SENGOKU II! WVR Announces The First Names

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Four names have been announced for SENGOKU II on May 18th. They are Roger Gracie, Satoru Kitaoka, Yoshihiro Nakao and UFC veteran Yuki Sasaki.

Kitaoka has fought mostly in Pancrase throughout his career and was on a great five fight winning streak where he defeated fighters such as Paul Daley and Fabricio Monteiro, but, in January his streak ended as he lost to Katsuya Inoue by split decision for the vacant King Of Pancrase Welterweight title.

Yoshihiro Nakao was one of the rumored opponents for Mirko Cro Cop on March 15th, but that didn’t happen and he will now fight in SENGOKU. He last fought at Pride’s final event in April of 2007 where he submitted Edson Drago.

Yuki Sasaki has fought in most big promotions around the world. You might remember him best for his good effort against Dean Lister at UFC Fight Night 6 in 2006. He was supposed to fight in a 4-man Strikeforce tournament last year but was pulled out of it because he didn’t get medically cleared by the CSAC.

Date: May 18th, 2008
