    Correct.. full korean.. its common for koreans born in japan to take japanese names to avoid racism which is blatant and tolerated there

    Akiyama is one of my favorites but he's freaking 40 years old and fighting has clearly become a part time hobby over the last 5 years or so. I hope he wins but I would understand if he didn't. Win or lose ... Sexy regardless.

    They would if they wanted to be the superior asian race... nearly everything from korea is a clone of japan (car and tech companies, food etc..) and for the lesser educated honda/kia, sony/samsung, teriyaki /bulgogi, sushi/kimpap etc.. plus there is the still lingering who conquered who in WW2..

    Yep. Covering himself in coconut oil. Saku said in his biography it was like grappling an eel.

    Exactly. No matter what happens, the most important thing is that he is sexy. So who cares if he doesn't win, we will still all be more than satisfied to bask in his presence

    I see.

    Did his parents just make up his Japanese name for him with no ties to anyone named Akiyama?
