Leo Santos vs. Kazunori Yokota LW Title Eliminator Announced for Sengoku VIII

20090323-00000000-spnavi-fight-view-000_mediumWorld Victory Road announced the first fight for Sengoku's "Eighth Battle" in May on their weekly TV Tokyo show, SENGOKU-G. Newly-signed Nova Uniao black belt Leonardo Santos will face 2008 LWGP finalist Kazunori Yokota in a match which a post on Sengoku's site indicates as a title eliminator. The winner would likely face Sengoku Lightweight Champion Satoru Kitaoka at "Sengoku X" in August.

Santos (brother of former IFL champ and current WEC featherweight Waggney Fabiano) has been on a tear in the past year, with four first-round victories in as many consecutive Shooto Brazil events. It was expected that he would be placed in immediate title contention when his signing was announced by WVR last month. Yokota, meanwhile, has not seen action since his unanimous decision loss to Kitaoka in last year's tournament finals.
