For avid MMA enthusiasts, there was always a “mega” star on the female side of things before Gina Carano or Ronda Rousey ever garnered mainstream love. From 2004-2010, no woman dominated in the cage like Japanese grappler Megumi Fujii. Over the span she compiled a 22-0 record while winning with class and a trademark smile.
However, at age 39, Fujii apparently feels it’s time to hang up her gloves despite a 4-2 mark in her last six scraps. Fortunately, before she does, “Mega Megu” will treat fans to one more appearance in the ring after recently revealing she was set for October 5 action a Vale Tudo Japan event and would call it a career afterwards, win or lose.
No opponent was announced.
The 26-2 Fujii picked up three victories under the Bellator banner before falling to Zoila Gurgel in a title-fight. Nineteen of her instances of success were the result of a submission finish.
