Former PRIDE lightweight champion Takanori 'Fireball Kid' Gomi earn a 5-round unanimous decision victory over American Tony 'Lionheart' Hervey in the main event.
In the co-main event, current Shooto Lightweight Champion 'Lion' Takeshi Inoue TKO'd Alexandre Franca 'Pequeno' Nogueira in a non-title fight that went 4 rounds.
Brazilian Willamy 'Chiquerim' Freire captured the Shooto Welterweight Championship with a first round TKO over Kenichiro Togashi.
It was rumored that Vale Tudo Japan 2009 might feature the final fight of Shooto veteran Rumina 'Moon Wolf' Sato, who had lost 4 straight fights, and 6 out of his last 7, coming into this event. But Sato was able to score a first-round TKO victory over previously unbeaten Team Quest fighter Cory 'Savage' Grant. While this offers Sato the chance to retire with a win, it is more likely that we haven't seen the last of the legendary Japanese fighter in Shooto.
