Megumi "Mega Megu" Fujii To Face "Windy" Tomomi SunabaThe world’s top-ranked female fighter, Megumi “Mega Megu” Fujii, will return to action on November 23rd at Shooto: “Revolutionary Exchanges 3” at JCB Hall in Tokyo, Japan when she takes on veteran striker “Windy” Tomomi Sunaba in the lone women’s bout on the card.

A victory for Fujii could potentially set up a flyweight superfight against #3-ranked star Miku “Supernova” Matsumoto, who most recently defeated Sunaba at DEEP: “44th Impact” on October 10th and stated her intentions to challenge Fujii in the near future.

Fujii (18-0-0) is renowned as the top female fighter in the sport today and has dominated the lighter weight classes since her professional debut in 2004.

An incredible 15 of her victories have come by submission, including wins over Erica Montoya, Ana Michelle Tavares, Lisa Ward, Seo Hee Ham and, most recently, Saori Ishioka.

While the bout with Ishioka was one of Fujii’s most competitive fights since 2007, she submitted the rising star with an armbar late in the second round.


Sunaba (12-11-1) has competed against the best throughout her career, but she has met with mixed success and is 0-3-1 in her last four fights.

With losses against the likes of Yuka Tsuji (twice), Rosi Sexton and Miku Matsumoto, Sunaba rarely has an easy fight, but this will be her toughest to date.

Sunaba managed to take Matsumoto to a decision, but she seemed to be a step behind at all times in the fight and will have to be at her very best when she takes on Fujii.


Should Fujii get past Sunaba, it will pave the way for a showdown between her and Matsumoto at an upcoming event. Matsumoto (23-4-0) has won 12 straight fights and looks to be the lone threat to Fujii’s spot atop the division.

Shooto: “Revolutionary Exchanges 3” takes place on November 23rd at JCB Hall in Tokyo, Japan.
