As we have seen with Sengoku's other tournaments, rather than using fighters that are already established within the promotion, the tournament will be drawing from second tier promotions in Japan and abroad, ultimately leading to a welterweight title match in 2011.
The second tournament bout at SRC 13 will see the former welterweight King of Pancrase, Takuya Wada, make his promotional debut against Jae Sun Lee. Wada has been undefeated since February 2007, only surrending his Pancrase crown after refusing to grant a rematch to Kengo Ura. Jae Sun Lee is looking to rebound after a loss in his first Sengoku bout - a spirited competitive decision to judoka Makoto Takimoto.
The tournament semifinals will take place at SRC15 to be held towards the end of October and the final will be held at SRC 16 close to New Year's Eve.
Earlier this month, Sengoku also announced an Asian bantamweight tournament to get underway on July 4th. A welterweight tournament reserve fight will take place at this event but the particpants are yet to be named.
Along with the Asian bantamweight series, this is the second tournament that World Victory Road has announced this month with the winner of the welterweight GP going on to face an already established top welterweight for the first SRC welterweight title in 2011.
