Octagon girl Azusa Nishigaki

The lone Facebook bout will showcase Chinese standout Tiequan Zhang (15-2) vs. Issei Tamura (6-2). Tamura is replacing Leonard Garcia, who was originally paired with Zhang but forced to withdraw with an injury  (Nam Phan was also mention to replace Garcia)  He’s been a staple in Shooto and won the longstanding feeder promotion’s 2008 “Rookie Tournament.” Tamura started off with a flawless record after five outings but has since dropped two of his last three; his best wins are over Australian bantamweight Gustavo Falciroli (9-3) and scrappy Japanese journeyman Katsuya Toida. Tamura reps Kid Yamamoto’s Krazy Bee fight team and all but one of his six victories have come via decision.
