In the main event, 2004 Olympic judo silver medalist Hiroshi Izumi will make his MMA debut against kickboxer Antz Nansen in a light heavyweight bout.
Former EliteXC heavyweight champ Antonio Silva will fight "Big" Jim York in a match that should set the winner up in a title bout at Sengoku's New Year's event.
Keep an eye on Midwesterner Dan Hornbuckle, who at the last Sengoku event knocked out Akihiro Gono with a brutal head kick. Fighting for Sengoku, he accepts another step up in competition against Nick "The Goat" Thompson.
The final IFL lightweight champion Ryan Schultz will look to end back-to-back losses when he faces Kazunori Yokota. The Team Quest fighter dominated the IFL 155-pound division 2007 through 2008 but has been stopped in his two Sengoku bouts against Mizuto Hirota and Jorge Masvidal.
Here are the weigh-in results converted to pounds.
Hiroshi Izumi (205) vs. Antz Nansen (204.2)
Antonio Silva (267) vs. "Big" Jim York (253.1)
