Sengoku Fighters Announced

Monday, 9 June 2008

Yesterday's event was not the best, but at the event they announced a Lightweight tournament, the winner will face Takanori Gomi on either NYEor the first Sengoku event next year.

The participants announced yesterday:
-Satoru Kitaoka (20-8-9)
-Eiji Mitsuoka (13-5-2)
-Kazunori Yokota (6-1-3)
-Duane Ludwig (16-8-0)
-Rodrigo Damm (8-1-0)

The first round will take place in Sengoku 4, August 24.

They also announced were some additional very exciting fighters:
-Frank Trigg (16-6-0)
-Eldari Kurtanidze (0-1-0) (Atlanta 96 and Sydney 00 bronze medalist Free-stylewrestling)
-Georgi Gogchlidze (Free-style wrestling world championships 2001 gold and 2006 silver medalist)
-Ramaz Nozadze (2004 Athens Olympic silver medalist greco-roman wrestling 96kg)
-Zurab Zviadauri (2004 Athens Olympic Gold medalist 90kg Judo)

As we can see, Sengoku seems to be looking more at adding Olympic athletes more than the usual experienced MMA fighters. I think thefuture looks very bright with these new additions. Does this mean that the momentum has turned back to Sengoku? Lets wait and see, Sengoku 4 definitely looks like it will be an interesting event though.

I think Sengoku will be able to hold their own for the time being, they need to maintain solid card like Sengoku and Sengoku 2, I don't know how many more people will go to see events like they just recently showed. With the addition of the LW tourny, and with newcomers like Trigg, future events look to be pretty good.

The new signings look very interesting. I think Sengoku 3 was too close to 2. Now they have time to really build a card and it will be interesting to see what the 4th card will look like.
