The women take center stage in this week’s installment of HDNet Fights Video Vault.

In our fight-of-the-week feature, we head to 2010’s year-end “Sengoku: Soul of Fight” event at Ariake Coliseum in Tokyo.

There, undefeated stongwoman and highly ranked Rin Nakai took on veteran journeywoman Mika Harigai in an open-weight bout.

Each week HDNet and MMAjunkie.com release a new and exclusive fight from the ever-growing HDNet Fights video library. Stunning knockouts, slick submissions, shocking finishes and legendary brawls are the norm for this weekly feature.

Nakai vs. Harigai is no exception.

Nakai (9-0 at the time), a five-year pro who’s ranked among the world’s top-five female 145-pounders, looked for her 10th straight win when she took on Harigai (6-23-1), a SmackGirl vet looking to snap out of a five-fight losing skid.

The imposing Nakai was the obvious favorite, but could Harigai pull off a New Year’s Eve miracle?

Check out the embedded clip for the answer.
