    Kid Yamamoto wrote on Instagram that he has been diagnosed with cancer and is currently battling the disease. Yamamoto wrote the post on Instagram in his native Japanese, but it has been translated by multiple outlets.

    Scary shit.

    Kid is one of my favourite fighters

    You'd never think people in peak or at least great shape would get cancer. Shows you how unpredictable life can be. Hope he gets well soon!

    That's terrible news.

    KID is one of my all-time favourite fighters. I saw a post from someone saying they "hope KID wins his fight", and got excited because I thought he was getting back in the ring, then when I checked, it's cancer. Fuck!

    Isn't marijuana supposed to help treat cancer?
    If yes then I'm optimistic about his recovery.
