Sengoku 13 results: Sandro demolishes Kanehara in 38 seconds at Raiden Championship


At the fabled sumo arena, Ryogoku Kokugikan, a new SRC featherweight champion was born, as Marlon Sandro blasted the inaugural and defending champion, Masanori Kanehara, in just 38 seconds.

Sandro -- a product of the famed Nova Uniao team -- wasted no time in closing the distance and unleashing a flurry of punches in the opening frame. Having forced Kanehara to retreat with the onslaught, he uncorked a devastating right uppercut that collapsed the 2009 Sengoku Featherweight Grand Prix champion to the mat.

With four first-round knockouts in his last five fights, Sandro has continued to leave a trail of destruction behind him, cementing himself as a force to be reckoned with in the featherweight division.

In the promotion’s welterweight grand prix, UFC veteran Keita Nakamura finished the Bellator season one welterweight runner-up, Omar de la Cruz, in the second round via technical knockout. The former welterweight King of Pancrase, Takuya Wada, also advanced to the second round of the tourney with a close decision victory over Jae Sun Lee.

Elsewhere, Venezuelan wild man, Maximo Blanco, earned a high-profile victory with a second-round stoppage of Rodrigo Damm. Former ADCC winner and Grabaka founder, Sanae Kikuta, faltered in his welterweight debut against the unheralded Swiss national, Yasubey Enomoto.
