In 2014 JMMA is nearly nonexistent. It’s a shame but that’s just how the climate is, people just don’t care about MMA like they used to at a certain point in time. It’s sad but at least there’s always pro wrestling and while pro wrestling in Japan isn’t as healthy as it once was, it’s still alive and kicking.
Wrestle Kingdom 9 is almost upon us and it will feature many staples of the wrestling and MMA world. For one good ole’ JR will be on commentary with Matt Striker. Now from the MMA world, we’ll have The Mad Dog Wrestling Katsuyori Shibata in a tag team title bout. Then of course, the legendary Kazushi Sakuraba will face off vs. the equally as legendary Minoru Suzuki. Guys, I know some of you may not like wrestling but if you like MMA, you will like this match, just trust me on this. This is going to be on PPV in the states and it’s going to be the first PPV that I purchase from my house in ages.
