Been slacking a bit, but some miscellaneous Japan news.
K-1's March card has added the following fights to its card
- Koji vs Hirotaka Urabe
- Kosuke Komiyama vs Masanobu Goshyu
- Yasuomi Soda vs Jun Nakazawa
The Koji vs Hirotaka presser was comedy gold. Will translate if I have time.
Another year, another unearned Umeno Stadium title shot. This time vs Kulabdum Sor. Jor. Piek-Uthai at REBELS.54 on Feb 18th for the Lumpinee lightweight title.
Kaito Wor.Wanchai (Fukuda) incidentally posted a mini twitter tirade calling out so called stadium champions who haven't even won in Thailand without pointing any fingers.
I was about to ask why Koji beef with everyone has.
Kulabdam vs Genji is a great fight, neither of them deserve to be fighting for the title but there should be some fireworks.
dunno why but this footage of the awards is funny, pretty much every fighter unconfortable with the camera recording them eating lel
there is tons of gif material on this video
the screaming girl of the commentary team(white dress one) looks confused af
Issei vs Nongrose - Should be good since they actually fight in the same weight division.
Nong Rose in Japan. Gabi vs. Nong Rose for Rizin NYE 2018 in the works.
yes Nong Rose in Japan is a perfect fit. Maybe a mixed rules fight against Gabi Garcia a la Aoki vs. Nagashima
Issei's on a slide. KNOCK OUT jinxed him by promoting him as the Tenshin of the West. Gonna get TKO'd.
Tenshin's opponent is supposed to be announced this week as well. Hopefully Ebata.
Isn’t he on a 2 fight losing streak?
Issei? He's technically back in the win column after a victory over Noto in Dec, but I think he had lost 2-3 in a row before that against no-names.
Ebata is 33-1-3 on a 4 fight win streak. Don't know about Nong Rose.
Issei fought at Rangsit a few times, won 1 by ko and lost the other. He's good fun to watch. Nong Rose is a better fighter but Issei throws down hard he could pull off an upset.
nong rose is on a 3 fight losing streak having lost in Paris for her last fight and her 2 previous in Thailand.
Tenshin's opponent confirmed as Suakim Sit Sor Tor Taew
Toughest test for Tenshin by far. With Wanchalong he was undersized and getting up there in age but Suakim fights at 57kg and is at the peak of his career.
He actually has a bit of size on Tenshin, is top 10 in Lumpinee and looks good lately. Let's see.
I'm glad he's getting someone of this caliber after that RIZIN tournament but Suakim definitely leaves some openings in his defense which is obviously dangerous vs Tenshin. Hopefully he doesn't get finished early, I really want to see someone weather the storm and give him a run for his money in the later rounds.
February 13th will be Suakim Hype Video Day.
Finally a good fight for this guy! Looking forward to it.
Rooting for Suakim but I can see Tenshin scoring the KO because Suakim always seems to be dragged into a brawl. No complaining about this one - it is a rather logical follow up to Wanchalong - but still I believe his management is carefully picking his opponents. not that there's anything wrong with it, I'm just pointing it out.
