Watch This UFC 144 Preview and Get Hyped for the Octagon’s Return to Japan


(Video courtesy of Sapo/IronForgesIron)

If you weren’t excited about the next major Zuffa show on February 25 before, this 10-minute extended preview should get you pumped for the first UFC show in Japan.

You know the card for UFC 144 is good when Yushin Okami, “Kid” Yamamoto and Hatsu Hioki are on the prelims. The card is stacked. Edgar versus Bendo will be a fast-paced chess match, Rampage versus Bader should be a slugfest, Hunt versus Kongo will be a K-1 bout in a cage and Pettis versus Lauzon is an interesting clash of styles. What’s not to like about this event?

Considering that there will only be one event  between this event and the one in Sweden on April 14, it’s a good thing the card isn’t a dud, otherwise we might have all said, “I’m not going to accept this as a card. I think I’m done with this MMA stuff; I don’t think they can pay me enough to do this again.”

If only they would bring in the ramp and have crazy PRIDE lady make a guest spot, JMMA fans’ wet dream would be complete.

Why do they only have one Asian fighter on the main card?

That fucking video format sucks. No matter what computer I use -- at work, at home, at a friend's house -- it always gives me problems with stopping and loading at random points. Fucking annoying as hell.

Somehow I get the feeling this won't be like the UFC in Brazil where almost all the Brazilians won.
