Hatsu Hioki Chose SENGOKU. -

Five fighters were announced for the SENGOKU Featherweight GP today. They are American Top Team’s undefeated WEC veteran Chris Manuel, Hatsu Hioki, Featherweight King Of Pancrase Marlon Sandro, undefeated KOTC veteran Nick Denis, and the talented Ronnie Ushikawa (Mann) from Team Trojan.

WVR PR Kokuho said that fighters from 7-8 nations will participate in the GP. There are already fighters from 5 different nations (USA, Japan, Canada, The UK, and Brazil) so expect Russia and South Korea to be two of the possible three other nations.

Update: Kokuho said that the plan in the beginning was 8 Japanese and 8 foreign fighters, but now it looks like the number of Japanese fighters might increase a little.
