A huge Pancrase 308 goes down this Sunday with a grand total of 18 fights set for Studio Coast in Tokyo.

Pancrase 308 will be headlined by an interim lightweight title clash between Russian striker Salimkhan Sadulloev and ex-UFC fighter Yusuke Kasuya.

Sadulloev (7-4) will be hoping to turn around a loss to Hiroto Uesako at Pancrase 303, while Kasuya (10-5-2) will be looking to continue his win streak after a first-round stoppage win at Pancrase 304.

Both will be warming up to face reigning Lightweight King of Pancrase Takasake Kume, who is busy prepping for his bout against Koshi Matsumoto at ONE: Century next month.

In the co-main event no. 1 lightweight contender Toru Ogawa faces Hawaiian veteran Rilley Dutro, who is yet to find success inside the Pancrase cage.

Top ranked women’s strawweight Emi Fujino will meet Brazil’s Edna Trakinas in the opening round of a four-women strawweight tournament for the promotion’s strawweight title.

Tomorrows event streams live on UFC Fight Pass from 4pm local time and will see the conclusion of the Neo Blood strawweight, flyweight, featherweight and bantamweight tournaments.
