Matchups Announced for Sengoku Bantamweight Asia Tournament

The first round matchups for the Sengoku Raiden Championship Bantamweight Asia Tournament 2010, which starts at SRC Asia Volume 1 on July 4th at Differ Ariake, was set Friday via random draw.

The second round of the tournament will be held in late August at SRC 14. One seeded fighter from Shooto, Pancrase, Cage Force and ZST will face the second round victors in the third round of the tournament to be held in late October presumably at SRC 15. The eventual champion of the tournament will have to win five times if they are an unseeded fighter or three if they are seeded.

There were open applications for the tournament to Asian fighters under the age of 35 who have at least five professional fights or Olympic experience although those rules weren't strictly adhered to.
