The CJ Report posted the results Saturday from the lottery drawing held in Tokyo. With the order number they drew, the fighters could chose to seed themselves in the tournament as they saw fit.
In the end, here is the opening round of the tournament:
- Yukiko Seki vs. Tomo Maesawa
- Masako Yoshida va. Satomi Takano
- Ayaka Miura vs. “V.V.” Mei Yamaguchi
- Emi Tomimatsu vs. Mina Kurobe
A reserve bout between Miyoko Kusaka and Miki Araki (nee Pan Hui) will also take place.
The winners of the opening round will face off the in the semi-finals (and possibly finals) at DEEP-JEWELS 8.
In addition to the tournament, the promotion also announced an interesting tag team grappling bout.
InvictaFC atomweight title contender Ayaka Hamasaki will partner with Yuko Oya to take on WSOF vet Emi Fujino and her partner Sachiko Fujimori.
According to the CJ Report, the winner is the one team that reaches three submissions in a ten minute time frame.
Hamasaki had withdrew her name out of the 106 tournament, most likely because of a possible title shot with Herica Tiburcio at InvictaFC 12.
We will have complete results from DEEP-JEWELS 7 February 21.
