After previously announcing #3 Unified ranked Naho Sugiyama versus Seo Hee Ham for the 106 pound title last month and #8 ranked Mei Yamaguchi faces Seo Ye Jung last week, JEWELS MMA Japan released it’s full card for their 24th outing, which will take place this weekend in Tokyo.
Added to the MMA portion of the card is Mika Nagano taking on Takumi Umehara and ex-patriot Jade Marie Anderson taking on Yurika Nakakura.
Nagano (12-8) is looking for her third straight win, as she got the decision win over Emi Tomimatsu this past March. With a victory, Nagano solidifies her spot for a title shot against 114 pound champ Ayaka Haasaki.
Umehara (1-0) made her pro debut this past March with a decision win over Yasuko Mogi. An upset would put her in the title picture.
Anderson (2-0) has back to back victories over journeywoman fighter Megumi Yabushita, getting a decsion win in their first encounter and an armbar submission in the second. Anderson trains out of Korea, and is looking for another win to climb the featherweight ladder.
Nakakura (1-1) is coming off a submission victory over Rie Fukui and looks to make a name for herself in the 145 weight class.
The card will also have a kickboxing match between Satomi Takano and Kaoru Chatani, plus four grappling bouts.
