    UFC messed up imo. They should've put this monster on big Fox.

    Master of sport in boxing and hand to hand combat. Him knocking out Musoke will be good television.

    Cause they know they will stand and throw for either three rounds or until one gets dropped and stopped. Catering to the just bleed mass Fox audience.

    Corassani is of swedish nationality.

    Looking forward to seeing tumenov in action again, yeah. Mairbek taisumov and sultan aliev as well. Those north caucasian guys are fierce

    Because the probability of a brutal KO is high for either of the two guys. Also since Akira is Swedish they may want to portray the environment to the TV audience. The higher the stakes the better the TV.

    This. Plus Corassani will have an important role in the UFC-Europe and UFC-MidEast if it ever gets rolling. He speaks something like seven languages and is a rather smart fellow.

    He's not going to have an important role in anything if he keeps getting KTFO'd.

    Why did you pick a fight that he lost to show us, and not his 2 highlight reel KO's afterward? lol

    I'm on the 'Einstein' Relativity War Wagon for sure.

    As for why Corasani is main card? Cuz he's "Swedish" and seems to get random big fights for no other reason than that.

    Why does win/loss have ANYTHING to do with your ability to become part of the business end of the sport? Jorge Grugel, for example. Brian Stann.

    your post made it sound like you were talking from a fighting standpoint. I didn't realize Akira had intentions of retiring and offering his talents to the UFC from a business perspective.

    Time for Akira to retire and help the UFC expand with his many different languages
