World Victory Road has announced the names of an additional four participants for their scheduled “Sengoku V” show, which will take place on September 28th at the Yoyogi National First Gymnasium in Tokyo, Japan.

Strikeforce veteran Yuki Sasaki will join Evangelista “Cyborg” Santos, Jorge Santiago, Kazuhiro Nakamura, and Siyar Bahadurzada as those competing in the first round of the organization’s inaugural middleweight grand prix. The winner of next Saturday’s middleweight bout between Frank Trigg and Makoto Takimoto is expected to join the tournament at a later date as well.

In addition to Sasaki, Alexandre “Xande” Ribeiro, Roger Gracie and Jorge Masvidal have been announced as fighting at the event as well. Opponents were not given for any of the aforementioned fighters but will likely be announced following the completion of “Sengoku IV” next weekend.
