The event takes place on Saturday at Shinjuku FACE in Tokyo, Japan.  The fight card kicks off at 18:00 local time (JST) headlined by a fight between Naohiro “Chokugeki Gamon” Mizuno and Keita Ishibashi.  Mizuno carries a three fight win streak into the fight.  He was the runner-up of the 2008 Shooto Rookie tournament, losing in the finals to former UFC fighter Issei Tamura.  Keita Ishibashi carries a four fight win streak into this main event, finishing every fight by submission.  The co-main event features an Infinity League 2014 fight between Hiroaki Fujita and Kazuhide Shirota.  Hiroaki Fujita is looking to get back to winning after an April loss to Takumi Ota that halted a three fight win streak.  The Infinity League is a round robin format tournament that was intended to change how B Class Shooto fighters competed.  The other Infinity League participants are Takumi Ota, Yutaka Saito and Toshiro Chihama.
