This article should be prefaced with a giant ‘BEEP’. Most of you won’t understand that reference, so instead, I’ll just say that all of you kids out there should aspire to be Sexyama when you grow up. If you don’t start when you’re young, you’ll grow up to be a guy locked inside a cubicle for 33% of the day and will never be able to leisurely foil a restaurant robbery.
When your name begins with ‘Sex’, you’re almost guaranteed a blitzkrieg of drunken phone calls on a Friday night. If Sexyama was a Hot Pocket, he would be stuffed with a blend of frozen hotness that can only be fully realized when placed in the microwave for two minutes. In this case, Akiyama’s sex appeal does not manifest into some force-field entirely localized in his lower back. If it did, we would not have to worry about Sexyama’s herniated disc problems that he’s having going into UFC 133. Here’s a rough translation from MFight.co.kr regarding Akiyama’s physical condition.
Akiyama questions a sudden back injury that has brought disruption to the training schedule. Choo through the seven days on his blog, “injured lower back during training. Too painful and I’m annoyed with myself. Priori back side and was trained to care is not good. Thirty-six year. The influence of age, why? “he announced the news of injuries.
In the article, it also states that Sexyama pulling out of his UFC 128 fight with Nate Marquardt was due in part to the tragedy in Japan and because his lower herniated disc was deteriorating. As of now, it appears that Sexyama still plans on going through with his bout against Vitor Belfort at UFC 133. Now we should all collectively cross our fingers to ensure this remains true. [Source]
