3/20 Sengoku 7 - Featherweight GP Fights Announced

Wednesday 4 March 2009

Sengoku have announced the matchups for round 1 in their featherweight GP. A couple of fights stand out to me. Hatsu Hioki vs. Chris Manuel should be a very good fight, as will Omigawa vs. L. C. Davis and Kadowaki vs. Nam Phan.

My pick for most exciting fight here is Seiya Kawahara vs. Nick Denis, this wont go the distance.

As for a fighter that can expect a bit of a "culture" shock, Tetsuya Yamada will really have to step it up against Ronnie Mann. But you never know how that turns out and it will be exciting to see.

Personally, I think Marlon Sandro will be hard to beat here, but there are so many good fighters.

Also announced today was the addition of Leonardo Santos, he is a BJJ expert and will compete at Sengoku 8, which will take place on May 2.

Featherweight GP Round 1:
Hatsu Hioki 17-3-2 vs. 6-0-2 Chris Manuel
Michihiro Omigawa 4-7-1 vs. 13-1-0 L.C. Davis

Seiya Kawahara 6-1-0 vs. 6-0-0 Nick Denis
Tetsuya Yamada 3-0-0 vs. 16-1-1 Ronnie Mann Ushiwaka
