VTJ 3rd is set for the Ota City Gymnasium in Tokyo on Oct. 3. It will be headlined by a bantamweight bout between the highly experienced Hideo Tokoro and UFC and WEC veteran Will Campuzano.
Tokoro (30-25-2) has been on every single VTJ card since the promotion returned last year and has won his last two fights. Campuzano (12-4) has not lost a fight since being released by the UFC in early 2010 after going 0-2 inside the Octagon.
Two more fights were announced by VTJ this week. In the featherweight division, Akiyo Nishiura (11-8-1) will be looking to snap a three-fight losing streak when he takes on Sengoku and Shooto veteran Shigeki Osawa (9-4-2-1).
Lightweights collide when seasoned veteran Naoyuki Kotani (31-10-7) – who has fought the likes of Roger Huerta, Dennis Siver and Koji Oishi – puts his 11-fight winning streak on the line against Daisuke Hoshino (8-6-1).
The event is also set to feature two Japanese MMA stalwarts that will be facing as yet unnamed opponents. Megumi Fujii (26-2) will be fighting for the final time and Caol Uno (28-16-5) will be looking to score his third consecutive win.
