What We Learned From Sengoku 7

Sengoku 7 - not quite Pride in its glory days, not quite an old Shooto event taking place in a gymnasium. Right on. So what did we learn?
  • Dave Herman really needs to train for bouts longer than one round. Or at least run on a treadmill, ride a stationary bike or maybe swim to work or something. His cardio was suckeriffic.
  • Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva prefers competing in Japan to being licensed to fight in the United States ever, ever again.
  • Muhammed Lawal, a.k.a. "King Mo", gets more kingly and royal with each appearance. I predict his next ring entrance will entail him sitting upon a throne while two dozen tiny Japanese girls struggle to carry said throne from backstage to ringside.
  • Jorge Santiago is one of the baddest middleweights around not good enough for the UFC.
  • Takanori Gomi - phooey!
