Tatsumitsu Wada secured a win over Wang Shuo by way of unanimous decision at ONE: Only The Brave. This flyweight fight took place on January 28th at Singapore Indoor Stadium.
The Sweeper now has back-to-back mixed martial arts victories in a career that covers close to 40 MMA fights as of this writing.
The former DEEP flyweight champion has been plying his trade under the ONE Championship banner for a few years now. Since Wada made his promotional debut in July 2018.
Tatsumitsu Wada began his career losing his first handful of fights but has since turned things around in a pronounced way. He is approaching his 14th anniversary as a pro fighter and the former Rizin veteran is showing no signs of slowing down as he kicks off 2022 in a big way.
Tatsumitsu Wada has tested skills against fighters like Kai Kara-France, Reece McLaren, Danny Kingad, and Demetrious Johnson to name a few.
I spoke with Wada after his ONE: Only The Brave win at the post-event virtual media day. Excerpts from our recent interaction, with the aid of an interpreter, can be found below.
If there is a particular amount of fights and an ideal strength of schedule this year for Tatsumitsu Wada
“I don’t really have a plan for this year. But now that the ONE show is happening occasionally, right now I just thought maybe I can do at least three bouts this year. That would be great.”
How satisfying Wada’s post-fight victory meal with Hayato was
“Oh, it was delicious. Ideally, I really wanted to go outside and have a nice meal in Singapore. But right now it’s a pandemic. So I decided to just have a meal inside the hotel and celebrate my win.”
