An idea for UFC return to Japan

UFC is pretty much a lock to return to Japan at some point in 2014, though it may not be as early as in '12 & '13 (February/March)

That being said, they should definitely have:

Brock Lesnar vs Fedor Emelianenko (5-round main event)
Shogun Rua vs Minotoro Nogueira (PRIDE rematch)
Josh Barnett vs Minotauro Nogueira (PRIDE rubber match)
Yoshihiro Akiyama vs Renzo Gracie (Best match-up Gracie could get if he is serious about returning in UFC)


Ok.. obviously some of those are more serious than the others, but still a man can dream.

I'm more interested in seeing who else thinks they should make the Shogun/Nog & Nog/Barnett rematches, I think now is the perfect timing for both.

How can you make a UFC Japan card and omit Gomi, Hioki & Kid Yamamoto and the possibility of borrowing Shinya Aoki from ONE FC? Wasn't Kid pulled from some card where the rumor was he was moved to the Singapore card? He's not on that card.

Did I say that these fighters wouldn't be on the card? No..

I'm talking specifically about the 4 fights that came to mind (2 actually, the other 2 were for fun)

Also, "possibility of borrowing Shinya Aoki from ONE FC?"

LOL ok.

Not to say I wouldn't welcome the idea, but he has turned down multiple UFC contracts even as recent as a month ago for the Singapore card.. I'd go as far to say that there's probably a better chance we see Fedor in UFC than Aoki.

yawn, I was hoping this was going to be a decent thread and not this dumb shit.


Next UFC Japan event will be on the UFC Fight pass, with a bunch of guys you never heard of.

Mark Hunt vs. Roy Nelson
Takanori Gomi vs. Jim Miller
Hatsu Hikoi vs. Mike Brown
Kid vs. some scrub he can win against

And then a bunch of local talent.
