A lightweight bout between Yusuke Kasuya and Hiroto Uesako has been added to Pancrase 314 on 12 April.

Kasuya (10-6-2) a veteran of Japanese MMA who competed in the UFC, will return after a stretch that has seen him lose five of his last six fights.

He last competed at Pancrase 308 where he lost a bid to claim the Pancrase interim lightweight title against Salimkhan Sadulloev.

On 12 April he will meet fellow JMMA veteran Hiroto Uesako (16-9), who returns to Pancrase after competing with RIZIN for the past 12 months. Uesako recently suffered a loss at the hands of Yusuke Yachi at Bellator Japan in December.

Six bouts have been announced for Pancrase 314, including a women’s flyweight bout between Takayo Hashi and Raika Emiko.

Pancrase will kick off its 2020 campaign on 16 February with a lightweight unification bout between Salimkhan Sadulloev and Tatsuya Saika.
