Sengoku held its 12th event this Sunday in Japan, and some big stars from the world of ground fighting took front and center.
In the evening’s main event, Jorge Santiago returned the L Mamed Khalidov added to his record the last time the two met. Only this time the organization’s middleweight belt was up for grabs, and the Brazilian managed to hold on to it, after winning the unanimous decision.
Jiu-Jitsu black belt Marlon Sandro made quick work of his opponent relying on his boxing yet again, dismantling Tomonari Kanomata by knockout in just 9 seconds of combat. The win likely sets the Nova União teacher up for a featherweight-title showdown with Masanori Kanehara on June 20th.
Another beast from Team Nova União, Leonardo Santos made a quick meal of his opponent, too, but relying on his Jiu-Jitsu to Kiuma Kunioku in the initial assault.
