MMA in Japan

In Japan, MMA and kickboxing are popular sports that are heavily covered by the media. But English-speaking fight fans do not have access to all this information. Some Americans try to report news from Japan, but they have language problems sometimes or they are not telling all sides of the story. This blog will give fans some of those news reports, and some observations too.


Kameda Koki title defense postponed

This is not an MMA story, but Kameda Koki, the controversial champion of the WBA light flyweight class, will not defend his title as scheduled on October 18. Kameda was injured above his left eye during sparring. Kyoei Gym will make an official announcement later on Monday.

The fight would have been a rematch between Kameda and Juan Jose Landaeta.

    i know you've said that your blog is not meant to be a news site but thanks for getting us this information so quickly. i am sure that will report it in a few hours and then claim to be the first to "break" the story as they always do.

    Nick and I do not write news blog so "scoop" or first report, that is not my intent. So there is no reason for comparing this site to the fight opinion, etc. If you need like the news flash and cannot read Japanese, fight opinion is not bad site, also complete vale tudo access blog is good. There are useful links on our blog front page.
