UFC 100

Who ever thought there’d be a UFC 2, let alone 100!? 

Anyways, UFC 100 is taking place this Saturday and will feature one of the biggest and best fight cards – if not the best – ever.  So big in fact that it doesn’t even need a title; or maybe Dana ran out of them.

UFC 100 will be stacked with future hall of famer’s Frank Mir, Georges “Rush” St-Pierre, Dan “Hendo” Henderson and possibly Brock “Who Needs Technique?” Lesnar.  Yes, the MMA Gods do have a sense of humor.

Less known, but no less exciting, is the UFC debut of Judo ace Yoshihiro Akiyama.  No stranger to Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), Akiyama has made a name for himself in Japan’s K-1 circuit where he holds a record of 12 wins, one loss and 2 no contest; albeit not without controversy.  It seems that a combination of dipping into the Oil of Olay – no doubt giving him an ageless appearance – and mom using too much fabric softener on the gi (hate when that happens) has plagued Akiyama and his opponents; especially those trying to get a hold of him.  Hopefully we’ve seen the last of these ‘Slipperyama’ tactics.

Speaking of monikers – and no, I don’t make this s@%t up – is Akiyama’s pseudonym; that of Yoshihiro “Sexyama” Akiyama.  Now if that doesn’t put the fear into you, nothing will.  He’ll be taking on Alan “The Talent” Belcher whose MMA record speaks for itself at 14 wins and 5 losses (2 by decision). 

And just so Akiyama doesn’t feel so all alone in his UFC debut is the entry of fellow Judoka Dong Hyun Kim who holds an MMA record of 11 wins and no losses.  Fighting Kim will be Canadian submission expert TJ “No Gimmick” Grant, who holds an MMA record of 14 wins (12 by submission) and 2 losses.

UFC 100 may just live up to the hype this time around.  Stay tuned…
