Meh, like usual.

Some pics I screened:



"DAT ASS"



"LIVER KICK BRO!"



"Ughhhh...uhhh.."



"U dead dawg"



"Who?"



"He tiny"



Also, Jake O'Brien is still trying to make the weight so he didn't weigh-in.

Some people said Ishida looked thin...

Who knows, I think he will beat DJ regardless.

I'll be back later for the fights, hopefully some of you guys are here.

Dream 15: Epic night of Leg lockin', liver kickin', Karl stomping fights.

First off, best fight of the night was Mizuno shocking the world, and on the way shocking himself. I remember seeing his last fight in K-1 Scandinavia - it was an epic fight if remember correctly. So good to see him in the final of this weak ass Gp that turned into a potentially epic finish.

Sucks Manhoef has had some rough fights of late. It wouldn't be as bad if his K-1 career was going great, usually I can lean back on that, but both are in peril. His style is so cool though, hopefully he can find a way to win.



Karl Amoussou was more aggressive during Pre-fight than the actual thing. I was hoping for a Naku win today, but wanted it to be a compelling match. Karl just got picked apart, he had no answer at all. Not even on the feet. Depressing to say the last - considering the expectations people had of him. Of course, it's one fight against a game opponent.

Naku is back, people.



The worst part of the great night of fights was the Jake "don't make weight" O'Brien affair. I was almost glad the commentators ripped him so bad, but I don't know the circumstances around the missed weight. It did seem like they announced the fight a long time ago... either way, karma struck him. What a weak ass way to go out, especially when you're going against a p4p type guy, and former champ. Jake should be kicking himself.

He needs to go get some pocky, chill, then plan his return. If he's in shape he can give a lot of guys problems, so either UFC, Strikeforce, or even Dream would be a good fit for Jake. More than likely he will fight on some smaller promotions against decent opponents before making his return to the big leagues.



Speaking of big leagues, Omigawa's opponent, Jong, should get some more fights. How the **** was he supposed to come out and fight a top 5 guy and have success? It's not like hes ever fought anyone on this level, no need to be fed to the big dog. He showed heart on another level; the fighters who make it out of Korea are tougher than hell, would like to see some more jump over to Orgs we can watch.

If Omigawa stays in Japan, or goes to WEC, they're a lot of fights to happen. So the sky is the ******* limit. Personally, I hope he stays with Dream and goes for the title.

Also, he made girls come at the sight of his hair.



Highlight of the night: DJ popping Ishida's ear. Nah, just kidding. But I did see it as a moral victory. We need more DJ.taiki, he will kick your ass with his Thailand leg smashing shins. Was a bad match-up from the get go, but it's a fight. Ishida was just better.

Interesting Caol uno is coming back...



The biggest heart breaker of the night was KK-JZ's fight. I was really pulling for Kikuno in this fight. Did any of you score it a draw? maybe my love for KK got in the way of my brain in this one. Still, he seemed to have dominated more minutes of the fight. I think some people would agree with me.

But, JZ needed the fight more. Good to see him get a great win again - been a while. He's coming to eat some Strikeforce fighters up. They should be ready, he will be more polished, more aggressive, and will be ready to finish.

And finally...

WAR AOKI LOL

What a badass. He just destroyed a fighter some people had in their top five, and did it with one submission attempt. I won't lie, I was worried as **** going into the fight. Especially after I just re-watched the fight with Gil earlier this week. Pure beast, though.

Sucks for Kawajiri, he's a badass as well. He's the second top five guy Aoki has destroyed, I wouldn't be worried. He will be back.

Some Bad news:
Quote:
It's been a long time coming, and regular visitors have noticed a drop in my posting over the last few months. As it is now, there are not enough hours in the day for me to be able to keep it up. I have also moved from Japan, and its harder to keep on top of things.

I have met a lot of nice people through this blog over the close to 3 years I have been following the MMA scene in Japan. There are a lot of people I want to say a big thank you to (in no particular order): Joachim Hansen, Antonio Carvalho, Steve Magdaleno, Kazuyuki Miyata, "Mach" Sakurai, Paul McVeigh, Celine Haga, Koichi Pettas, Sean Frew and all my freinds that joined me at these events. Also everyone who has followed my blog, commented and sent me mails.

I've had a great time writing and going to events, and I will continue to write when I go to events, but the updates will be fewer and not as regular as it used to. So for now, sayonara!
Wow, no more Japan-MMA blog. Another site that provides good information gone.

Enomoto In GP! Clash With Natural (T)KO Artist Takagi
Quote:
Two new fights have been added to the August 22nd SRC14 event.

In one of the SRC Welterweight GP Series 2010 Block B fights Mizuto Hirota teammate Taisuke Gouten Okuno will take on Nick Thompson, who enters the MMA ring for the first time since losing to Dan Hornbuckle at SENGOKU X.

In the other Block B GP fight, Kenta Takagi will battle Swiss/Peruvian/Japanese Yasubey Enomoto who in his last fight at SRC13 beat veteran Sanae Kikuta in very impressive fashion.

Takagi comes from a Wrestling/Sambo background but all of his 6 MMA victories have come by (T)KO in the first round. Hes 24 years old and in 2004 he won the National Athletic Meet Wrestling tournament at 66kg, in 2006 he won the All-Japan Sambo Championship Hope 74kg tournament, and in 2007 he placed 3rd in the 76kg class of the DEEP-X Real King Tournament and placed 3rd in the Middleweight division of the All-Japan Amateur Shooto Championship (he was dsiqualified in/before the semifinal).

He also had a Kickboxing fight in 2008 at J-Network where he KOd former Japan Boxing Middleweight champion Satoru Suzuki in the 2nd round. He has never been stopped in a fight holding a 6-2 Pro MMA record, 3-1 Amateur MMA record, and 1-0 Kickboxing record.

Takagi: Ill win all fights by KO, take the GP, and then beat Dan Hornbuckle by KO.

Okuno: I intend to win all fights by KO and take the championship by a wide margin.

KTaro Nakamura and Takuya Wada will face each other in one semifinal and the winners of these fights will face each other in the other.
