Pancrase 314 is set for Shinkiba Studio Coast on April 12th. Yusuke Kasuya faces Hiroto Uesako in the first fight to be released from the card.

As usual the promotion announced the matchup via Twitter:

Both men will be looking to rebound from recent losses. Kasuya (10-6-2) challenged unsuccessfully for the interim lightweight title at Pancrase 308.

Kasuya is a UFC veteran but has lost five out of his last six fights. The sole victory during this stretch came against Masayuki Kikuiri at Pancrase 304.

Meanwhile Uesako (16-9) suffered a soccer kick KO at the hands of Yusuke Yachi at Bellator Japan last month. The former Deep featherweight champion was also stopped by Luiz Gustavo at Rizin 19.

Prior to this pair of defeats he had won seven out of eight fights. That spell included a victory over reigning lightweight champion Salimkhan Sadulloev at Pancrase 303.

Next up for the promotion is Pancrase 313 which is set for Tokyo on March 8th. Adam Antolin challenges Daichi Kitakata for the strawweight title in the main event.

There are currently nine events on the 2020 Pancrase schedule. All of them are set for Shinkiba Studio Coast in Tokyo.
