How Freakin' Awesome Was Masakatsu Funaki?

Dude used to rock a perm. That's totally badass. He rocked a perm and leg-locked fools.

The guy was a great sub guy for his time, executing some nasty, swanky subs, like rockin' toe holds and shit. His fights with Bas Rutten (Second one, even though he lost, but man, what epic, epic shit that was. First was him schooling Bas), Yuki Kondo, Frankie Shammy, Suzuki and mothergrabbin' BRAGA! were so much fun. Nowadays, he's a grumpy old dude, but not really an asskicker. Tamura smacked his bitch up and Sakuraba ended up pwning him. But, maybe with a perm, Funaki will get back to kickin' ass.

This picture is so gay, and by "gay" I mean "Totally awesome."

Give the boss don of Japanese MMA his props.

Yeah it is so gay, just check out that bod.

Funaki was awesome, and once he finds his oldself, he will win the DREAM MW Title.

EDIT: In all seriousness, he was a great part in the rise of Japanese MMA and is definitely a LEGEND of the sport.

Fedor fights I want to see..

Fedor vs. Josh Barnett
Fedor vs. Randy Couture
Fedor vs. Tim Sylvia - DEMOLISHED
Fedor vs. Andrei Arlovski - DEMOLISHED

The man was a warrior back in the day, and I have huge respect for his submission game. He's one of my old favorites, because of his versatility. Truly the pioneer of Japanese submission fighting.
