Emi Fujino vs Hyun Joo Baek added to Sept. 16 DEEP show

DEEP announced today that Emi Fujino vs Hyun Joo Baek has been added to DEEP 79 Impact Sept. 16 at Nagoya International Convention Center Event Hall. Of course Emi is a veteran. She's been around a long time. Her record is 19-10-1NC. I was just describing Angela Hill as a middle of the pack fighter. Emi is the same. If you look at her record, she's never beaten a top ranked fighter. She's lost to the cream of women's MMA but she's never beaten anyone like that. This particular fight is a joke. It screams for a regulating body to smack DEEP matchmaker Shigeru Saeki upside the head. There's too much of an experience difference to sanction this fight. God knows there are incompetent or corrupt athletic commissions here. So it's certainly not perfect. But there is no regulation in Japan to handle weasels like Saeki. Hyun Joo Baek is from Korea. First of all, this fight is at Strawweight and Hyun is an Atomweight. And she has only had one pro and one amateur fight. She lost both. Her pro debut was on last week's ROAD FC show. She lost to Yuri Shim by second round submission. I have the video courtesy of Lady Go. Both fighters are newcomers but Hyun looks lost. In round one, she has no answer for Shim's knees in the clinch. Hyun scores a knockdown at the start of round two. But then she gives up her back and it's over. She has no business being anywhere near someone as experienced as Emi Fujino. It's a pathetic mismatch. Check out the video and you'll see what I mean.
