    Kato was on a one fight deal for the Schilling fight.

    it's a Multi-fight exclusive contract.

    He was asking for it, keeping those hands down.

    That was a brutal KO, not surprising they want to sign him. Still, Schilling is a very bad MMA fighter, so beating him means very little. The guy is 2-5 against generally very weak competition. Is Kato for real? We'll see. Should give him the worst fighter they can find next and build him up slow.

    I think he's for real.

    Something interesting about Hisaki Kato is his young mma record. He's 5-1. All of his 5 wins are by either KO or TKO; in other words, he's a finisher!! No boring point fights when it comes to him. He's not flashy but he's definitely an active and animated fighter and he can be absolutely relentless. And he also has that left hand that will test all but the most granite-like chins.

    You guys can be the judge for yourselves. I tracked down his other pro mma fights and posted them Here and Here.

    He looks like Damien Maia had sex with Lyoto Machida and they had a baby.

    He gassed out mid first round in his only loss. Wonder how he's improved since then

    I personally think him gassing was what done him in. I think Kato takes Sugimoto down in a rematch.

    They would have been stupid not to, especially since Schilling seems to be a bust.

    Like someone else said above match him with Marshall or something, MW div is a mess in Bellator.

    Schilling being a bust is terrible for them, they wanted to make him a two sport Spike star so bad.

    He's a LHW though isn't he?


    Anyways his KO of Shilling was a thing of beauty. Might still be KOTY for me.
