The Featherweight King of Pancrase and Cage Warriors featherweight champion are set to clash in a non-title bout on April 27 at the Korakuen Hall in Toyko, Japan.
The battle of champions will see the inaugural featherweight K.O.P. Yoshiro Maeda taking on English featherweight Danny Batten, who has held the Cage Warriors 145-pound title since 2005.
The Fabio Negao Nascimento-Yuji Hisamatsu bout was scrapped by Pancrase Tuesday when they found out Nascimento was knocked out last Saturday at No Limits: Proving Ground in Irvine, CA.
Furthermore, Pancrase is claiming Nascimento breached his contract by taking the fight one week prior to his scheduled bout against Hisamatsu.
