Rin Nakai (9-0) captured the inaugural Valkyrie open-weight title with a doctor stoppage win over Mizuho Sato in Tokyo on Sunday. The former gymnast battered Sato with knees from the clinch, causing a possible orbital fracture which forced the ringside physician to halt the action at the end of the first round. Nakai stated before the fight that, were she to win the title, she'd like to compete in the U.S. at 125 or 135 pounds. In the main event, featherweight champion Mei "V-Hajime" Yamaguchi retained her title by drawing with Kyoko Takabayashi after three rounds. Photo by Sportsnavi.

At Shooto Brazil 19 on Sunday, Hernani Perpetuo (blue gloves) took the vacant Shooto South America 167-pound title with a three-round unanimous decision win over "Junior Killer" Romario Silva. The fight was a rematch of an Aug. 6 bout which saw Silva win by technical submission when referee Mario Yamasaki waved off the fight due to an armbar. The show also hosted the opening two rounds of an eight-man 114-pound South American title tournament, where "Maicon" Willian Costa and Lincon de Sa each punched their tickets to the finals on Dec. 11. The winner of the tournament will likely head to Japan to challenge Shooto world champ Rambaa Somdet. Full results here. Photo by Eduardo Ferreira for Tatame.
