To take what is confirmed first:
Sengoku 11 will take place on November 11 in Ryogoku Kokugikan, that is normally the venue for the Sumo tournaments in Tokyo and is a very good arena.
3 fighters are confirmed: Kevin Randleman, Michihiro Omigawa and middleweight champion Jorge Santiago.
Jorge Santiago was meant to be facing the winner of Kazuo Misaki and Kazuhiro Nakamura, but with Misaki's legal problems that option was discarded. It remains to see who the opponent will be.
