4/5 Pancrase Changing Tour 2 - Fights Added

Monday 16 February 2009

Pancrase have added 3 fights and announced the matchups for their 2nd event of the Changing tour.

Pancrase ranked #2 middleweight Ichiro Kanai will take on the experienced Takenori Sato. This is a good oppurtunito for Sato to climb into the Pancrase rankings, and he is on a 2 fight winning streak as well.

Lightweight ranked #3, Yuichi Ikari, will take on Hiroki Aoki. Aoki had a very tough start to his pro MMA career, facing Steve Magdaleno in his debut then Maximo Blanco in his second fight. He won his last fight, even though is was by a very tight decision and he will also be looking to get into the Pancrase rankings with a win here.

Added to the main-card:
Middle: Ichiro Kanai 9-9-3 /同級2位) vs. 7-5-4 Takenori Sato
Light: Yuichi Ikari 10-5-3 同級3位) vs. 1-2-0 Hiroki "AB" Aoki
