    Right now he's 0-2 but he almost submitted Shinya Aoki and Ishida. Has an extremely advanced groundgame even for a judo fighter. This guy could probably submit half the UFC LW division and unlike most Japanese fighters, he has the size to back it up.

    I actually really like that setup to the armbar, he was trying to do the same to Ishida with that setup and was getting quite close. But yeah, I agree with you, no body knows this guy but he gave some of the top LW's a hard fucking time. Dong Sik said he was one of the strongest guys he's trained with, even Ishida commented on his fighting spirit after the fight and felt very disappointed in himself because he was not able to perform like he usually does.

    yeah I bet Aoki thought he was getting a gimme win over some random Judo guy and was thinking what the fuck when he got caught in that setup

    Well you guys know him, but mainstream MMA doesnt.

    Pawel Nastula. If he was 10 years younger he would be top 5 for sure.

    Word, he also got possibly THE worst debut setup in MMA history.
    Nogueira, Barnett and Aleksander. No gimmies in those fights, thats for damn sure.

    I don't know if mentioning fighters that have fought in PRIDE/DREAM and UFC on televised cards could really be "unknown"?

    I've heard a lot about Cain Velasquez (future of the heavies etc etc). We'll see how well he goes this weekend. He's with a couple of top wrestlers transitioning to MMA early (like Hendricks, Rosholt etc) that might go on to become very well known.
