Keita "K-Taro" Nakamura forced to return SHOOTO Pacific Rim Middleweight title

The first Shooto Pacific Rim Middleweight title holder, Keita "K-Taro" Nakamura, was forced to return his title to the SHOOTO commission without even having defended it once. The reason is K-Taro signed an exclusive contract with the UFC (probably a three fight deal, of which he has fought twice so far) which doesn't let him fight elsewhere.

As a SHOOTO title holder you have to defend the title at least once everyone 12 month, K-Taro won his title on July 21st in 2006 in Hawaii after defeating Ronald Jhun by submission.
