Favorite Hatsu Hioki will take on Ronnie Ushiwaka, as reported Nam Phan will fight on Michihiro Omigawa, “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung will face ZST’s Masanori Kanehara, and Featherweight King Of Pancrase Marlon Sandro will battle hard-hitting Nick Denis.

Update: Depending on their result at Pancrase on April 5th, SENGOKU training players Shigeki Osawa and/or Maximo Blanco (The True Knight, Makishi) might participate in the opening fight of SENGOKU VIII.

Update #2: Chan Sung Jung wants revenge for Kim Jong Man and made a KO declaration. Kanehara said that it won’t be that easy. Omigawa thinks that the striking and jiu-jitsu of Nam Phan are strong but he is confident from his last fight with Davis.

February 17, 2009 4 comments

Sherdog forum member Boondockvideo writes that James Thompson will participate in SENGOKU VII on March 20th. The opponent is not 100% set yet. You can follow the thread here.

I can also write that Nam Phan will definitely participate in the SENGOKU Featherweight GP if nothing strange happens. He should be announced at SENGOKU’s next press conference.

SENGOKU 2009 Schedule! Nam Phan In Featherweight GP?

January 23, 2009 6 comments

WVR PR Kokuho said at the press conference today that 6 events are being planned for 2009. They will be in March, Early May, July, August, September, and November (plus SENGOKU NO RAN 2010 in early 2010). The Featherweight GP participants will be announced next week and Kokuho said that a fighter from American Top Team (Pequeno?) and Team Trojan (James Thompson, Zelg Galesic) will be in it. Could the fighter from Team Trojan be Ronnie Mann?

Another possible GP participant seems to be Nam Phan who would then be moving down to Featherweight from Lightweight. Thanks to reader sprewell for putting this into light. From his website:

Nam trains w/ Andy Wang and Bao Quach for his upcoming fight in Japan (March 2009)

Update: Hidehiko Yoshida might return in July.

Update #2: Kokuho said that he wants to hold a one night 4-man tournament which would include Josh Barnett and Antonio Silva to determine the first ever SENGOKU Heavyweight champion.
