Despite entering the contest with just a 1-1 record in the organization, and a 1-1-1 overall record in his past three contests, nine-time Shooto veteran Mizuto Hirota (12-3-1) capitalized on a brutal fourth-round barrage of knees to claim Sengoku's lightweight crown with a TKO of former champion Satoru Kitaoka (25-9-9).

The bout closed out a full night of action featuring featuring 13 bouts at World Victory Road's "Sengoku Ninth Battle" at Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan.

The card, which also featured the conclusion of Sengoku's 2009 featherweight grand prix, airs in the U.S. via tape delay Friday on HDNet.
