What's next for Yoshihiro Akiyama??
 
Hey guys after the UFC canceled the fight between Wandy and Akiyama, who do you think will be his next opponent??
I tought about the fighters he could possible face, but couldn't really find anybody who would be interesting for him and for us to see. I actually would had loved to see him fight Bisping, but he already got his opponent in Wandy.

So who do you think will be next for him?

Theyll probably give him Sonnen.

Hopefully WW, Akiyama is a relatively small MW who could probably make WW and when Dan Hardy is our #1 contender its pretty clear the division needs to get a whole lot sexier.

Isn't he already fighting Nate Marquardt:confused02:

What about Demian Maia??

Marquardt would not be a good opponent for Aki. Nate is the size of a dinosaur, and Aki for whatever reason, doesn't believe in defense, if his fight with Belcher was any indication.

Give him Maia: a BJJ artist who doesn't believe in hurting his opponents!

WHichever division, it'll become almost unbearably sexy.

Nate Marquardt? Really?

I think a bout between him and CB Dollaway would be great. It'll certainly do a lot to raise CB's stock should he be able to beat Akiyama.

BobbyCooper 11-29-2009 04:49 PM

mmhh:confused02: i don't think CB Dollaway can beat him. And Nate Marquardt would be a very very tough fight for him. I wanna see him against somebody like Maia or Sonnen where he can pull of a nice victory! I kinda like this guy, i think he is good for the UFC at the moment. And it's always nice to see some Asians at the top!
