Shooto is gearing up for the final event of its Tradition series, which celebrates the venerable Japanese promotion's 20-year history. It seems that they are pulling out all the stops.

Announced for the May 10 event at JCB Hall is former Pride and Shooto champion Takanori Gomi, according to Japan-MMA.com. He returns to Shooto for the first time in nearly six years to face current Shooto 154-pound champion Takashi Nakakura.

Koutetsu Boku will make his second start of the year for Shooto when he faces Yutaka Ueda and Top-10 featherweight "Lion" Takeshi Inoue takes on the legendary Rumina Sato in another bout.
