10 March Tussles Worth Watching
Despite a lack of star power, February was a solid month for mixed martial arts. The Nate Marquardt-Wilson Gouveia and Nick Thompson-Paul Daley fights -- Sherdog.com’s top-ranked bouts for the month -- delivered the goods as far as all-out action between evenly matched opponents was concerned. The signs for March are similar. Most of the sport’s top pound-for-pound talent will not return until summer, so guys like Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Aleksander Emelianenko will get their chance to shine. With tough opponents like Keith Jardine and Ibragim Magomedov in their way, fans are guaranteed competitive matchups.

LC Davis Vs Michihiro Omigawa At Sengoku
With only one loss on his professional resume, Midwest American fighter L.C. Davis has finally found out who he will be fighting in the opening round of the Sengoku Featherweight Tournament scheduled for March 20 on HDNet. Davis on Sunday confirmed to MMAWeekly.com that he will square off with Michihiro Omigawa. Though he's no slouch, Omigawa needs a win badly, having lost three of his last four bouts with a draw in the most recent. The odds aren't really in his favor with Davis, however.

Going, Going, Gomi
After suffering his second consecutive loss, former top ranked lightweight Takanori Gomi will be taking some time out of the spotlight to work on getting his fight game back to where it once was. Gomi, one of Japan’s most popular fighters, states that he needs to get back in the gym to learn and not teach. After his most recent lackluster performance against Satoru Kitaoka, which found him on the wrong end of an achilles lock at “Sengoku no Ran 2008,” Gomi is calling for change.

Ishii Satoshi Makes Appearance At Sengogu In UFC Shirt
Here is the exact words he announced the Japanese audience. “Happy New Year everyone. I am the MMA Fighter, Ishii Satoshi,” says a nervous sounding Ishii to thunderous applause. “I am very honored to be here, addressing you all today. There was a rumor the other day that a certain fighter lost at an MMA event, and people were saying it was me. That’s not true,” says Ishii, perhaps referencing Akihito Tanaka’s performance as Kinniku Mantaro at Dynamite. “Do you folks like MMA? It’s really quite wonderful, isn’t it? I like it a lot,” stammers Ishii nervously, eliciting laughs from the crowd. “In the future, I will fight in US, but I will return to this ring with a big souvenir for you all,” says Ishii. “I see that the Yokozuna, Asashoryu is here today, so I’d like to fight him maybe,” he jokes with a good natured stutter. “Please support me this year,” he closes.

Kitaoka, Santiago Crowned By Sengoku
SAITAMA, Japan -- Satoru Kitaoka and Jorge Santiago were crowned champions after they finished their opponents by submission at Sengoku “No Ran 2009” on Sunday before some 18,000 fans at the Saitama Super Arena. In the main event, Kitaoka kept true to his word, as he put away Takanori Gomi before the former Pride Fighting Championships lightweight king could do anything of note. Sizing up each other for a tense moment, Kitaoka was the first to act, as he dove for a takedown. Gomi spun out of the way to avoid the shot, but the persistent Kitaoka made another attempt and ate a grazing hook in the process.
