Three fights are added to DEEP JEWELS 19.

The promotion announced this on Sunday.

Tomo Mezawa, who lost to SARAMI in the atomweight title qualifier, will be back in action and she is going to face Yuko Saito from Akatsuki Dojo.

This is going to be Saito’s second pro MMA fight but she is from International Budo University judo team and also the winner of last year’s All Japan Amateur Shooto Championships.

In her pro debut, Saito finished Mizuki Furuse via punches from the mount, and also, in December, she submitted Mika Nagano with a head arm triangle choke in the grappling bout.

If Saito beats Maezawa, she may end up getting a title shot in her third pro MMA fight.

The other two fights added are, strawweight bout between Midori Sugar and Ayaka “Ryo The SKY WALKER” Miyata, and a 50 kg & under catchweight bout between Pan “KAI” Hui and Mika “ARAMI” Arai.
