Representin' The MA's
World Victory Road today announced an 11th fight for their upcoming Sengoku 14 event, adding Leonardo Santos vs. Sotaro Yamada to the card. A Nova Uniao black belt, Santos looks to build on a submission win over former King of Pancrase Kiuma Kunioku. Santos has earned victories in six of his past seven outings, and the lone loss came via split decision. Five of Santos' seven career wins have come via submission. Meanwhile, Yamada fights for the first time under the World Victory Road banner. Yamada returns to MMA competition for the first time since August 2008, when he fought to a draw with Ryoji Suzuki. Since that time, Yamada has been focused on grappling competitions. Yamada's MMA record includes a 1-3-1 mark in his past five trips to the ring.
