GRANDSLAM 2 – Way of the Cage: Masakatsu Ueda and Victor Henry Headline

The fight card for the GRANDSLAM 2 “Way of the Cage” event scheduled for February 8th has been announced.  Fresh off of his knockout victory over Hideo Tokoro, Victor Henry returns to GRANDSLAM to fight former Shooto World Champion and ONE FC fighter, Masakatsu Ueda (18-3-2).  Ueda will be making his return to the cage after his loss to Bibiano Fernandes at ONE FC 15 nine months ago.  Having won eight of his last ten, Ueda will look to get back in the win column against CSW fighter, Victor Henry (8-1).  Henry rebounded with two wins late in 2014 after he lost a split decision to Joe Murphy earlier in the year.

Other household names such as Yosuke Saruta and Masakazu Imanari, make appearances on the card.  Yosuke Saruta (9-5-2) faces undefeated BRAVE prospect, Hayato Suzuki (10-0-2).  Masakazu Imanari (28-14-2) battles ZST veteran Kenichi Ito (12-12-8) in a rematch from their DEEP 61 bout.  25-year-old prospect, Takahiro Ashida (13-3-2) faces off with Tribe Tokyo’s Tatsuya Ando (2-0).
