Fabricio Monteiro! SENGOKU Return In September?
Tatame reports that Fabricio Monteiro still has a four fight deal with SENGOKU and that he is ready and thinks he will return to the SENGOKU ring in September. It seems that SENGOKU have had trouble finding him opponents until now. That will hopefully not be the case in the future with their their current focus on the welterweight division.
Monteiro lost in his sole SENGOKU appearance against Nick Thompson, a fight which some people thought should have been scored differently, back at the first event of the organization in March of 2008. After that he has only had one MMA fight, on July 12th of last year in Brazil where he defeated Japanese Yoshitomo Watanabe.
Monteiro is definitely a welcome addition to the SENGOKU Welterweight title rush which could end at SENGOKU NO RAN 2010 where two fighters who keep winning their welterweight fights in the organization were/are planned to face off.
