M-1 Global kicks off another full MMA weekend with two rematches co-headlining Showtime.
Yasubey Enomoto (6-2), a 27 year old Swiss MMA prospect, has signed with M-1 Global and will face 170-pound champion Shamil Zavurov at M-1 Challenge XXV on April 28th. Enomoto is a Sengoku veteran who fought his way to the finals of the promotion's 2010 Welterweight Grand Prix. M-1 Challenge XXV will be shown live on Bloody Elbow.
As expected, the lack of star power at World Victory Road's Sengoku Raiden Championships 15 produced some rather lackluster performances. Most notably, Olympic Judo silver medalist Hiroshi Izumi baffled fans with his propensity to strike with James Zikic in their main event showdown.
BloodyElbow.com brings you live play-by-play and results from Sengoku Raiden Championship's SRC 15, featuring a main event between Hiroshi Izumi and James Zikic, plus fighters like Maximo Blanco, Kazunori Yokota and more.
Hatsu Hioki submitted Jeff Lawson in the first round of their featherweight bout at Sengoku Raiden Championships 14, setting up a long-awaited encounter with 145-pound champion Marlon Sandro. In other action, unknown Mongolian Jadamba Natantungalag dominated Akihiro Gono en route to a unanimous decision win.
Sengoku Raiden Championships 14 (SRC 14) takes place in Japan on Saturday and Bloody Elbow will have full live results, play-by-play and commentary beginning at 2AM ET. In the main event, middleweight champion Jorge Santiago defends his title against the former "Grabaka Hitman," Kazuo Misaki.
