The bout order for Thursday’s World Victory Road season finale, “Sengoku: Soul of Fight,” has been set.
The all-day martial-arts festival includes 15 MMA bouts.
The Dec. 30 headliner features a featherweight title fight between champ Marlon Sandro and challenger Hatsu Hioki, and former title-challenger Kazuo Misaki meets fellow middleweight Mike Seal in the co-headliner.
“Soul of Fight” takes place at Ariake Coliseum in Tokyo. HDNet Fights CEO Andrew Simon told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) some portion of the event, which includes additional Muay Thai and grappling matchups, is expected to air via delay on HDNet in the U.S., though details still are being finalized.
The MMA fights are scheduled for the latter portion of the show, which features a staggering 28 fights in all.
In addition to the co-headliners, “Soul of Fight” features the finale of the organization’s season-long eight-man welterweight tournament. Yasubey Enomoto and Keita Nakamura meet in the final bout.
