3/5 Sengoku - Yoshida fights Barnett/Cyborg loses

Sunday 3 February 2008

Sengoku has confrimed , Josh Barnett will take on Hihiko Yoshida. FightOpinon was the first site I read the rumors. A lot of sites (including me) thought Roger Gracie would be Yoshida's opponent.

This will be Barnett's long awaited return to MMA, but he has been competing in catch wrestling and will have a pro-wresting fight before this, so ring-rust should hopefully not be an issue. CAN'T WAIT TO SEE HIM BACK!

The Sengoku card is looking very strong!

"Cyborg" should be able to compete, but he lost to Gegard Mousashi by TKO in the 1st round on Friday. I have not seen the fight, so dont know too much. Sherdog has a report on it. Either way, he has just over 1 month to reset and get ready for another fight against another very tough opponent in Takimoto. "Cyborg" has lost 3 of his last 4 fights.

Sanae Kikuta 26-6-3 vs. 10-8-0 Phil Baroni
Makoto Takimoto 4-3-0 vs. 15-10-0 Evangelista "Cyborg" Santos
Kazuo Misaki 18-8-2 (1NC) vs. 13-1-1 Siyar Bahadurzada
Hidehiko Yoshida 7-5-1 vs. 20-5-0 Josh Barnett

Also participating:
-Ryo Kawamura 7-1-2
-Takanori Gomi 27-3-0
-Fabricio Monteiro (?) 16-6-0
