Mayhem in Manhattan: KASAI 3 Results

The much anticipated KASAI Pro returned this past weekend in its third installment which took place in the Empire State. The event featured 10 undercard matches at various weight classes and a main card that featured some of the world’s top 170 lb grapplers in an eight-man tournament all fighting for the distinction of being crowned as the promotion’s first ever 170 lb champion. The event also featured 3 super fights, with one of the most anticipated not being so “super”. But that didn’t take away from the excitement of the other matches that took center stage. Here’s a quick list of all the results. You can check out the full matches on
