    They announced 2 fights so far for DEEP JEWELS 18.

    Some info on Kana Watanabe


    Some of the translation is a bit iffy since the person translating isn't a native English speaker but it should get across that she is an accomplished judoka.

    She's facing Hikari Sato, who won the Women's Flyweight division at the All Japan Amateur Shooto Championships last month.

    They signed another one of this year's All Japan champs in Hikaru Aono (some gifs of her a few posts ago in this thread). She won the Strawweight division but looks like she will be carrying on at Atomweight as a pro. Some info on her

    I was impressed by her strength in the All Japan tournament, she was completely overpowering her opponent in the grappling exchanges (her short and stocky build fits her style well). She also fought to a draw a few days before the tournament in her pro debut. Her only loss is to Madoka Okada who is a Smackgirl vet that has only lost to Emi Fujino. Not sure why Okada was allowed to fight as an amateur, even if she had taken a decade off prior. Aono trains at one of the Strapple branches with ZST vet Shooto Watanabe.

    I haven't found much on Anna Kiriyama yet but she trains out of a Zendokai branch which probably means she's from a karate background.

    Looks like a Japanese Sara McMann.

    Looks like MIO started training at AACC the other day


    She's RENA's bff so hopefully this means a future RIZIN debut, maybe NYE.

    Always good to see Sano. Some nice throws in a few of the fights.

    If the nipple wasn't seen, it's not an official boob slip.
