The interim lightweight title will be on the line at Pancrase 308. Salimkhan Sadulloev faces Yusuke Kasuya at Shinkiba Studio Coast on September 29th and the winner will go home with a belt.

As usual the promotion took to Twitter to announce the matchup:

Neither man comes into this bout on a good run. Sadulloev ( 7-4) was stopped in the second round by Hiroto Uesako at Pancrase 303, his only fight for the promotion to date.

Meanwhile Kasuya (10-5-2) is coming off a first round stoppage win at Pancrase 304. That victory snapped a run of four straight losses that saw him lose his spot on the UFC roster.

The reigning Lightweight King of Pancrase is Takasake Kume. He faces Koshi Matsumoto at ONE: ‘Century’ in October and will presumably face the winner of this fight in a unification bout afterwards.

As previously announced Pancrase 308 will feature the semi finals of a Strawweight Grand Prix semi final. Nori Date will face Hyun Ji Jang in one while Emi Fujino taking on Edna Oliveira in the other with a title shot on the line for the winners.

The card also features a flyweight fight between Toru Ogawa and Riley Dutro, a featherweight contest between UFC veteran Issei Tamura and Katsushi Sugiyama and the finals of three Neo Blood tournaments.
