SENGOKU: Pre fight conference.
SENGOKU which is sponsored by WVR holds its 2nd event on May 18. SENGOKU had a press conference on May 17 and all participating fighters showed up after the private weigh-in.
Josh Barnett: I'm glad to fight in the main event. I'm also happy to fight Monson because I know him very well. I may not take an offer if my opponent was a big and scary fighter who has tattoos all over his body. We are friends and I know he is very pretty teddy bear which has a smooth touch . I want to give him a big hug after the fight.
