WVR announced a new event "SENGOKU"

World Victory Road had an interview in Tokyo on Nov 27 and announced their new event, "SENGOKU".  

Their new event name is selected from the pick a name contest.  Their fist event is held on Mar 05, 2008 in Tokyo Yoyogi Kyogijyo.  Hidehiko Yoshida, Sanae Kikuta, Makoto Takimoto and Ryo Kawamura will fight in this event.  

They will have 6 different weight classes.  The fight is 5 min./3R and the championship fight is 5 min./5R.  Knee kicking, and stomping on the ground are allowed but soccer ball kicking and elbow punching are prohibited.

Yoshida said he would like to enjoy fighting in this new event.  Other fighters and I will do our best to have greats fight here.  I would like to fight in other events if I get an offer, but this event is my main ring to fight.

Hopefully these guys will not interfere with the M-1 Global/Pride Staff org.

Sounds good. I heard Kid Yamamoto will fight on this show. Hopefully they can get Gomi on it too.

At the Press Conference where K-1 announced that Kid would be on the Dynamite card he said he would fight in Feb for WVR also. He said it wasn't exclusive though.
