Update on Sengoku 8

Quote:
A light-heavyweight showdown between Brazilian jiu-jitsu whiz Alexandre "Xande" Ribeiro (1-0) and 12-and-a-half year veteran Keiichiro Yamamiya (34-23-9) has been added to May's "Sengoku Eighth Battle."

Scheduled for May 2 at the National Yoyogi Stadium in Tokyo, Japan, the event will also feature the second round of the organization's featherweight grand prix.

Ribeiro vs. Yamamiya joins Leo Santos vs. Kazunori Yokota as the only officially announced bouts on the card.

The 28-year-old Ribeiro is an amazingly well-decorated Brazilian jiu-jitsu world champion who is widely considered to be among the world's top grapplers. The Brazilian made his professional MMA debut with a gutsy, third-round TKO over Takashi Sugiura in September 2008 at "Sengoku Fifth Battle."

Yamamiya bean fighting professionally in 1996. A long-time Pancrase veteran, Yamamiya fought once for the UFC in 1999 and has notable career wins over Yuki Kondo, Chael Sonnen, Nate Marquardt, Denis Kang, Iuhisa Minowa, Chris Lytle, Jason Delucia and Minoru Suzuki, among others. Yamamiya has also come up short in battles with Gustavo Machado, Keith Jardine, Akihiro Gono, Paulo Filho, Jeremy Horn, Bas Rutten and Guy Mezger.

"Sengoku Eighth Battle" is expected to air live in North America on HDNet.

With the addition to the card, the event now includes:

* Leonardo Santos vs. Kazunori Yokota
* Alexandre "Xande" Ribeiro vs. Keiichiro Yamamiya
* Featherweight grand prix second-round participants: Nick Denis, Hatsu Hioki, Chan Sung Jung, Masanori Kanehara, Nam Phan, Michihiro Omigawa, Marlon Sandro and Ronnie Mann

according to mmajunkie the Santo v Yokota fight could "determine a future opponent for current Sengoku lightweight champion and 2008 lightweight grand prix winner Satoru Kitaoka"

This sounds pretty good right now. And I'd rather see Santos win as well.

I can't wait to see all these remaining fights though.

man i dont think the event will ever get here. While Dreams GP is good, this GP is almost unpredictable which has me on pins and needles begging for it to get here already.
