Kazunori Yokota gets the knockout of the night at Sengoku 10 with a devastating KO of Ryan Schultz.

“Sengoku: Tenth Battle” took place Wednesday, Sept. 23, 2009, at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan. The event aired live on HDNet here in the U.S. beginning at 2 a.m. CT / 12 a.m. PT.

The highlight of the night was Kazunori Yokota’s huge overhand right knockout of Team Quest’s Ryan Schultz midway through the first round. Schultz has dropped his last three bouts.

The main event also provided some nice fireworks between Olympic judo silver medalist Hiroshi Izumi and Muay Thai specialist Antz Nansen. It was the MMA debut for both fighters, and Izumi made the terrible mistake of trying to stand and trade strikes with Nansen.

Joe Doerksen headlines Canadian Fighting Championship this Friday

The Canadian Fighting Championship returns with “CFC 2” this Friday May 22nd at the Winnipeg Convention Centre. Headlining the card will be UFC veteran Joe “El Dirte” Doerksen (41-12) taking on Snake Team member Greg “Blade” Babene (6-4). Babene is filling in for Ron Faircloth (31-16) who had to pull out due to “undisclosed medical concerns.”

Doerksen has won his last two fights since being released from the UFC in 2008. Doerksen’s most recent victory came via third round TKO over Izuru Takeuchi at “Sengoku 6” last November. Doerksen’s opponent, Babene, trains under fellow Frenchman Cyrille Diabate, whose Snake Team is producing such prospects as Cheick Kongo and UFC 98’s “Professor X“. Diabate is also the striking coach for Team US on The Ultimate Fighter season 9.

Babene will have his hands full against Doerksen who is a submission specialist. If Babene could pull off a win against a veteran of Doerksen’s stature it would be huge for the up-and-comer. Here is the full line-up for “CFC 2:”
