Joshi News: Nagano Makes Successful MMA Return
The popular all-girl MMA promotion Jewels returned today with a doubleheader at Shin-Kiba 1st Ring, and for joshi fans and Stardom fans the big news was the return to MMA of our “Future Princess”, Mika Nagano, looking to bounce back from a disappointing split decision loss to Seo Hee Ham in December. Happily for us she was able to do what she does best today-tie people in knots, as she beat Emi Murata by quick submission-armbar of course. The only thing I’m not sure about is the time-SportsNavi reports the finish came at 1:40 of round 1, while Sherdog (I used them to help translate names) says 1:14. Either way, a win’s a win and I’m happy that Mika got another one. Her career MMA record now stands at 8-4. No word yet on when her next fight will be or when she’ll return to Stardom, but hopefully it’ll be soon.
