    The Smackgirl Executive Committee held a press conference today in Gold’s Gym South Tokyo where it was announced that the scheduled 11/29 bout between Wajyutsu Keisyukai Tokyo’s Naoko Ohmuro and Masako Yoshida of Native Spirt, would take place under full mma rules. This specifically entails no time limit for grappling and the allowance of punching to the face on the ground, as Smackgirl rules prohibit punches to the face and only allow for thirty seconds on the ground.

    The introduction of the new rule was explained by Smackgirl President Nagao: “I’d like to expand the number of fighters who can compete under these rules, so far only Yuka Tsuji and Megumii Fujii have experience in them. We’d like to get the OK of more of the top fighters.”

    Nagao further explained the reasoning behind the move: “We’ve recevied much fan mail and have listened to what they’ve had to say, so we’re considering moving towards full rules with this bout as well as others which will occur next year.” On the question of when full MMA rules would become the formal rule, Nagao said “we are still considering it.”

    Ohmuro, who has expirience with full MMA rules, had to say about the bout, “It’s a completely different game with punching to the face, but I was glad when I heard the rules announced. I’m use to practicing these rules with men so it’s nothing special.

    I’m suspicious of what Yoshida’s guard game will look like with Ohmuro’s stocky ass arms dropping ones on her.

    That’s great! Too bad they won’t do full MMA rules for Lisa’s fight, though.
