” Tomomi Sunaba [Pancrase] by Submission (Armbar) at 3:24 of round one.

Fujii set an example for her Shooto team with a quick takedown and some solid ground and pound on her Pancrase foe. She used short strikes to pass Sunaba’s guard and methodically worked for the inevitable armbar finish in the first round. Fujii improves to 19-0-0 with the win.

I don't know about that. Megumi hasn't had the same sort of success in ADCC that she has in MMA, but I don't think that that bothers her too much. She seems to focus more on MMA and teaching.

does this also mean that she is alot smaller than hillary williams and that size DID come into play at ADCC?

 Tara has been fighting at 125 lately - but she has also been grappling at 121. I bet she could make a 120 catch weight for a super fight with Fuji. It would be all kinds of awesome.

 What is Megumi's age? Does she still train with Barnett at all? Thanks in advance.

Not exactly, but pretty close to what she told me in October. I guess we'll see after the Bellator tourney.

Tara won't return to 135lbs until she reaches #1 ranked at 125lbs at least that's what Tara said earlier this year.
