Sengoku 6 Results: Gomi Upset By Golyaev, Santiago and Kitaoka Win Grand Prixs

Kitaoka Submits Mitsuoka at Sengoku 6Takanori Gomi, a consensus top-10 lightweight, was upset at World Victory Road’s Sengoku 6 on Saturday at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, suffering a split decision loss to relative-unknown Sergey Golyaev.

In other featured action, Jorge Santiago TKO’d Kazuhiro Nakamura in the third-round to win the promotion’s middleweight tournament and Satoru Kitaoka topped Kazunori Yokota via unanimous decision to capture the lightweight grand prix title.

Gomi was expected to get past Golyaev with relative ease and square off with the lightweight tournament winner Kitaoka in 2009 for the first-ever Sengoku lightweight title. However, those plans were derailed on Saturday when Golyaev, who trains out of the Red Devil Sport Club alongside the likes of Fedor Emelianenko, Aleksander Emelianenko, and Gegard Mousasi, earned the split decision victory, his fourth-straight win.

Golyaev improves to 11-6 with the winning effort while Gomi falls to 29-4 in the loss.

Notables Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal, Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, and Joe Doerksen also picked up wins at Sengoku 6.
