Hiroshima in the build up to Diaz/Sakurai?

I could be wrong, but in the build up to the Diaz/Sakurai fight were they showing black and white footage of Hiroshima?!

Yeah they were showing pearl harbor and hiroshima clips it looked like when they were showing the aoki vs melendez clips and when they showed the diaz/sakurai clip.

Unhappy Hiroshima

The Japanese sometimes have a hard time letting things go, I guess this is one way that they used it!

Well Hiroshima was a big deal, but I think invoking the Pacific war for the sake of an MMA match is a little over the top.

No offense to the Japanese, but we're whooping them in mma as well now.

Didn't know it was that serious still.

I guess it's no different than Mirko and the Croatian war footage used in his fights.

you got to love japanese promoters, nothing like chilling home sunday evening(or mondays) taking a hit of the bong and watch DREAM fight previews without subtitles, suddently you see bombs, pearl harbor, cartoons, rock band, spaceships and then comes the freak match-up

Yup, they can certainly entertain. If not a little oddly sometimes.

In Japan it's all about entertainment, very little about actual skill!
