We're seeing more of the men's MMA companies in Japan adding women to their shows. Obviously they can see that DEEP is getting great results with very entertaining fights. GCM Demolition will have a womens match for the very first time on their Aug. 19 Differ Ariake show. GCM used to have a womens promotion Cross Section but it closed a couple of years ago. It will be Naoko Ohmuro (pictured in pink) vs Fukuko Hamada. Both are Smackgirl veterans. Ohmuro's record is 7-5-1 and her last fight was a loss to Mai on the May 19 Smackgirl show. She has lost to Hisae Watanabe & Satoko Shinashi twice each. Hamada is 4-0 and her last win was over Akemi Morihara at the Apr. 28 Smackgirl show.
Smackgirl has added two Next Cinderella Tournament finals to their Sept. 6 Korakuen Hall show. Maho Muranami & Madoka Ebihara will fight in the finals of the Flyweight tournament and V1 & Emi Tomimatsu will fight in the Lightweight tournament. Of course the main event has Yuka Tsuji defending her Smackgirl Lightweight Championship against Michele Tavares.
