Just finished watching it...was a pretty decent card.

-Kazushi Sakuraba vs. Jurij Kiselov - Sakuraba by submission
-Yoshihisa Yamamoto vs. Katsuyori Shibata Shibata by early KO
-Melvin Manhoef vs. Yoshiki Takahashi Manhoef by KO
-Caol Uno vs. Ali Ibrahim Uno by submission - armbar
-Kazuyuki Miyata vs. Kultar “Black Mamba” Gill Miyata by submission - choke
-Hiroyuki Takaya vs. Andre Dida Dida by KO
-Ryuki Ueyama vs. Vitor Ribeiro Ribeiro by KO
-Hideo Tokoro vs. Kazuya Yasuhiro Can't remember.
-Gary Goodridge vs. Jan “The Giant” Nortje Goodridge by KO
-Mighty Mo vs. Kim Min Soo Mo by TKO
-Shin Hyung-Pyo vs. Bernard Ackah Ackah by KO

Sorry, can't remember the exact results, but I at least got the winners right. They had some really great matches. Gary Goodridge looked embarassing against Jan "The Can" Nortje, who they apparently dragged out of a truck stop prior to the fight.

Caol Uno's armbar on Ibrahim was sick, as he was getting dominated from the top.

The fights were enjoyable, but I found too many of them were one-sided. Ehh well.

"Shaolin" Ribeiro won by submission with a triangle armbar and Tokoro won by armbar.

It was a decent event. Like you said, it was a bunch of one sided matches. Entertaining, but no really great fights. Not one fight went past the 1st round.

The problem is K1's trying to stack the fights so you have a Japanese fighter in almost every bout. But realistically, they don't have that deep of a talent pool to draw from, especially in the heavier divisions. Even Caul Uno and Sakuraba looked like they were going to get knocked. That Ukrainian's offence on his back in his fight with Sakuraba was sick.
