‘Bigfoot’, Nansen, Hornbuckle Dominate at Sengoku 10th Battle

(Silva vs. York. Props to MMA Share)

Sengoku 10 went down earlier today in Saitama, Japan, and what it lacked in big names, it more than made up for in thrilling finishes. In the headlining bout, Olympic judo silver medalist Hiroshi Izumi made the brilliant decision to stand and bang with Kiwi kickboxing champ Antz Nansen, and got worked; the ref eventually stopped the fight after Izumi was punched to the mat three times in a single 35-second stretch. Meanwhile, in the fights that you might actually care about, Antonio Silva ended "Big" Jim York‘s night in the first round with an arm-triangle choke, following a methodical performance that saw Bigfoot control the standup and take York down with ease.

Dan Hornbuckle followed up his knockout of the year candidate against Akihiro Gono last month with another fantastic performance against Nick Thompson, earning a second-round TKO with a flurry of strikes that began with a straight left and ended with a knee to the jaw. (We’ll post the video when we find it.) Also, Kazunori Yokota scored a first-round knockout over former IFL lightweight champion Ryan Schultz, who has now lost three straight fights in Sengoku.

>Meanwhile, in the fights that you might >actually care about,

So this is an indirect way of reminding us that the average UFC fan is too stupid to appreciate fights if the fighters dont ejaculate on reality TV or werent college wrestling jocks?

Olympic champion vs 3 times Muay Thai champ seems more impressive than BillBob from Buttfuck, Indiana but you go with what you know I guess...

Michael Schiavello is almost as annoying as Mauro Renallo. Who is it that keeps hiring these guys that shout constantly? Do people really enjoy that?

Not only has Ryan Schultz lost his last 3 fights he has been KO'd his last 3 fights. Boy's chin has turned to dust. Japan has not treated him well.
