Kasugai (23-6-1-1) finished UFC veteran Shunichi Shimizu with a first round guillotine on Saturday. On May 26th he will be back in action against Fukushima (15-6-1) who is riding a two fight Pancrase winning streak.
As announced yesterday the card also features a welterweight bout between Japanese legends Yuki Kondo and Akihiro Gono. This will be the third fight between the two men, the first took place on a Pancrase card in 2001.
Pancrase 305 is set for Studio Coast in Tokyo and will also feature a flyweight fight between Mamoru Yamaguchi and Toru Ogawa.
Next up for the promotion is Pancrase 304 which is set for Studio Coast on April 14th. The flyweight and lightweight titles will both be on the line.
