This card carries a Pancrase vs. WAND FIGHT TEAM theme as 2 Pancrase lightweights are set to do battle against 2 WAND FIGHT TEAM lightweight representatives. 


In the first inter-promotional battle of the night, Pancrase's Yoshiaki "Bancho" Takahashi will clash with WAND FIGHT TEAM's Michael Costa. 

 
In the second inter-promotional battle, Pancrase breakout lightweight up and coming star, ISAO will do battle against the UFC and PRIDE veteran and current Legacy FC lightweight title holder Jorge "Macaco" Patino who steps in as a replacement for Dave Mazany who suffered a fractured fist injury. 

 
The card has suffered some minor last minute changes as Shintaro Ishiwatari was originally scheduled to fight Nobuhiro Yoshitake at bantamweight, however Yoshitake failed to make weight and they will now be fighting at a catch weight. Pancrase officials have notified that if Ishiwatari wins the fight, then the fight will be considered a victory for Ishiwatari and a defeat for Yoshitake, however if Ishiwatari loses the fight or the fight culminates in a draw, then the result will be overturned into a NC. 

 
Another last minute change to the card has been made to the opening fight of the night in which Gaku Hirayama was originally scheduled to clash against Chiharu Toda, however Chiharu came up sick with the flu and the fight has now been changed as Takugo Kobayashi will step in as a last minute replacement to do battle against Hirayama in the first fight of the night.


A different fight was featured on this card in a REBELS kickboxing fight in which Hinata beat Masakazu Yasukochi in round 1 by TKO.


Aside from the MMA fights, there was a catch wrestling showcase fight which had Minoru Toyonaga beat Takashi Hasegawa by unanimous decision.
