Kid Yamamoto is a demigod in Japan. I’m not even fully sure what demigod means, but I heard it True Blood so I’m assuming it means ‘filled with amazing’ (or ‘topless’ in Vampire). If you were amped up on 5 hour energy shots and cans of Redbull like us at 4:10am on May 26th 2009, then you witnessed quite possibly the greatest upset in MMA history. Joe Warren, a guy from Portland with a record of 1-0, defeated one of the biggest names in MMA serving Yamamoto his first loss in seven years. A few months after his loss, Kid Yamamoto issued a press release announcing that he has split with his really, really hot wife and that it was all his fault (guy must be related to me). In the press release, he admits that ‘hanging out with his friends’ was one cause of the divorce. Kid Yamamoto also stated that he played with his kids too much and was unable to properly educate them. Basically, Kid Yamamoto sounds like every guy that’s reading this. Hot chick gets pissed off at a dude for being a dude. It’s like the plot of a movie that would star Jude Law.
Kid tried to bounce back from his Joe Warren loss by taking on Kanehara at Dynamite!! 2009. After three rounds of essentially defending himself, Yamamoto racked up his third career loss. Bummer. At Dream 14, Yamamoto finally realized that at one point in time, he was considered the pound-for-pound greatest fighter in MMA, and defeated Federico Lopez with a brutal knockout in the first round. Within months, Dana White signed Yamamoto to make his bantamweight debut at UFC 126 against Demetrious Johnson and now you can watch the fight free of charge on UFC’s Facebook page. Rejoice for free MMA and for the debut of Krazy Bee, a second cousin of the Wu-Tang Killa Bees family. [Source]
