DEEP: Tribe Tokyo Fight on iPPV

Shigeru Saeki has today announced that DEEP: Tribe Tokyo Fight will be available to purchase on uStream for $15.

The card takes place this Sunday at 5am ET.

In the main event we’ll see Dan Hornbuckle defend his DEEP Welterweight title for the first time since winning it back in April at DEEP 62nd Impact.

His opponent will be none other than former DEEP Middleweight Champion Ryo Chonan, who also retires at the event. After twelve long years in the sport Ryo has finally decided to call it quits. The 37-year-old will look to get revenge for teammate Yuya Shirai who Hornbuckle defeated to win the belt.

Former Featherweight King of Pancrase Yoshiro Maeda will feature as the co-main. The Japanese fighter is on a 2-fight losing streak, most recently losing his Bantamweight title to Daiki Hata in a rubber match. This will be his first fight at 125lbs.

Mamoru Yamaguchi will welcome him to the division. The man with the fro is currently on a bit of a skid having lost his last three outings, so this is a must win fight for the former top 10 fighter.

Fresh off his win over Rey Docyogen at ONE FC, Yasuhiro Urushitani will look to build on that in hopes of getting another shot in the UFC.

Looking to get back on track Matheus Nicolau tries to make a name for himself by defeating the former Shooto Bantamweight Champion. This will be the Brazilians first fight this year since previously losing to the infamous Pedro Nobre in 2012.

Current Welterweight King of Pancrase Takenori Sato looks to extend his winning streak to eight. Most recently he was involved in a thrilling encounter with Shingo Suzuki at PANCRASE 247, Sato won the fight by Submission (Keylock) in the 3rd round to retain his title.

Ismael de Jesus will be the man trying to snap Takenori’s win streak. The 33-year-old holds a record of 9-4-1, and trains out of famed Brazilian gym Nova União.
