    Needs to retire.

    His striking looks horrible.

    His striking defensive. Also horrible.

    Uses judo to score a take down but cant' advance guard against a part-time mixed martial artist.

    Should be in his prime, but looks lost in the world of MMA.


    Hang em up Ishii. You're finished.

    At least people liked Sapp.

    He won a gold medal and his own people think he's a weirdo.

    For sure he didn't end up living up to expectations. Don't think he needs to retire though, isn't like he's getting KOed all the time.

    Go back to facing low level guys for a bit and see if he can improve.

    Bust. It was only a matter of time before fighting aged legends backfired (The Abu Schaubi effect)

    At this point, it doesn't look like he'll ever be a world beater, even if he drops to light heavy. But 205 would be a better fit for him if he has anything left in the tank, along with a move to Bellator, though I'm guessing as a judo gold medalist, his best paydays are in Japan.

    So, if that's the case, then, a handful more of these heavyweight fights in Japanese promotions, and then a quiet retirement. But hey, he's still under 30, so who knows.

    Over dramatic much? The guy is making big money and it's not like he's getting brutalized left and right. Even last night's KO was really a TKO. The high kick clipped him, he staggered, Mirko swarmed with punches and Ishii turned into the ropes.

    I don't understand people's obsession on this website with telling a guy to quit his job. Is Ishii a flop as far as expectations go? Yeah. Is he fighting in the wrong weight class? Probably. Can he squeeze out a few more years of paydays? You bet.

    Improvement = impossible. Especially at heavyweight, where the age cutoff's in your 20's. Another guy who should retire is this Alexey Oleinik guy. I mean, it's 2012, and he's 2-4 in his last six fights, with three knockout losses and a decision loss to freakin' Jeff Monson. He's never gonna make it to the top-15 of heavyweight at his age, and if he's lost against Neil Grove there's no way he's gonna beat even someone like Cro Cop. He won't even beat Jeff Monson in a rematch. Yeah, Oleinik should also hang 'em up.

    Also, if there's any problems Ishii's having, it's not with his weight. He's a very strong, trim 240. If Ishii's supposed to drop down to 205, Cro Cop and Kongo are also probably fighters that have to drop to 205.

    To be fair, he isn't getting brutalized left and right only because he is fighting geriatrics, retired fighters and guys who don't even prepare to fight him. Iron sharpens iron, and you won't get him to be a young lion if he is fighting people on holiday that are also physically not able to compete anymore. He looked like the same fighter that sat on JLB four years ago and got booed outta the joint.

    I don't disagree.

    If a 199yr old Mirko lands his slow-motion headkick, you're struggling.

    Ishii had so much potential, great credentials but he doesn't seem to take MMA seriously t=and losing to MCC at this stage, isn't a great thing. Mirko is past it, and if he puts a beatdown on you, bearing in mind what Brendan Schaub did to him, you're never gonna be elite.

    To face faster guys? Yeah, that makes a lot of sense.
