SENGOKU Training Player Blanco To Make MMA Debut!

One of the two current SENGOKU training players, Maximo Blanco, will make his MMA debut on August 27th in Pancrase against Yuki Yashima in a 2×5 minute Lightweight division fight.

If you are wondering what a SENGOKU training player is, this is from an older post:

In addition, two amateur wrestlers were announced as SENGOKU “training players” today. They are promising wrestlers Shigeki Osawa (60 kg) from Japan (from the same wrestling academy as KID) and Maximo Blanco (74 kg) from Venezuela (who trains in Japan). SENGOKU will support them with money, fights in smaller events, training environment, and practice overseas so that they can participate in SENGOKU in the future.

“Genius” Osawa recently arrived home to Japan from Greece where he won gold in the 8th World University Wrestling Championship. Blanco has already started some MMA training at Yoshida Dojo. SENGOKU wants more “training players” in the future, so this isn’t only for these two.
