8/2 Sengoku 9 - Fight Order

Saturday 18 July 2009

While I have a feeling that FEG had problems getting their DREAM 10 card toghether, that is not the case for WVR and Sengoku. Though the card has 12 fights, only 8 of these are on the main-card. But there is so much happening here, and I hope they show the opening fights too.

On this card we will see Satoru Kitaoka defend his lightweight title against the under-rated Mizuto Hirota. Kitaoka's last loss fresh in my mind, I am thinking Mizuto has a chance at an upset here. Of course he needs to keep it standing.

There is also a GP final here, the Sengoku featherweight GP has delivered some very good fights so far and we will have the climax here. I am picking Sandro vs. Hioki in the final (no surprise there), but I think Sandro will take this.

Kazuo Misaki created negaitive publicity for this event by running away from a police officer trying to book him for talking on the phone while driving. While it is stupid, WVR deceided to top that by going out and punishing Misaki further. For those who have not lived in Japan, this might seem strange. But being arrested in Japan can mean losing your job, something to keep in mind... Either way, the fight was supposed to be a title fight eliminator, but Misaki wont get that shot if he wins. So in short, Misaki has nothing but his pride to fight for here.

This event will see the return of Akihiro Gono to Japan, and we will see the MMA debut of Blagoy Alexandre Ivanov, the man who defeated Fedor in Sambo. Will we see a MMA rematch??

There is lots to look forward to on this card!
