Mousasi fighting Kyotaro was absurd to majority of the worlds kickboxing fans as it was a huge mismatch. Kyotaro was a prospect on a Masato level who is Japans best ever kickboxer.
Kyotaro beat Aerts who is one of the best strikers ever in any standing discipline then beat Le Banner who is the Tyson of the kickboxing world. He lost to Schilt valiantly during that period sometime but Schilt is the best HW champ in history.
Mousasi as an underdog matched Kyotaro and beat him fair even rocking him with incredible timing. For sure Kyotaro underestimated him and may of been slightly injured from the K1 final 8.
Mousasi and PED Overeem showed the kickboxing world that MMA striking is world class.
If Mousasi joins the UFC then we have a great addition. Hopefully he kept improving his wrestling from the Ovince fight.
