Japanese fans are deeply appreciated in mixed martial arts for their knowledge of the sport and respectful attitude. Where it is not unheard of for MMA fans to shout fag when a fighter uses Guard for more than a few seconds, the same fighter can draw a gasp from the Japanese crowd for an artful set up.
There is of course always and exception that proves the rule. Mark Hunt has a fan in Japan, Hassy 'Xjp' Nishikawa, with a fawning Facebook page so over the top it cannot be accurately described, and must simply be seen.
Thanks to MiddleEasy for the find.
At first, thanks for ur greatful fight wiz Bigfoot.
I was very excited. HUNT, u're real Superman.
But, I knew from ur tweet...u're broken hand.

Hassy meeting Hunt
@markhunt1974 When you come back to Japan and I can meet you,...I would like to walk along the beach together....
mark richard hunt @markhunt1974
@Tak_Nishikawa thissss guyyy bro I am married
Read entire Facebook...
Even after all that, North American fans still have a lot to learn from Japanese fans. As creepy as Hassy is, he still a lot more entertaining than a pack of bald drunks shouting "faggot" at the cage...
