Genki Sudo has never receded from the spotlight in Japan after his untimely retirement from fighting at the ripe age of 28.

A veteran of Pancrase, UFC and K-1 Hero’s and world-class eccentric, Sudo has become renowned for his grappling prowess, unorthodox fighting style, and extravagant choreographed ring entrance during his 21-fight career. On the heel of his victory over current WEC bantamweight, Damacio Page, at K-1 Premium 2006 Dynamite! — he announced his retirement from fighting, citing his bout with a nagging neck injury.

Since then, he has achieved a remarkable metamorphosis from a fighter to author, actor, TV personality and MMA commentator. Having published eight books and appeared in several movies and dozens of Japanese TV shows, Sudo apparently has not had enough of stretching his schedule and capacity to max.

He has found yet another means to channel his creative energy, seen here after the jump.

That was wierdly cool. Man's a fucking pimp.

He is missed from MMA. Awesome career, especially considering his first fight was a loss to Tiki.

I'm not a fan of Japanese music, but Genki is most definitely the fucking man.

The reaction from the crowd at my house he got back when he made his UFC debut was insane.
