Akiyama would beat Anderson Silva, not necessarily because he's better, but he is Japanese.

Forum Bets: 2-0

This would be a dream come true.

Yoshihiro Akiyama is my favorite fighter and to see him in the UFC?! WOW, I'm excited. I hope everything works out and he joins the UFC.

I really think Akiyama will clean out the MW division.

Bring on Marquardt, Henderson, Franklin, Cote, Almeida, anybody, including Silva.

Pride of KOREA:

Yoshihiro Akiyama (Choo Sung Hoon)
Denis "The Super Korean" Kang
Yoon Dong Sik
Dong Hyun "Stun Gun" Kim
Bu Kyung Jung
Hong Man "The Techno Goliath" Choi

My two favorite MWs! They both have great standup and ground games. Oh man, oh man, I WANT TO SEE THIS!

Gonzaga vs dos Santos - UFC on VS
Vera vs Jones - UFC on VS
Bibs vs Hansen - Dream 13
GSP vs Hardy - UFC 112
Gomi vs Florian - UFN 21
Nelson vs Struve - UFN 21

Smart move by the UFC to break into Korea. Akiyama is sponsored by Nike over there, the guy is huge.

Lot of interesting fights too, I just hope he wins one and when Rogan comes for the post fight interview, he grabs the microphone and begins to sing.

Akiyama would beat a lot of the UFC MW's. Dude's judo is excellent, he hits hard as hell, has good stand-up, a great ground game and can take a punch.

swpthleg, of course, Akiyama will rock the shades and have cocoa butter lotion rubbed all over him.

Akiyama would beat Anderson Silva, not necessarily because he's better, but he is Japanese.
Korean, but I see your point. Asian's baffle Anderson.
