UFC president Dana White may have said their roster is too full, but that didn’t matter when it came to signing Japan’s Shunichi Shimizu.

There is no debut information for Shimizu, or what weight class he’s going to join.

At 28-8, the bantamweight’s signature was confirmed by MMA in Asia. He’s currently riding five wins and is a known finisher. Only five of his wins have needed the judges. He’s fought for promotions such as Zst, Rings and Pancrase.
