Jin Mandokoro (52.75kg)

“I don’t know how the fight is going to be like in a cage but I’ll go in there and see how it goes. I’m assuming since there will be no corner I think striking exchanges will be interesting.”

“I know I lost by being overly aggressive, but that’s my style, when I hurt my opponent I go in for the kill and that style won’t change.”

Sora Yamamoto (65.60kg)

画像2: Fight #9 - Tatsuki Saomoto vs. Takashi Matsuba

Takashi Matsuba (56.60kg)

“I trained too hard and now have a huge bruise on my buttcheek. It’s so blue my butt has turned into a smurf butt.”

Fight #10 - SHIAN vs. Uoi Fullswing

画像1: Fight #10 - SHIAN vs. Uoi Fullswing

SHIAN (60.95kg)

“I’m very excited for this fight. My opponent is a hard hitting striker too, there aren’t many opponents who would want to straight up stand and bang so I’m very excited. One of us is going down.”

画像2: Fight #10 - SHIAN vs. Uoi Fullswing

Shoji (65.80kg)

“My opponent is young and can absorb everything he learns, so I think he is a big threat to me.”

“I think he’s a solid striker and he is game to throw down so I think this fight will end in the first round.”

画像2: Fight #14 - Shoji vs. Kyohei Hagiwara

Kyohei Hagiwara (65.95kg)

“I respect my opponent because he’s been through many wars and has the balls and fights like a man. He went head to head against a kickboxing champion in his last fight and won by KO. That itself deserves respect.”
