    james thompson has an awesome build, but he's still considered a borderline freakshow fighter

    he trained with them for a little bit awhile ago to supplement his skills, but he normally trains in japan i believe

    he went atop of mount fuji to train once and ended up getting pretty sick from the altitude :rofl: completely an eccentric dumbass :rofl:

    Theres something about Minowa that I don't like. His fucking mullet/beard makes me cringe... I don't like his style either. (although its gone now)

    he's cocky, disrespectful and sucks like mad on the ground. and to think that he was complaining about when they didn't let him fight in the LW ladder but only as an alternative :ugh:

    i'm confident that i could even submit him

    yeah, i can see that nakamura is up and coming and is very talented...he's still young too. but i ♥ kondo, so i'm somewhat rooting for him :hs:

    much rather see Baroni vs Saku, but I guess Minowa deserves the shot more.
