Former UFC flyweight Naoki Inoue booked for DEEP 93 Impact

Naoki Inoue steps up for DEEP 93 Impact.

DEEP 93 Impact is set to go down on 15 December in what looks to be the final event of the year for DEEP.

The Japanese promotion has announced a slew of new match-ups, including former UFC flyweight Naoki Inoue.

Inoue (11-2), the younger brother of Mizuki Inoue, will face DEEP veteran Toshiaki Kitada (22-12-4) in a bantamweight clash.

Since leaving the UFC, Inoue appeared on the Cage Fury 72 card, but dropped a unanimous decision to Sean Santella.

Title contenders

Two titles will be on the line at DEEP 93 Impact, including the lightweight belt as Koji Takeda looks to defend against Juri Ohara. Openweight champ Roque Martinez will defend his belt against Seigo Mizuguchi.

One tasty matchup includes a light heavyweight scrap between Tatsuya Mizuno (22-12-1) and American Joshua Robison (8-6-2).

Since 2017 Mizuno has been on a tear, winning all seven of his fights. A win at the Ota Ward Gymnasium on 15 December will surely push him closer towards the title.
