I think this one was the least surprising of the night for me. Takahashi wasn't able to mount any offense from the guard as Herring g'n'pded his way to victory.

The circus event of the night. Sentoryu joins a growing list of sumo players that have failed to do well in MMA. Giant Silva's submission by kimura was a bit like watching a beginners groundfighting class. I think Sentoryu would have been best served while in GS's guard to just continue to hammer away at GS's midsection. GS didn't look like he was enjoying those punches.
