Pancrase 277 took place on 24 April the of Differ Ariake in Toyko, the second MMA event for the famed stadium in two straight days.

Interim featherweight title match was held between Issei Tamura from Krazy Bee and Juntaro Ushiku. Tamura won by very shocking and quick-solid punch to Ushiku’s face.

Former UFC fighter Tokudome had a fight with Akbarh Arreola from Mexico who was released from the UFC after UFC 193 in November. Tokudome proved too much and got the win at the end of the first round.
