Sengoku 7 Results and Recap

Quick Results:

  • Satoru Kitaoka def. Takanori Gomi by submission (heel hook) — Round 1, 1:41
  • Jorge Santiago def. Kazuo Misaki via technical submission (rear naked choke) — Round 5, 3:26
  • Sanae Kikuta def. Hidehiko Yoshida via split decision
  • Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal def. Yukiya Naito via TKO (punches) in Round 1, 3:54
  • Antonio Silva def. Yoshihiro Nakao via TKO (knee injury) in Round 1, 1:42
  • Eiji Mitsuoka def. Sergey Golyaev via technical submission (arm bar) in  Round 1, 4:22
  • Mu Bae Choi def. Dave “Pee Wee” Herman via TKO (punches) — Round 2, 2:22
  • Maximo Blanco def. Seigo Inoue via TKO (foot stomps) — Round 1, 0:38
  • Hidetada Irie def. Minoru Kato via TKO (punches from mount) — Round 2, 4:21

 

  • Gomi’s quick loss to Kitaoka means 2 things for World Victory Road.  1 – Their pre-crowned champ is not the Japanese star they expected 2- Gomi’s marketability and talent are waning fast.  That is pretty crazy for a guy who was ranked the number 1 lightweight in the world at the time of PRIDE’s collapse.  I wonder if  Gomi thinks he should have gone with the UFC now.  His stock is greatly hurt though
  • Kitaoka is apparently better than given credit for
  • Eiji Mitsuoka has looked pretty good and he could be a name to remember
  • Bad loss for Dave Herman in the midst of ProElite’s slow death.  It looks like he may not be a lock for a contract in a big U.S. promotion now that he lost to a no-namer
  • Muhammaed Lawal continues to impress and draw attention.  He may be a real guy to take note of.

  1. Hi, I couldn’t find any other way to get in tough with you so I thought I’d just leave a comment on one of your posts.

    I just wanted to know if you would be open to joining me as a writer on my new MMA resources blog/website. Possibly a potential partnership. Please email me at arbak3@gmail.com or contact me at the email address I entered in the mail field of this form if you are interested.
