It was a rough night for Takanori Gomi, as “The Fireball Kid” dropped a split decision to Russian Sergey Golyaev at Sengoku 6 (video is above). Kind of makes you wonder what happened to the guy who used to dominate in Pride. His last victory was a lackluster decision win over the relatively inexperienced Seung Hwan Bang, and now this fairly uninspired performance. You can’t really say he fought poorly, but you also can’t say he looks like the same guy he was two years ago.
Jorge Santiago and Satoru Kitaoka were the big winners on the night, each notching two victories in their respective tournaments. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira also picked up a unanimous decision win over Moise Rimbon.
