In Japan, more money is spent on the porn industry than their entire country’s military. That’s actually a fact. Even military secrets get leaked because officers can’t help but exchange porn while on duty. If you’re into porn, Japan is definitely the place to be. You don’t even need money in your day to day life; you can swap a couple of XXX DVDs to pay for the sushi that arrives on your conveyor belt and your cashier will go home happier than any monetary charity you slip into the tip jar by the register. While some people will question if valuing porn is as important as a solid military, most of the people reading this tune the Japanese political stuff out and focus on MMA, and that’s what we’ll try to do in the remainder of this article. In Japanese MMA, your wins and losses mean a lot less to fans than they do in the UFC; and that’s a good thing. Most of the fan favorite fighters competing in the UFC today still have their origins rooted from the PRIDE FC competitions where fighters were treated like demi-gods. Being bummed over a loss is never as bad as it seems when a library of porn awaits you at your hotel. Not sure if that is how Wanderlei Silva gets over his ‘less-than-perfect’ performances, but we’d like to think soft-core videos can calm you down and give you what you need to regroup for a fight against Cung Le at UFC 139.
No loss is too hard to overcome when you’re the Axe Murder, and as he puts together his game-plan for defeating MMA’s San Shou wizard, just be thankful we’ll get to hear “Sandstorm” at least once more on November 19th.
