GC: In what ways have you prepared for Akiyama, and is there anything new that went on in your camp for this particular fight?

JS: Mostly the same training. I am always trying to tweak things and make some little changes. I trained with [Michael] Bisping for a week, been out in Florida here training with the guys out here in Imperial. No big changes, but I really want to go out there and pressure him and fight and make him tap out.

GC: So you’re going to be looking for a submission?

JS: Yeah, of course. If something else comes, of course, I’ll take it. But I’m a submission fighter, so I would love to go out there and tap him.

GC: Now you describe that style as “American Jiu-Jitsu,” could you go into further detail as to why you call it that?

JS: Yeah, well I never train with a G.I., so my style is more of a mix between Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and American wrestling. I took the two and kind of fused them. There are a lot of guys who have done both, but I have really mixed the two and turned it into one thing, which is kind of an American Jiu-Jitsu.

Terrible matchmaking this fight.

Akiyama returning to Japan for first time in 4 years lost his last three fights. They decide to match him against a top 5 WW who will likely just grind him out.

Apparently losing to Chris Leben then gets you fights with Bisping, Vitor and Shields.

Thats right, looks like Shields by layandprayitsu then. Do you think they will be liable to stand it up quicker over there though?!

I highly doubt Shields is top 5. The guy is 1-2 in the UFC....

With losses to GSP and a young stud in Ellenberger. If hes not top 5 right now, hes pretty close.

There is a lot of interesting matchups in UFC for him, Fitch, Kos, Story, Hendricks. He should have no problem outwrestling Akiyama to an decision

JS: " ( talking about Carlos beating Diaz ) I don’t know how you’re going to win running
backwards, throwing leg kicks.
I mean, you can argue Condit landed a few more strikes, but the majority of those were
tiny little leg kicks."


Look at your ability to dry hump people ! If you were to fight Fitch in the UFC, the winner
would be announced " and the winner by way of his opponent dying of natural causes is.....)

Landing strikes wins. Look how many times you landed a takedown and layed on an opponent.
I Would hope my training partner could stay SOBER and make our camp look good too against someone who handed me my ass ! You are 1-2 in the UFC. This isn't Strikeforce, Diaz isn't a God, and you got spoonfed a title shot you didn't deserve. Don't hate on GSP just because you couldn't beat him and your boy Nick can't stay sober and face him... No other way ending this besides saying I love MMA and hate the Gracies. And I have been a fan since UFC 1 !

The way they've matched up Akiyama has been very odd. Don't know if they expected big things from him then? Maybe win against a big name and get into title contention. Go to Japan and profit.
If he loses, well he's still marketable in the asian market which doesn't care as much for fighter's record.
