“Pezão” Close To Signing With SENGOKU! Blanco’s Opponent Announced
“Pezão” Close To Signing With SENGOKU
In a new article at Tatame it says that former EliteXC Heavyweight champion Antonio Silva is close to signing with SENGOKU. They have made an offer to him to participate in their January 4th event.
Do these recent Heavyweight offers indicate a tournament in 2009?
SENGOKU NO RAN 2009

Maximo Blanco’s opponent for Pancrase on December 7th has been announced. He will face his toughest opponent yet in Daisuke Hanazawa who ended a five fight losing streak in 2006. Hanazawa’s record since then is 7-1-2.
It seems like Ryo Kawamura will not participate in this card as previously announced. Has he maybe received a spot on SENGOKU’s January 4th event?
