Of course there are the legends like Saku, Carl Uno, and Gomi. But is there another Asian fighter who has been able to beat top prospects in the division in the UFC the way TKZ has? He could be on his way to Asian GOAT.

Okami has a more impressive resume of names to be successful in the UFC.

 

outside Of the UFC I think people forget how great Aoki was & he was considered number one at one point.

That long mandatory military layoff really hurt us from seeing his true potential I believe. But he’ll always be one of my favorites

Aoki is still one of my all time favorites, I have to agree with Okami having the better resume. Totally forgot about him.

Hamasaki and Megumi Fujii are the two best AW females in MMA history.

Kid Yamamoto was undefeated for 7 years besides one cut stoppage in a 30 second fight that got called an L. He was amazing.

Kid beat Royler, Uno, Sudo, Miyata, Bibiano, and Yahya all in a row. Finished 5/6 of them.

Prime Kid was special.

Zombie is a special talent imo. You stick him in the mix in Pride with a prime Gomi it's a toss up, though. Gomi has the better wrestling, but Zombie has a better sub game. I'd imagine that fight plays out on the feet, but I could see either man catching eachother.

Genki Sudo, Kid Yamamoto and Mach Saurai leap to mind

That guy is a troll.

He has a Haku thread and is saying Kane the WWE guy is able to kill everyone in UFC.

Fighting in general? Its hard to top the accomplishments of Manny Pacquaio. MMA? Sakuraba is a first ballot hall of famer. TKZ is one of my favorite fighters to watch, but he’s not on that level. A hall of famer nonetheless in my opinion though
