Welcome to Frank Pozen's Big Bad Blog. A lot of folks have been asking me to update them about my recovery. So I thought I would start a blog primarily to do that but also to talk about other topics of interest including the wrestling business and whatever else I can think of. I plan to update this on a regular basis so check back and leave a comment if you wish.

Satoko Shinashi is pregnant
DEEP held a press conference today with the intention of announcing the opponent for DEEP Women's Flyweight Champ Satoko Shinashi on DEEP 40 Feb. 20 at Korakuen Hall. But Shinashi wasn't at the press conference and DEEP matchmaker Shigeru Saeki announced that Shinashi is four months pregnant. Shinashi has been married since Nov. 2007. Saeki said that she is scheduled to give birth in July and is tentatively scheduled to return to MMA in December after maternity leave. Saeki also said that the title will be inactive until Shinashi returns. He emphasized that Shinashi is not retiring but he also doesn't think there are any suitable fighters worthy to be Flyweight champ. They have been having problems finding opponents for her. Congratulations to Satoko Shinashi and we all hope for a happy and healthy baby.
