I just finished submitting my proposal to the International MMA nickname committee to officially change Tatsuya ‘Crusher’ Kawajiri to simply…Killer Kawajiri. The International MMA nickname committee, formally known as The Megaman Robotic Villian naming committee, gave us late 80s/early 90s classics like ‘Cut-Man’, ‘Bubble-Man’, ‘Quick-Man’ and of course the world-renowned ‘Guts Man’. After getting smacked in the face by every elementary school fan for their lack of originality, the committee decided to transition into the world of MMA. Members of the newly formed International MMA nickname committee knew they had to break into the scene with a bang. One night, a member of the committee broke into Burt Reynolds’ upper-eastside loft and stole the actor’s prized mustache. The next day, after hours of surgery, scientists managed to cybernetically implant the mustache on a new fighter soaring through the ranks of MMA. That day, in August 15th 1995 we all witnessed the birth of ‘The Predator’ Don Frye.
Kid Yamamoto is like a demigod in Japan. We don’t even know what demigod means but we heard it in True Blood so we’re assuming it to mean rawesome (or ‘topless’ in Vampire). If you were amped up on 5 hour energy shots and cans of Redbull like us at 4am in the morning, 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. Kid Yamamoto plans to bounce back against Killer Kawajiri (see, it’s already catching on) with a rumored bout slated for Dream 11. With an already ridunkulously stacked card, this bout will be even more reason to call into work ‘sick’ the following morning. [Source]
