Yeah it sucks that Asian MMA seems to have folded up and died basically as soon as PRIDE collapsed. When you look at the size of the events they put on, there was clearly an appetite for it. And the Japanese are a fighting culture. I don't understand why there's the lack of Asian fighters. Maybe Japan needs to find Danichi Watiro.
