Four additional fighters, all signed with outside promotions, have camped in at Sengoku for the Asian bantamweight grand prix. World Victory Road/Sengoku announced the names of those who made it to the list Monday morning.

The additional listers fall in the bantamweight quarterfinals list: Manabu Inoue (9-5-1 MMA, 0-0 SRC), Shunichi Shimizu (17-6-9 MMA, 0-0 SRC), Akitoshi Tamura (14-9-2 MMA, 0-0 SRC) and Taiyo Nakahara (10-6 MMA, 0-0 SRC), as announced by WVR officials.

Although the playdate and venue have been specified, matchups have not been determined until now. HDNet is broadcasting Sengoku 15 in the U.S. all the way from Ryogoku Kokugikan, Tokyo on October 30.

As mentioned, the four participants are from other organizations: Inoue represents Pancrase, where he holds a title; 5-year-old pro Shimizu is from ZST Tokyo; WEC 40 winner Tamura comes from Shooto; and Nakahara appeared in GCM last April 2008 and is looking for his third winning streak in the tourney field.

Japanese organization Sengoku gets back in the action with a bout set, the Sengoku Raiden Championship 15, on October 30.

World Victory Road’s upcoming event will roll out its welterweight grand prix and the quarterfinals of the 20-man Asian bantamweight competition. It will be aired live on HDNet from Ryogoku Kokugikan, Tokyo.

Keita Nakamura (pictured) will face Takuya Wada in a welterweight fight; Yasubey Enomoto and Taisuke Okuno will fight one another in the same division.

Bantamweight bouts will feature Wataru Takahashi vs Shoko Sato, Jae Hyun So vs Shintaro Ishitawari–all winners from the Sengoku Asia qualifying tourney last July 4, and then the Sengoku Raiden Championship 14 before making it to the quarterfinals.

The finals will most likely take place later this year and will award the first-ever Sengoku welterweight champion.
