UFC and DREAM vet Kuniyoshi Hironaka got his second win in as many months at Saturday's Cage Force 11 in Tokyo, dropping former Olympic wrestler Katsuhiko Nagata with a right straight before finishing him off at 3:41 of the opening frame. Afterward, Hironaka made an appeal for a match against Cage Force lightweight ace Mizuto Hirota.
The ADCC-bound "K-Taro" Nakamura and PRIDE vet Daiju Takase picked up decision wins, while Yusuke Sakashita - a recent addition to Yoshihiro Akiyama's Team Cloud - was dropped in 17 seconds by Wajyutsu Keisyukai's Yuta Nakamura.

UPDATE: Tony Loiseleur has a report up at Sherdog:
“If I get a chance to fight Cage Force’s lightweight champion, Mizuto Hirota, I’d [win and] defend the belt for 10 years and can die happy, I think,” Hironaka said. “I’d also like to go back to America again, to challenge myself. Since I was born a man, I want to challenge myself against the strongest.”
