The upcoming Sengoku 7th battle will be shown this Friday on HDNet. It will probably shown at an odd hour, so get your DVR's ready. Sengoku will have the opening round of its 143 pound featherweight grand prix along with two non-tournament bouts. All fighters made weight and are ready to go.
Ryo Kawamura vs. Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal- Mo Lawal is (3-0) in his brief MMA career fighting exclusively in Japan. His "King Mo" persona will be in full effect, as well as his superb wrestling and striking skills. Mo has TKO victories over Travis Wiuff, Fabio Silva and Yukiya Naito. Kawamura (9-3) is a solid fighter in his own right, while fighting primarily in Pancrase before coming to Sengoku. He will have his hands full with Mo.

James Thompson vs. Jim York- This is a fight between two big bruisers. Punches will be thrown, and one of these big boys will get knocked out. Thompson is coming off an odd NC in the ill fated Strikebox promotion, and a loss to Kimbo Slice. Jim York (9-2) was knocked out in his last fight, but prior to that had 9 straight wins including a win over UFC vet Brad Morris.
