11/1 Sengoku - Fights added (Middleweight Semi's Announced)

Tuesday 14 October 2008

Sengoku have confirmed the Middleweight matchups today. Not a huge surprise that the 2 Japanese fighters will face off in the semi-final, but this is going to be an interesting event. The lightweight semi's were already announced, but this is a very good card.

In addition to the Light- and Middleweight GP finals, we will have a Lightweight Tournament Reserve fight between Bang Seung Hwan, who was just stripped of his DEEP belt and Jorge Masvidal.

King Mo is confirmed as a participant, Josh Barnett has said earlier that he would be on this card and there should also be a middleweight reserve fight. Joe Doerksen is reported to be heading to Japan, and he should be facing Pancrase veteran Izuru Takeuchi in the Middleweight GP Reserve fight. I saw Joe Doerksen in his last fight in Japan, an easy win in DEEP 29 and look forward to seeing him again. Takeuchi is on a 5 fight winning streak and it should be a good fight.

Anyway, this looks like a strong card and I am really looking forward to this event! This event will also have the final in BOTH the GPs.

Middleweight Semi-Finals:
Yuki Sasaki 22-14-1 vs. 12-8-0 Kazuhiro Nakamura
