In the “long overdue” category, it looks like Kawajiri will finally take his talents to the Octagon. The 35-year old is on a five-fight winning streak and should inject some energy into the featherweight division. He’s also one of the few bona fide Japanese stars out there so that in itself makes his presence on the roster worthwhile. For those who aren’t familiar with “Crusher”, he holds an overall record of 32-7-1 with 21 finishes and past success against Joachim Hansen, Michihiro Omigawa, Yves Edwards, Gesias Cavalcante, and Josh Thomson.
Wednesday has rolled around again and, as expected, the 10-Point Must is back! Every week I’ll give my thoughts on ten topics from the past seven days with hopes the readership will contribute their takes as well in the Comments section. This time around, subjects range from Diego Sanchez targeting Nate Diaz to Mike Tyson vs. Royce Gracie to the Chael Sonnen-Wanderlei Silva rivalry moving to TUF Brasil and much more in-between!
