Deep Exports Talent to China for "Mayhem in Macau"

Long time mixed martial arts promotion Deep will leave Japanese shores for the first time on January 8 for its next installment, "Mayhem in Macau." The event will be held in Macau, China where Deep titleholder Yusuke Kawaguchi will defend his Deep Megaton (super heavyweight) title against 6-1 judoka Kazuhisa Tazawa. Meanwhile bantamweight and welterweight champions Tazawa Masakazu Imanari and Yuya Shirai also join the card in non-title bouts. As China becomes the next frontier for mixed martial arts promotions, particularly the UFC which has launched an intense project in China, Deep's arrival there could be a boost for a grim Japanese MMA scene. Complete "Mayhem in Macau" fight card follows.
