Well, it seems like those whacky japanese have done it again. It seems like everytime I watch K-1 Hero's there's some sort of pro-wrestling, Montreal job, type of thing going on. From waaaay early stoppages, to delayed "is your face caving in already?"one. Norifumi Yamamoto "beating" Genki Sudo, Smirnovas beating the stuffing out of Sakuraba and the ER stopping the fight to resuscitate the Gracie Hunter...and don't make me talk about those mammoth fights, between fat ass sumo wrestlers and steroid pumped football players.
Keeping with the tradition, the 31st of December fight between Sakuraba and Akiyama had its share of controversy and "drama" with Akyama beating the shxx out of Sakuraba and Saku bitching and moaning about Akyama being oiled or something.
Well, I saw the fight and I have to say that, oil or no oil, the outcome would have been pretty much the same. Saku is now a shadow of his former self and being diagnosed with brain lesions doesn't actually make a fighter any better. Akyama is stronger, faster, skilled and YOUNGER! And he's becoming the posterboy for Hero's which means that they'll carry his ass for the win, everytime that it's needed (can you spell Taiei Kin?).
The soap opera continues and now Fight Entertainment Group says the fight was a no contest, Akyama wasn't oiled but moisturized, honest mistake on his part, they say, Saku is still getting old and Japanese still hate koreans!
Akyama - Moisturizer only after the fight? Ok baby? And keeping on fighting good!
Sakuraba- Hang your gloves, please!! Do it for the sake of our colective memory. Everytime I want to remember a fight of his I can only visualize the beating he took out of Snirnovas, instead of the incredible fights he had in the past.
Fight Entertainment Group- Let the fighters fight! PLease, stop being WWE and actually leave the fighting to the athletes. If they lose it's because they suck or the other guy was better. Stop tarnishing japanese mma with those "in your face" highway robberies.
Japanese fans - Stop hating on Akyama cause he's Korean:angry7:
