Jienotsu set for another K-1/MMA bastardization on NYE

Hey, UFC! This is how you do Japan: cross dressing kickboxer versus crazy Kyokushin karateka! Once again Yuichiro ‘Jienotsu’ Nagashima will be competing in a ‘mixed rules’ bout on DREAM’s NYE card. Those of you who still pay attention to that side of the pond will remember last year when Jienotsu wasted Shinya Aoki in what scientists say is the best proof we’ve got that karma does indeed exist.

Now he’ll be facing off against Kyokushin stylist / creepy smile guy Katsunori Kikuno. Like last year, the first round will be K-1 and the second MMA rules. God bless the Japanese for not giving a fuck. And you’ll be blessed too if you watch the fight, since Kikuno is apparently 30% good fortune cat.

    Man it’s sooo good to finally hear something about Japan!  I always love me some Aoki to bring in the New Year.  As awesome as his jaw-crushing last year was, I think it brought nothing but bad luck, so now I have to cheer for him so next year will be better!

    Kikuno versus Nagashima???  Fuck yes, please!  Even if it won’t go more than a round, I’m down.  Now we just need a flyweight woman to fight Bob Sapp and the new year will be complete.
