3/20 Sengoku 7 - 3 Featherweights Added to GP

Thursday 12 February 2009

Sengoku is continuing to pick up very talented (and young) fighters for their featherweight GP. Added today are Pancrase talent Seiya Kawahara, UFC and Pride veteran Michihiro Omigawa and Shooto talent Shintaro Ishiwatari.

I see a clear trend that Sengoku is signing up talents rather than very experienced fighters. This will be a very interesting GP. Seiya Kawahara has been awesome in his Pancrase fights, and only lost when he fought Manabu Inoue for the title in December last year. I would question if he is not too small for this weight though, he normally fights at bantamweight.

The veteran Michihiro Omigawa and the talented Shintaro Ishiwatari fought a fight in Shooto last month. It was a qualifying fight for this GP, and ended in a draw. Sengoku have deceided to give them both a spot.

Shintaro Ishiwatari 6-1-3
Seiya Kawahara 6-1-0
Michihiro Omigawa 4-7-1

Masanori Kanehara 11-5-5

Ryo Kawamura 9-3-2 vs. 3-0-0 Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal
