For today's preview of Shoot the Shooto, I've decided to look at a particular matchup and that is Shootboxing #1 ranked Super Featherweight Hiroaki Suzuki going up against Shooto and DREAM vet, "Wicky" Akiyo Nishiura. It is fitting that Suzuki is going up against an MMA fighter at the event as he has fought 3 MMA fighters in the past 2 years, taking on Tenkei Oda, Mitsuhiro Ishida and Shigeki Osawa. Nishiura's lone kickboxing fight was against 2010 K-1 63kg GP champion Tetsuya Yamato at Dynamite!!! 2010. Nishiura should stand a better chance than his fellow MMA fighters as he is primarily a striker, whereas Ishida and Osawa are predominantly wrestlers.
