Outside of the Mark Hunt vs Roy Nelson main event, the most compelling matchup at this Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 52 event in Saitama might be Miesha Tate vs. Rin Nakai — a meeting between an American former title contender and an undefeated Japanese mythical creature best known for semi-nude baking. The oddsmakers have Tate (rightly) pegged as a strong -240 favorite, but with the burly Nakai enjoying home-field advantage, it’s hard to count her out completely.
This “Fighting Queens” promo gives us a closer look at Nakai’s backstory, judo prowess, and training environment, and reveals her as a humble competitor who welcomes the challenge of representing Japanese women in the Octagon. As her trainer Fumio Usami puts it: “In order to make MMA really take off in Japan, I think a Japanese fighter needs to win. I think it’s important that Rin Nakai wins.”
Also, some random pervy dude takes photos of Miesha Tate and her friend at a shrine or something. Check it out.Read More DIGG THIS
