Satoshi Ishii defeats Jeff Monson in M-1 main event

Satoshi Ishii defeats Jeff Monson in M-1 main event

Under the guise of a very busy fight weekend (OneFC and UFC), M-1 Global held what would otherwise be considered big, for M-1 standards, with Satoshi Ishii and Jeff Monson meeting in the main event.

Ishii proved to be far too much for the decorated grappler in Monson, showing how effective olympic caliber judo can be in mixed martial arts.  Using multiple throws, Ishii dominated the ground game, and the clinch game, and did enough on his feet to secure a majority decision over Monson.

Ishii now looks to his fight with Mirko Cro Cop, a fight that is slated to take place at Antonio Inoki’s annual Inoki Bom Ba Ya event.  Ishii, who has been streaking (six wins in a row) since losing to Fedor in 2011, is likely nearing a deal with a large promotion, possibly even the UFC, where he was set to make his debut at the onset of his career until he signed with World Victory Road.


Kyoji Horiguchi remains Japan’s hottest prospect, wins UFC debut

Kyoji Horiguchi remains Japan’s hottest prospect, wins UFC debut

When Kyoji Horiguchi was coming up in the Shooto organization, we touted him as the next big thing to come out of Japan.  Readers were unaware who this kid was (yes he was a teenager at the time), yet he quickly made himself a staple amongst Japanophile’s around the world.

Horiguchi had what could be seen as a career defining fight (thus far) Saturday night at UFC 166 as he proved to the world that – yes – the hype is real.

Horiguchi was in trouble earlier with Dustin Pague, a submission fighter, who scrambled hastily to back control and sunk in the beginnings of a rear naked choke.  Horiguchi remained reticent, holding off the clasping hand while Pague had his right hand deep around Horiguchi’s neck.  Pague’s legs would eventually give after having them clamped strongly around the Japanese fighter’s mid section, which opened Pague up to strikes.  The round ended with Horiguchi in Pagues halfguard, and quite likely in Pague’s favor.

Round two saw a much relaxed Horiguchi begin to implement his karate game, flying in with slick combos, landing a huge right that floored Pague and spelled what was the beginning of the end.  Horiguchi was perfectly comfortable in Pague’s guard and opted to finish the fight in said position, raining down a violent barrage of punches that saw Pague’s head bouncing off the canvas and Horiguchi victorious.

With little hope for Japanese fighters succeeding in the UFC, Horiguchi could be the first talent in a long while that has a chance to compete in the upper ranks of the division.  Showing his ability to fend of submissions as well as his ability to take a punch, Horiguchi could be a serious threat to those in the middle of the division and eventually the top of the division, in due time.

Ryo Chonan retires as a champion, our salute to one of Japan’s greatest fighters

Ryo Chonan retires as a champion, our salute to one of Japan’s greatest fighters

In traditional Japanese combat sports, a fighter will take one last bout against a much stronger, almost overwhelmingly tougher opponent, and fall gracefully on his sword in his last battle.  Ryo Chonan defied this tradition Sunday, and instead used said sword to conquer his final opponent, DEEP 170-lb champion Dan Hornbuckle.

In more bouts than can be remembered, fighters have faced talent far and above their skill set, and for a reason unbeknownst to us, they prefer to be beaten to a pulp in their final fight.  Ryo Chonan took a title fight for his final hurrah in the ring and made the most of it.

Chonan was able to grind out a unanimous decision victory, capturing the championship before retiring in front of a packed Korakuen Hall in Tokyo Japan.  The event, entitled DEEP Tribe Tokyo FIGHT, was co-promoted with Chonan’s Tribe Tokyo gym, which has become the most powerful mixed martial arts training facility in Japan since it opened.

Chonan has had one of the most decorated careers of any Japanese fighter.  In what was his most memorable fight, Chonan submitted P4P great Anderson Silva with an out of nowhere leg lock during his time in Pride.  When PrideFC fell, Chonan headed stateside to the UFC and was able to win a fight in the octagon, albeit losing three, before heading back to Japan.

Chonan will continue as a name in the sport, only now as a coach, one that has seen all there is to see in combat sports, one that will provide fighters with an encyclopedia of knowledge and experience.

We salute you, Chonan…

Aoki victory after dirty fight from Cody Stephens

Aoki victory after dirty fight from Cody Stephens

Shinya Aoki emerged victorious from his first fight at featherweight Friday evening before a packed Singapore Indoor Stadium audience.

Aoki suffered a violent low-blow just minutes into the first round which set the stage for the fight.  Shifting from his typical aggressive nature, the blow kept the champion in pain for the entire fight.  However, Shinya continued on.

Just as he was able to continue, and somewhat proceed with the pain from the low blow, Aoki was struck in the back of the spine by Stephens, which penalized the American and again set Aoki back.  Aoki continued to dominate the clinch and ground game, proving that the loss of strength due to the drop to 145-lbs was not a factor.

As with all new endeavors, Aoki’s foray into the 145-lb mix will likely prove to be a successful one.  Aoki was extremely undersized at 155, with the likes of fighters such as Eddie Alvarez and Michael Chandler far outweighing him.  Fighting on sheer skill and ability, Aoki – like Frankie Edgar – was able to make an extremely successful career at lightweight and even crept up to welterweight a time or two.

The win will likely set the stage for a higher profile fight that could see Aoki either defend his lightweight title or possibly compete for the featherweight title..  A fight with newly crowned champion Bibiano Fernandes is likely still down the road at some point.
