Punishment in Paradise returned with Shooto sanctioning and a mix of kickboxing on this very well matched card. Local favorite Ron "The Machine Gun" Jhun returned to action and fought for a chance to become the Shooto Middleweight Pac Rim Champion. Unfortunately, the long and very technical K-Taro Nakamura had other plans. As expected Jhun tagged Nakamura standing for short time and Nakamura closed in for the clinch eventually taking Jhun to the mat. The skilled Nakamura slipped to Jhun’s back and held it there for most of the round attacking mostly with rear naked choke attacks and throwing in a punch or two. Jhun took a chance to push for an escape which allowed Nakamura the space he needed to slap in a text book mata leao and Jhun tapped. In the co-main event, another Japanese fighter, Usui, stepped up to face the Icon Sport and X-1 champ, Ed Newalu of the 808 Fight Factory. Newalu was clearly the wrestler, while Usui was a skilled judo practitioner and they traded pummeling standing up. Usui took down Newalu in the first round and had excellent positioning on the ground which won him the first round. In round two Usui followed up and got to Newalu’s back early, but Newalu was able to scramble out, took the top and eventually get to Usui’s back. Newalu kept Usui’s back for most of the round which won him round 2 and kept the fight a draw. This fight left the crowd drooling for a third round to see which fighter could impose their game. The kickboxing fights were very competitive and well matched. The knock out of the night had to have come from Kaleo Kwon as he fought up a weight class and Wayne Perrin dropped some pounds to come down to meet Kwon there. Both fighters were measuring themselves and Kwon stepped in and landed a earth shattering left hook that sent the larger fighter to the canvas and scored him a knock out at 1:14 seconds in round 1. The remaining fights were a mixture of class B shooto bouts and kickboxing which kept the fans entertained during the very long evening.
