Wise move. The 2021 Japanese Olympics is going to be a flop anyway.

5 ( +8 / -3 )

Smart move. After the Superspreader Olympics, people will have no respect for medalists and blame japan for spreading the pandemic.

Good for her! I wish her continued success!

Japan MMA and the Japanese Olympic associations pays squat! Not everyone is built to start a second career on variety J TV shows saying "oishii" or "umai" 6 times and hour.

However, if she is serious then she needs to move to the US to receive quality training. Hell, moving to another asian country would provide higher quality mma training than Japan.

The Japan mma market is one of the lowest tiers, and they allow performance enhancing drugs, and it is still pathetic. The same could be said for their bjj scene.

I wish her the best! Japan and the UFC have a long relationship going back to the "Dream Stage Entertainment" era that was eventually bought out by Zuffa. Hopefully we will see a resurgence of the sport with more Japanese fighters in the UFC.

BS. Where is your evidence? You are asserting something and have no evidence to prove it. You are totally talking about pre-Unified rules of MMA and clearly have no idea what measures are in place in JMMA now.

LOL! You obviously do not know the meaning of irony going by your name. Your entire post is filled logical fallacies and assumptions!

Why don't you actually prove me wrong with some real evidence!
