World Victory Road on Friday confirmed three more bouts for its Jan. 4, 2009 Sengoku 7 event in Saitama, Japan.
The event is headlined by a pair of previously announced title bouts. Kazuo Misaki will face Jorge Santiago for the Sengoku middleweight championship, while Takanori Gomi, despite losing his most recent bout, will fight Satoru Kitaoka in a lightweight title bout.
In bouts announced on Friday, making his third appearance at a Sengoku event is Muhammed Lawal, know to the Japanese crowd as King Mo. He faces a tough Yukiya Naito. Although Lawal is 2-0, Naito should be a stern test. The Japanese fighter maintains a 15-4-2 professional record and is currently riding a six-fight winning streak.
The two other bouts revealed on Friday pit Maximo Blanco against Seigo Inoue and Hidetada Irie vs. Minoru Kato.
