Most American MMA fans were pretty hyped for UFC 85:  Bedlam today.  It was a decent card.  Not the best but very decent with some great action.  But hardcore MMA fans will be awake at 3 a.m. this morning to watch SENGOKU 3 from Japan.  There’s some really big names on this card and could very well rival today’s UFC event.  Ever since Pride Fighting Championship folded, American MMA fans have been jonesing for a new Japanese promotion to rise up and fill that void that was left.  There’s just something about the high-level Japanese MMA productions that appeal to our sense of aesthetics.  They really know how to put on a show.  Here’s the fight card for the event:
