    Yeah I can't tell if this is real or a joke since it only came on my radar today. Then again I don't follow as much mixed martial arts as I used to. As far as I can tell they are still team mates or stable mates and Nakamura continues to train under Yoshida. This is apparently Yoshida's retirement fight so he's going to fight......his student Nakamura. Yoshida is a 1992 Olympic judo gold medalist and Japanese MMA superstar. Older mixed martial arts fans will recognize these two names from Pride Fighting Championship's better days as black belt judoka that weren't afraid to let the fists fly.


    Older mixed martial arts fans will also likely pop an eyebrow and rub their eyes before reading again, yes that card says Enson "Yamato Damashi" Inoue. Enson and his brother Egan are older fighters who fought in the mid-nighties to early 2000's. Both were know for their 'never tap' all out style and fire brand personalities. Enson has not fought since 2004.

    Dennis Kang was rumoured to be on the card as well but is out due to injury.

    It's real as far as I know.

    HAMMER card.

    I am wincing from the anticipation.

    Yoshida, Nakamura, Masvidal, Inoue, Chonan, Mori.

    To me, this is like an Ali fight.

    In actuality what has been posted may be more correctly attributed to the previous poster, rather than Japanese MMA.

    Jorge Masvidal vs. Naoyuki Kotani
    Ryo Chonan vs. Jung Hwan Cha
    Enson Inoue vs. Antz Nansen
    Daisuke Nakamura vs. Ganjo Tentsuku

    Seigo Mizuguchi vs. Seiryu Seiryu
    Ryosuke Komori vs. Takumi Murata

    Everything I've heard indicates that both Yoshida and Nakamura are pumped for this and training pretty hard to win. Nakamura's said that he wants to KO Yoshida, and I remember he said similar things years ago too. That could be a decent fight, but I think Yoshida will be too big and probably more skilled than Nakamura.

    I think Inoue's going to be too old, and he's facing a good striker. Still, this could be interesting.

    Omigawa has looked like a beast recently, and I think he's going to continue that here.

    Overall, this looks like it should be an entertaining card, IMO.
