Pancrase 321 May 30, 2021

Featherweight King of Pancrase Championship – 5R/5M
ISAO Kobayashi (NEVER QUIT, 26-5-0)
Current (8th Generation) Featherweight King of Pancrase Champion vs. Taichi Nakajima (LOUTUS Setagaya, 15-11-1) #1

Pancrase returns with its first number series card of 2021. PANCRASE 321 sees ISAO Kobayashi defend his Featherweight crown for the third time since unifying the title against Nazareno Malagarie at PANCRASE 305. Following a successful title defense against Kyle Aguon at PANCRASE 309, ISAO faces challenger, Taichi Nakajima, next. Nakajima fought his way to the number one contender spot with a hard-earned win over UFC veteran, Yoshinori Horie at PANCRASE 318.


ISAO is known as one of the most complete mixed martial artists in Japan and at the international level. He is a multiple-time King of Pancrase Champion with an all-round game that few fighters find holes in. Nakajima’s incredible stamina allows him to push the championship-level pace with constant forward pressure and aggression. The number one KOP Featherweight contender pushes for scrambles to exploit his opponents.
