Marlon Sandro vs. Hatsu Hioki Booked for Sengoku Soul of Fight

Sengoku Raiden Championship promoter World Victory Road announced four fights on Wednesday for its end-of-year "Soul Of Fight" event including the biggest featherweight bout in Japan for the year; Shooto Champion Hatsu Hioki will take on Sengoku featherweight champion Marlon Sandro in the Brazilian's first title defense.

Aside from controversial split decision losses to Michihiro Omigawa, both Sandro and Hioki have torn through the competition within Sengoku over the last two years, both earning consensus top-ten rankings.

Also announced: Kazuo Misaki will return for the first time since his thrilling fight of the year candidate with middleweight champion Jorge Santiago to face Mike Seal; Yukio Sakaguchi will come out of retirement in a SRC "jacket rules" bout against Jin Suk Jung; and New Japan Kickboxing Champion Norihiro "Musashi" Miyamoto and WPMF champion Hiroki Komata will clash under Muay Thai rules.
