I was just wondering if he was still planning on fighting again.

Sucks. He was my buddy's favorite fighter around 2006. I wondered what the big deal was, then caught some of those fights in k1 heroes. His ex wife was nails, too.

Shitty, and holy shit he went fast after being diagnosed.
One of the downsides of the Internet is that it allows like-minded people to form communities, and sometimes those communities are stupid.

Shit! He was one of the most talented assholes I’ve ever seen on a ring.

I always liked Genki Sudo and Rumina Sato better though.

KID was a natural heel but he had body language like Mike Tyson at -63 kg. I’ve trained with Moon Wolf before but he’s a very mellow family man.
