Antonio Silva to Sign With Sengoku, Flout Suspension and Fight January 4
Tatame.com is reporting (in Portuguese, translation via Google): Suspended by the athletic committee of the United States on charges of doping, Antonio (Silva) can not fight in America before July 28, 2009, when it was terminating the suspension. After losing in the courts of the athletic commission, also saw the EliteXC, an event in which Silva was heavyweight champion, close the doors. With that the athlete had to get out of ATT demand for a new home, which has everything to be in Japan "I'm negotiating my way to Japan The Sengoku made me an offer to fight on January 4 and we are seeing that, "said Peza, who is entering the common justice against the athletic commission. Pretty garbled, but the gist is clear. Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva is considering violating his California suspension and fighting in Japan as early as January.

Randleman Vs Barnett Possible For Sengoku 7
UFC and Pride veteran Kevin Randleman may face Josh Barnett at Sengoku 7 on January 4th, his team have told Fighters Only. Having been forced onto the sidelines by various injuries in recent years, Randleman has recently stated that he intends to have as many fights as possible in 2009. And rumour has it that one of those fights may be with Barnett in January, as Sengoku are struggling to match the Baby-Faced Assassin. Speaking to Fighters Only earlier, a spokesman for Randleman said: “Kevin is going to focus on light-heavyweight for now. “But I can see that Sengoku is having trouble getting opponents for Josh, so it is always a possibility.” Randleman himself said: “After the last few years of setbacks due to injury I just want to fight. I am not picky and not one to turn down an opponent, so I am just looking forward to giving the fans some more great MMA memories to talk about.” He added that he hopes to return to fighting in America in 2009, as he “cannot wait” to get back in a cage.

Misaki-Santiago, Gomi-Kitaoka Announced for Sengoku VII
Despite Takanori Gomi’s upset loss to Russian product Sergey Golyaev at World Victory Road’s “Sengoku VI” event this past weekend, the organization has still decided to match up against lightweight grand prix winner Satoru Kitaoka for it’s vacant lightweight title at their next scheduled show on January 4 in Japan. Golyaev squeaked out a razor-close split decision over the former PRIDE champion on Saturday, handing him a rare loss and his first defeat in over two years, while Kitakoa defeated both Eiji Mitsuoka and Kazunori Yokota to win WVR’s inaugural lightweight tourney and called out Gomi after his victory even though “The Fireball Kid” had already lost his bout earlier in the night. Streaking middleweight Jorge Santiago will hope to continue his rise up the rankings when he faces slick Japanese striker Kazuo Misaki for the promotion’s vacant middleweight title at the event as well.

Gomi-Kitaoka Still Planned
TOKYO -- Sergey Golyaev tried to throw a wrinkle into World Victory Road’s plans to have the winner of its lightweight grand prix face Takanori Gomi for the vacant lightweight championship. Despite Golyaev’s split decision victory over Gomi at Sengoku “Sixth Battle” on Saturday, the promotion plans to move forward with a Satoru Kitaoka-Gomi title fight on Jan. 4.

Jorge Santiago Breaks the Glass Ceiling
Jorge Santiago is a fighter that doesn't get a ton of press but has slowly crept his way into the top 10 rankings. This guy has not only won 8 fights in a row but he's finished all of them - all against top level competition. His opponents in that span haven't been "elite" level fighters but they have all been tough and most are UFC or PRIDE veterans. After a disapponting 1-2 run in the UFC Santiago has picked up his game considerably and the results are paying off. He entered the Strikeforce four man tournament and came out on top - finishing both opponents. Then he entered the Sengoku MWGP and acheived the same result. No one in the middleweight division is on the roll that this guy has been on - except for a man by the name of Anderson Silva.

KJ Noons, Krazy Horse And Nick Diaz To SENGOKU?!
I wouldn’t post this if it wasn’t for: After being stripped of his title, Noons is no longer under contract with EliteXC and is now going to do freelance boxing while waiting for another opportunity to come. He’s hoping that opportunity comes with the top lightweights in the world, “I am really interested in a Takanori Gomi fight or any top lightweights at the 155lb or 160lb for that matter.” - FightLine and: Dream pays Nick Diaz in full from his last bout in May. Diaz agrees to return to fight in Japan, however at this point it is unclear for which organization. - GracieFighter A quite big Japanese MMA blog made a post today that KJ Noons, Charles “Krazy Horse” Bennett, and Nick Diaz are going to SENGOKU and that KJ Noons will most likely debut on the New Years Event. Remember that this could be false though. However, the timing of the two articles and the blog post is quite interesting.
