Hey Hamu. Hope all is well on your side! Yip, Mirko said people should support Koizumi and the LDP. Dunno why

Perhaps it has something to do with that handshaking session a few years ago between these two master politicians. Here is my hurried translation of Mirko's comments for non-Japanese readers. The rest of the statement just makes the last sentence seem all the more bizarre. "Today I was completely defeated (kanpai). "My opponent thoroughly studied my striking patterns and beat me standing. Moreover, although I was totally prepared for this fight, for some reason my stamina left me. "It was expected that I would be beaten up [at this point], but the reason why this didn't happen was the ground-fighting. My ground technique enabled me to carry the fight to a decision even though I was losing. "There are days like this sometimes. "At any rate, I plan on rebuilding myself from square one. The theme of the next PRIDE is 'Starting Over,' which I find to be rather ironic [or sardonic]. Still, it fits me perfectly. "I apologize to all the fans who supported me. After exhaustively examining the reasons why I lost this time, I will be back. Please look forward to my return. "I may have lost, but I ask everyone to go to the polls [on September 11] and support Prime Minister Koizumi."
