    It's not like he greased up with animal fat to slip out of any grappling by his opponent. Sounds like bs but oh well.

    i wonder how they discovered this through "further investigation"

    seeing how quickly he called for and put on his gi afterwards, i'm gonna call shennanigans on Akiyama on this one

    ah, it was caught on pre-fight tape :o



    According to the link (in Japanese), Akiyama has been disqualified in his match against Sakuraba on NYE. The match has been ruled a no-contest. Akiyama will have to forfeit his paycheck, due to Akiyama admitting using "skin cream" (confirmed by pre-fight camera footage). According to Akiyama, he used the "skin cream" on a daily basis for his "dry skin", and that he didn't know that there was problem with using it.

    Akiyama would have won with or without supple skin. Sucks to be him.

    If I put skin cream on my hands the day I work out it makes holding the bar during deadlifts pretty slippery. Depending on the type of skin cream it could have been pretty slick.

    It's funny cause Saku was complaining and after Akiyama won the fight, they just look at his back but Saku pointed that shit on his legs.

    stupid refs.
