“Minotoro” Featured On Updated Sengoku 6 Lineup

SengokuWorld Victory Road this week finalized the lineup for Sengoku 6 on November 1st at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan.

Heavyweight Antonio Rogerio “Minotoro” Nogeuria, the twin brother of interim UFC heavyweight champion Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, headlines the event against Moise Rimbon (13-7-3).

He also holds notable wins against Dan Henderson, Kazushi Sakuraba, and Alistair Overeem.

Rimbon, a member of Europe Top Team, is a veteran BodogFight and Sekgoku veteran who also enters the fight riding a two-fight win streak.
