Two Middleweight GP Fights Announced! PANCRASEism Vs. GRABAKA

WVR announced three fights for their SENGOKU V card on September 28th today. In two Middleweight GP fights Yuki Kondo will face Yuki Sasaki and Shooto champion Siyar Bahadurzada will take on Evangelista Cyborg. In a Lightweight fight Ryan Schultz returns quickly after his KO loss at the hands of Mizuto Hirota to take on Jorge Masvidal, who also has one loss in SENGOKU. I think the Kondo vs. Sasaki fight is the first time two Japanese have met in SENGOKU.

Update: The winner of the Schultz vs. Masvidal fight will get a spot in the reserve fight of the Lightweight GP Finals at SENGOKU VI (probably in early November).

Update #2: Ribeiro’s opponent is already decided, but as the contract hasn’t been signed yet, they couldn’t make an announcement today.

Update #3: The last two GP participants, who are American and South Korean, will be announced early next week along with the match-ups they are in. Don’t be surprised if the Korean is Min Suk Heo. I really hope it’s Eun Soo Lee instead though.

    Thanks. I think Yoon is still with DREAN, there were rumors that he would be in the reserve fight of the DREAM MW GP Finals. Even though Trigg won, I doubt he’ll be in the GP because he has already beat Misaki and he has a Strikeforce fight around that time.
