Japan lives and breathes MMA this Saturday, with another edition of Sengoku Raiden Championship to take place. Among the main bouts on the card, Jorge Santiago defends his middleweight belt against hometown boy Kazuo Misaki, and Jiu-Jitsu black belt Léo Santos enters the promotion’s ring for a third time, against Sotaro Yamada.
“I’m happy because I’ve been training hard and I expect another win. The idea is to make it to the top of the event. I want to win this fight and return at the end of the year, who knows? maybe for a title fight or a fight that sets me up for one,” Léo Santos told GRACIEMAG.com.
Furthermore, the event features two GP’s, one welterweight and the other bantamweight. All the fighters have already made weight and are ready for their matches.
