Yabushita was one of 2 Judoka recruited by Jaguar Yokota for Jd. She and Sumie Sakai had a shortlived tag unit (YABUSAKA) and they were pretty nifty due to their extensive Judo backgrounds. For the last few years she has been doing MMA, even being in the middle of controversy during a fight with Erin Toughill.
She has been doing pro-wrestling alot more these last 12 months, mostly working for JWP. I hope she getsa bigger push there because I wouldn't mind seeing her face Hyuga or Haruyama for he JWP Openweight. Her respect feud with Bolshoi has been aces.
