Hatsu Hioki submitted Jeff Lawson in the first round of their featherweight bout at Sengoku Raiden Championships 14, setting up a long-awaited encounter with 145-pound champion Marlon Sandro. In other action, unknown Mongolian Jadamba Natantungalag dominated Akihiro Gono en route to a unanimous decision win.
"I have a fight scheduled for September, in the Sengoku x Dream event, only I still don't have an opponent. I couldn't fight at the end of last year at the fusion of the two big Japanese events, but this year they're doing it in September and I'm already preparing, although I don't have an opponent. I believe I will face Michihiro Omigawa who is fighting for Dream and is the only guy to beat me, so I think they should give me the rematch." - Sengoku featherweight champ Marlon Sandro speaking to Tatame. Sengoku doesn't currently have an event scheduled for September, so it seems likely that Sandro is referring to Dream 16 on September 25th, an event which is rumored to be a "mega-card" for primetime TV.
