HEAT 29 took place on December 15, 2013 at Differ Ariake in Tokyo Japan. Prospects Mikihito Yamagami and Kenta Sakuma rack up wins, Sato and Kasugai also victorious.

Shooto Flyweight Champ Mikihito Yamagami, a top prospect who last defeated Caol Uno by decision at VTJ 2, face MMA dabbler Narongchai Dragontail, a Muay Thai coach and competitor of over 120 fights in Thailand, Rebels and WPMF sanctioned events. Yamagami also competes in kickboxing and was RISE tournament winner in 2007, so he has the goods to play the game standing. If Narongchai’s ground game has improved at all since his 2010 outing remains to be seen.

Post fight: Yamagami took the Thai down and hammered him until the ref jumped in halfway through the first.

Yoichiro Sato, on a four fight win streak, meets Fumitoshi Ishikawa, who went undefeated until his last fight, an unsuccessful run at Kiichi Kunimoto’s belt. Kunimoto has vacated due to contracting with the UFC, so this match looks to position the next contenders.

Post fight: Sato stays on top of the heap. He took Ishikawa down and beat on him through most of the fight to get the nod by all judges.


Shooto ranker Fumihiro Kitahara gets his first shot in a cage against a top prospect, Takeshi Kasugai, who is undefeated in 3 years.

Post fight: Kitahara stayed in the game but Kasugai continued his lucky streak in HEAT.

Makoto Kamaya, a DEEP golden boy who has fallen on hard times, moves over to HEAT to try his luck at snapping the streak against Shhoto’s up and comer Kenta Sakuma.

Post fight: Sakuma pressed the more experienced Kamaya, and while it wasn’t one-sided, Sakuma keeps climbing up the ladder by way of a split decision.

In a bit of a fluff match, comedian Oyaki tries his hand at MMA against BJJ master Rafael Teixeira.

Post fight: Surprisingly, it’s Oyaki with the win in an unflattering contest.
