Masvidal-Damm, Kikuta-Rice added to 'Sengoku' 3

World Victory Road, the Japan-based organization behind "Sengoku," has added two more bouts to its June 8 event, bringing the total amount of matchups to at least eight.

American Top Team's Jorge "Gamebred" Masvidal will look to stretch his winning streak to eight when he takes on Rodrigo Damm (7-1), who earlier last month inked a four-fight deal with World Victory Road.

Masvidal of Miami, Florida began his career in May 2003 with a promotion near him, the American Fighting Championships, where he has recorded wins over "The Ultimate Fighter 5" cast members Joe Lauzon and Brian Geraghty. Masvidal broke out in August 2006 when he competed for the Bodog Fight promotion, scoring wins against three UFC veterans, Yves Edwards, Keith Wisniewski and Steve Berger.

Damm, who recently joined UFC heavyweight champion Antonio Rogerio Nogueira's gym in Brazil, is a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Blackbelt and a wrestling champion in Brazil. Like Masvidal, Damm also went 3-0 with Bodog Fight.

The second new bout has Sanae Kikuta (25-6-3), a former Pancrase champion and UFC/PRIDE competitor, taking on England's Chris Rice (12-5).

Still unannounced for the card is an opponent for Duane "Bang" Ludwig.

Here is the current card for "Sengoku" 3:

Heavyweights: Hidehiko Yoshida vs. Maurice Smith
Middleweights: Kazuo Misaki vs. Logan Clark
Heavyweights: Kazuyuki Fujita vs. Travis Wiuff
