And wants to be GSP's apprentice. Smart move for Sexyama! Especially if he wants to fight at UFC Japan. Training under GSP will only make him better but I hope it doesn't make his fighting style less exciting....

"Akiyama, who is 1-3 in the UFC and 14-4 with two no contests overall, considered retirement after getting knocked out by Vitor Belfort last month, but now instead intends to drop down 15 lbs and ideally seek the guidance of divisional king Georges St. Pierre."

I think a great fight for him to prove something in the WW division is to fight Rumble Johnson.

Funny thing is that I wouldnt be surprised if GSP, Hardy et al were about the same in cage weight as Sexy as a MW.

But yeah, a bit too late. Would it help his cardio though? And what about his lack of strategy or generalship?

Best possible thing for him to do. Dropping to 170 alone is great for him. Plus training with the best in the division.....assuming all goes well with the cut he would give most the 170 pounders a lot of trouble. Phone Post

akiyama with a gas tank and real training partners at ww could be serious threat to that div, its a bit of a stretch, but I think he could beat gsp. hard to take down and the best asian mma boxer tight now, imo
