I don't agree with your top 11 Japanese fighters, but I DEFINITELY do not agree with the top 30 P4P on the link you posted, there is almost NOTHING correct about that list. Just one example, wtf are Diego and Fitch doing above people like BJ, Mirko, Rampage, and Tito of all time pound for pound. That is complete insanity.

graciehunter has a little shameless behaviour in the past
It has got to be saku. He is what made MMA popular in Japan in the first place. The Japanese loved to see him take on westerners and beat them. That's what grew mma in japan

Smile The First Japanese MMA Fighter

I'm going to go out on a limb and say Antonio Inoki. The man was a Japanese prowrestler who had his roots in catch wrestling. In the 1970s he did a number of what could be considered MMA matches against various fighters of various disciplines. In these matches he only had one loss and was awarded what could be considered an MMA title in the WWWF World Martial Arts Heavyweight Championship. He is considered a legend in Japan and in my opinion as well.

All but two of those matches were worked.
