Mogi, Tamada win at June 26 Shooto show
There were two women's matches on the June 26 Shooto show at the Kitazawa Town Hall. They were at the bottom the card so it was difficult finding details but I have found them at the Shooto website. The second match was a Flyweight bout Yasuko Mogi and Ayumi Takeuchi making her MMA debut. Mogi lands a right hook and goes for a single leg takedown. Takeuchi tries to block it but Mogi is persistent and the takedown is successful. Mogi neutralizes Takeuchi's upper body and mounts her from behind. She continues to work on Takeuchi and hooks a sleeper for the win at 2:45 of round one. Mogi is now 4-3 and Takeuchi is 0-1.
