Two veteran featherweights will face off at Pancrase 313. Issei Tamura has been booked to face Suguru Nii at Shinkiba Studio Coast on March 8th.

Tamura (13-10) is best known for his brief stint with the UFC. He is a former Pancrase interim featherweight champion and knocked out Kazushi Sugiyama at Pancrase 308 last September.

Nii (12-10) is coming off a split decision loss to Hiroshige Tanaka at Pancrase 310. He is currently competing in Japan again after a successful year long stint fighting in Hawaii.

As previously announced Daichi Kitakata will make the first defence of his strawweight title at Pancrase 313. The 28 year old is scheduled to fame Adam Antolin.

Meanwhile two top bantamweights will face off as Wataru Mimura faces Sho Sekihara. Also on the card is a flyweight fight pitting Hawaii’s Rilley Dutro against Taiki Akiba.
