The featherweight fight between Yojiro Uchimura and Koyomi Matsushima is added to Pancrase 286.

This is going to be a survival match for these two strikers.

Last year, Matsushima got KO’d by Rolando Gabriel Dy Navarette in just 23 seconds.

He came back with a win over Juntaro Ushiku in September but faced Marlon Sandrso in December and got KO’d in little less than three minutes.

Uchimura also faced Sandro back in 2013 and took the fight to a draw. However, in 2016, Uchimura lost to Hatsu Hioki, Lion Takeshi and Hanzo Tanaka so he is currently on a three-fight losing streak.

This fight will be held at three three-minute rounds.
