Hirota lost his arm and his funky belt

One of the reasons submissions can be so nasty is you know when it gets down to the snap crackle pop of things, it’s gonna be a long road to recovery. Yesterday during Sengoku’s “We’re Still Alive!” show, Mizuto Hirota (the victim of Aoki’s ‘Keichi Sasahara 2010’ sub on NYE) gave up the promotion’s lightweight belt because of a snapped humerus bone – he won’t be able to fight till September. That’s 9 months on the shelf for taking the Jesus approach to tapping. Lesson to take from this? Next time someone (especially someone like Aoki) gets you in a jointlock, don’t ask WWJD.
