Hiroto Uesako channeled his inner-Pride FC to win the DEEP featherweight title on Saturday.
After tossing Koichi Ishizuka to the canvas, the 30-year-old cracked him with a blistering soccer kick for the KO 2:29 into Round 3 of their co-headlining clash for the vacant strap at DEEP Cage Impact 2017 in Tokyo.
Uesako has now won three straight by knockout for a professional slate of 12-6, while Ishizuka's second straight loss brings his record to 12-3-1.
