Oh my God, Minowaman DESTROYED an opponent's leg last weekend

Oh my God, Minowaman DESTROYED an opponent's leg last weekend

You don't face the red wrestling trunks (not a Speedo) of Minowaman as a lengthy gaijin and expect to get away with it. What were you thinking, going in there against a man who has faced the most consistently badass opponents across 4-7 weight classes in all of human history? The internet is ablaze with how much Bruce Lee actually mattered to MMA when we have a modern masterpiece of a human being in front of us, still fighting for honor and a few yen like a mulleted ronin. 

Minowaman is a treasure, and whenever we get up in arms about how badass Paul Harris is with his leg locks, we conveniently forget that Paul Harris was not a Super Hulk Tournament winner. 

Saturday night, in what would be his 102nd pro fight, Minowaman took Goran Jettingsgrad's leg and twisted it like a Twizzler being forced into a fat kid's maw. Watch it happen. Be disgusted.

Never forget that Minowaman has a PERFECT UFC record.

He acted like he didn't even know legs could come apart like that. "They not making gaijins like they used to, :sigh: "

A while ago, I thought I'd eventually get used to seeing shit like that....but it seems to only get worse for me every time.

Same here. I knew what was coming, but I still cringe. And I feel soooo bad for the guy. Grappling is the worst. I can see a guy get KO'd and not give a shit, but when bones get broken and ligaments get torn it's another story.

...and the entire time, you knew exactly what submission was being setup. Even the person shooting the video called it 20 seconds before it was locked in. I wouldn't wish that result on anybody....well , except for some of the trolls on this website.

That was NASTY!

Who was he fighting? Don't want to sound like a dick, but the guy looked VERY inexperienced both standing and on the ground. Like he hasn't even done that much sparring before either. The guy has long legs but doesn't know how to utilize them. Plus his standup was horrible looking.

This is a great fight to watch for amateurs, what NOT to do.
+1 # Ouch! 2014-04-07 18:49
Watch it again. Man that was hard to watch. He was waving his hands around like, "I'm gonna hit you, I'm gonna hit you, come here, I'm gonna hit you."

Where are the set-ups dude? Why are you telegraphing your every move? Especially when Minowa was clearly showing that he wasn't going to strike and was going to take him down.

Nerves, maybe. Clearly this chap needs some MMA sparring practice at the very least.

I agree. Good eye. This kid takes his first pro fight against a dude that has 90+ pro fights! Bad idea!

I hope he recovers and builds on it. I hate to see this type of stuff because it could have been prevented by a good coach.

Unless you're a complete stud, bad career move to take a 1st fight against guys that have close to 100 career fights, especially in Japan.

In Japan, they won't show you pity. For example, old school guys like Inoki love this shit. They love showing who is "master." Inoki probably handpicked this fight.

Old school style martial arts in Japan were hardcore. They'd beat the shit out of the newbie and show no mercy. Only the crazy would show up the next day, and that's what they wanted.

My ex-girlfriend was a kendo champion, she has told me stories about the beating kids would get and none called it "abuse."

Did he do it on purpose or was it just a fluke injury?
-2 # jjdnb 2014-04-08 13:05
2 thumbs down for asking a question?? LOL

Pshht its as if you guys forgot Shinya Aoki still exists.

The thing that bothers me is that Minowa didnt just went for the submission...He wanted to destroy this guy that really didnt belong in the ring. Says alot about a person taking a fight with a novice fighter. Integrity issues.....I would love to see Paul harris and this douche in the ring with each other....

KARMA< that would be a GREAT fight…something I think BOTH men would definitely agree to! Leg lock specialists are a different breed of fighters, I don`t think they mean to hurt their opponents, but they DO EXPECT their opponents to tap IMMEDIATELY! Referees should watch leg lock artists more closely than other guys, refs should be consulted before fights - to stop the fight quickly.
