SENGOKU FW GP Semifinals Official! Kitaoka Vs. Hirota Announced

As expected, the announced fights of today’s announcement were the GP pairings, a Lightweight title fight between Satoru Kitaoka and Mizuto Hirota, and a fight between Kazuo Misaki and Kazuhiro Nakamura to decide the first title challenger for Jorge Santiago.

Update: The four Bantamweight fighters of the SENGOKU Gold Rush Project will be introduced on Sunday on the SENGOKUG! program.

Update #2: SENGOKU X will take place on September 23rd in the Saitama Community Arena (~3000) and SENGOKU XI on November 7th in the Ryogoku Kokugikan.

Update #3: The FW GP Reserve fight will be between a fighter who fought in the GP and one who didn’t participate. Also planned to participate on the SENGOKU IX card are Sanae Kikuta, Eiji Mitsuoka, and Kazuyuki Fujita.

Update #4: Lightweight and Welterweight title fights are planned to take place at SENGOKU NO RAN 2010.

Update #5: Kitaoka was quite cocky at the SENGOKU IX press conference, saying that while Hirota is strong in Cage Force, he is strong in a dimension that is below his (Kitaoka’s) dimension. Kitaoka went on to say: “It will be an easy to understand fight”. He also said that he thinks that Yokota is stronger than Hirota.
