    I heard rumours before that he may be UFC bound. So far there isn't any good Japanese representation in the UFC, all the Jap fighters they have brought over have been beaten. Kotani, K-Taro, Mishima, etc.

    I forgot about those guys for some reason. I still want to see Akira stacked up against some talent.
     
  3. They should bring over Kotetsu Boku. I haven't seen him fight because even I don't bother with the GCM/DOG shows, but he has experience throwing bows in the cage, a great record, and Breen tells me his elbows are super nasty.

    I haven't heard his show, but I've noticed his articles pop up on Sherdog. He blows the rest of the Sherdog guys out of the water with the professional quality of his articles - though I guess that's not saying much. Sherdog needs more journalists like him and Josh Gross.

    Jordan Breen knows a lot but he needs to take a course in broadcast journalism or something, he's hard to listen to
     
  8. posts as "My Sex Is Artsy" on the sherdog forums. He's basically a superfan that watches like every event ever, and is very knowledgeable about the sport. He has written for sherdog for a while, and is generally better at it than the rest of their staff.

    He was on a shortlist of "top people qualified to write about MMA in the mainstream press" as well.

    I respect his knowledge, I just said he knows a lot, anyone can admit that the show suffers a bit because Breen talks like his mind is all over the place

  12. The funny thing is, if you talk to breen online, he's so fucking offensive and hilarious. He uses ethnic slurs for like any race, and shits on all of the fighters.


    "Oh yeah, Rog Nog has always licked balls, I'm not surprised that Coon KO'd his ugly ass."

    "Barnett can't wrestle for shit because his nigger wife keeps feeding him tastycakes."

    "Hunt is a worthless ball of lard, and always has been."

    kikuchi solid in MMA...decent in everything...but exceptional at nothing...kind of like nate quarry or others...those kind of fighters bore me...at least with aoki he has that one distinct strength that stands out from the rest...much more fun to watch
