MMA Fighter Challenges People to Punch Him in the Face, Everyone Fails

Yushin Okami: Americans Are Pussies


(Okami: The new Ivan Drago)

Suki MMA has translated Yushin Okami‘s latest blog post, in which the Japanese UFC middleweight contender gives his thoughts on UFC 81:

Minotauro was terrific. That sweep was artistic. I was amazed to see his mental strength and his submission techniques. I found a lot to learn from his fight. I was also surprised to see how quick Sylvia gave up and tapped out though. It seems the American style.

Oh, you bastard. I can only hope that the collective chants of “U.S.A.! U.S.A.!” fill Evan Tanner with enough patriotic fury to wipe the mat with Okami next month. First of all, giving up is not the American style. I think Okami was forgetting something when he wrote this blog post. Namely:

Flag-faced eagle speaks the truth! As Tom Petty has said many times before, you could stand us up at the gates of hell, but we, won’t back down. And by the way, using Tim Sylvia to represent the fighting spirit of our entire nation? Not cool.

Unrelated, but also notable on Suki’s blog: Shinya Aoki recently met with his tights designer, meaning that it won’t be long until his next fight. Yatta!

Hmmm me thinks Okami has little brain. Must have poor memory to forget that the American Franklin didn' tap when he himself almost tore off his arm in a kimura. Then he lost the fight...pretty funny how people forget and make dumb comments about an entire nation. I can think of a few of Japan, but i'll take the high road.

Just keep in mind that things could get lost in translation. Okami didn't really mean anything serious about it, he even later wrote an apology because one of his English agents or some one knew what went around the forums (basically that everyone is taking it in a different light). He was just joking around. Even so, it's pretty funny to see you guys get all railed up about a person's comments. He just basically said, "it seems...." It's his own observation. Who cares.... It's not like he's calling someone a "nigger" or a "redneck". War Okami.

Of course they r, or maybe they r worst ... they r fucking cattles

Look at the quote, did he say Americans are pussies? NO. For goodness sakes it was being "translated". Now shut the hell up. Let the fighting do the talking, if or when it happens. Man, when did this board get to be filled with so much hate and bigotry. Some of these comments have nothing to do with MMA or the fight. Just seems like a bunch of trash talking from people who only watch the event and know nothing about the sport. Show a little respect to fighters who native countries are the original creators of some of the greatest martial arts disciplined that some of you seem to be so obessed with yet show no respect to.

haha, you're a complete dumbass. you represent americans perfectly. They think they're so great when every other country think you guys are complete douches. Just you wait another 100 years when your country gets bombed.
the guy who isn't stupid- February 14, 2008 at 12:55 am
Americans aren't biches? Tell that to your boys from Nam!

Anyway, Yushin is prolly gonna get stomped. In other news, who else is pumped for watching Kimbo dominate another wash-out of a MMA fighter!

Gotta give props to Yushin though, he ain't afriad to talk shit about people in the UFC unlike most of the regular Band Wagon Butt Bandits, although it's Sylvia..so I guess I can't give him tooo much for it.

Tim Sylvia is a good representative of America though, fat, Really white, and stumbling towards a long drawn out loss (or economic failure, whichever)

The comments here were pretty funny though, all the rednecks jumpin up "Eh now der boy ya can't say that bout our americaland" classic. Let's all forget for a minute that the best fighters (in most peoples opinions) are from Brazil and Georgia (or where ever Fedor is from, I can't remember)

Not that I have any love for Japan or anywhere else for that matter, but America is more of an asshole for the earth then the middle east. I mean you guys produce people like Dana, who I think most poeple would agree, is a turd in a toilet bowl just waiting to be flushed.

Lots of love for the Yanks though! I know y'aren't all BWBBs, I'm just an asshole myself. :D

who cares what a Japanese guy says. last time i was in japan half the guys were wearing skin tight shirts with glitter on them and nutt hugger pants. thats why their women love us because our "style" is better. or our cocks either one

"Sense of humor failure" are you tellin me im not the biggest pussy going?
Ed- February 6, 2008 at 3:17 pm
For a website that constantly pokes fun out of/insults almost everything, what an amazing sense of humor failure!
J Schmitt- February 6, 2008 at 2:16 pm
Maybe Okami forgets that he nearly ripped Rich Franklin's arm off with a Kimura and he never tapped???
Justin C- February 6, 2008 at 2:10 pm
Hey Olie, pay attention. Okami isn't fighting Sylvia, he is fighting Tanner!
Dana White- February 6, 2008 at 12:55 pm
Americans are pussies!! and im the biggest pussy going!
Olie- February 6, 2008 at 9:55 am
Haha. I hope Okami kicks Sylvia’s arse. Being a Brit I find that comment quite funny. JDM y0! :D
James- February 6, 2008 at 3:17 am
@ Turdburglar: actually Okami has only been knocked out once, almost 5 years ago. Plus he has never tapped out of a fight, let alone even be submitted. Although this has nothing to do with Americans or Japanese being pussies, because I've seen plenty of American pussies and plenty of Japanese pussies, just as I have seen plenty of Americans and Japanese who refuse to ever tap.
Turdburglar- February 5, 2008 at 11:58 pm
how many times has okami been knocked out. oh that's right alot. go f*ck urself!!!
Cock Blast Chewy- February 5, 2008 at 11:01 pm
Dont worry people. Hes just another BIRD BONED, GLASS JAWED, JELLY HEAD fighter from the "land of the rising dung"....I mean "sun". They can barely take a jab and not be stunned. That asian chick that Emerson fought the other night was pretty tough though.
Turdburglar- February 5, 2008 at 10:07 pm
Take it easy guys, he didnt mean what he said. he still has trouble articulating himself since he got radiation poisoning from Hiroshima......or was it Nagasaki??

Hmmm...
fightfan- February 5, 2008 at 10:00 pm
The UFC thought that Okami had no drawing power before....wait until fans get a hold of this. Okami probably had a couple of fans before this came out, NOW, forget it. I cant wait for him to fight in the STATES
