Match 3 – Alex Caceres versus Motonobu Tezuka
Tezuka took the fight on little over a week’s notice when fellow freshman Kang KyungHo suffered and injury in training. The Pancrase contender came out in exciting fashion both in his entrance with a half demon/half Ultraman mask, and when he came out of his corner looking for takedowns. He was able to get Caceres to the ground, but unable to finish, and as the fight progressed, Caceres became wise to his takedowns, escaping and landing some nice shots, and in the closing seconds attempting a side triangle. It was a very game match for both young fighters.
