Hey, UFC! This is how you do Japan: cross dressing kickboxer versus crazy Kyokushin karateka! Once again Yuichiro ‘Jienotsu’ Nagashima will be competing in a ‘mixed rules’ bout on DREAM’s NYE card. Those of you who still pay attention to that side of the pond will remember last year when Jienotsu wasted Shinya Aoki in what scientists say is the best proof we’ve got that karma does indeed exist.
Now he’ll be facing off against Kyokushin stylist / creepy smile guy Katsunori Kikuno. Like last year, the first round will be K-1 and the second MMA rules. God bless the Japanese for not giving a fuck. And you’ll be blessed too if you watch the fight, since Kikuno is apparently 30% good fortune cat.
