I said in my blog that NYE events were tremendous. Now I would say the fact that Yarennoka turned over the result was a disgrace. It was surprising for me to know that the decision a referee made was overturned easily and the way this event contracted with fighters, not by written but verbal agreement.
Is there any meaning for Yarennoka to contract 2 fights? I was at a loss when I first heard of this. Misaki has been criticized by sponsors because he announced to fight in Sengoku before completing the contract with Yarennoka. FEG announced that Japanese MMA events have to stand together and work together. Then, why aren't they in alliance with Sengoku as well?
I fight in the UFC now and should not say anything about events in Japan, but I think MMA events in Japan are now miserable. All the great fights I and many fans watched on NYE were spoiled by event producers.
Even so, I`m going my way.
