Pequeno To SENGOKU! “The Giant” Speaks

Alexandre Pequeno has revealed to Graciemag that he will return to SENGOKU, probably on August 2nd, from his suspension. He was rumored to participate in the SENGOKU Featherweight GP before it started but it never happened (probably since he wanted to sit out his suspension first). Could he be part of the GP reserve fight at SENGOKU IX?

Satoru Kitaoka vs. TBA

    Trigg is going back to 170, so he’s out.

    King Mo told me he’d be on this card, so pencil him in. Pequeno will most likely fight Chan-Sung Jung.

    thanks, from the sengoku 9 commercial it looks like it will be kaz nak and misaki.

    Mo told me he’s either going to be fighting Nedkov or Xande, so I would assume it’d be Nedkov. He’s not sure when it will be officially offered; he says WVR is being weird about his opponent. He requested Xande twice and was rejected twice by Xande’s camp.
