I think it's time for Akiyama to get his walking papers.
I was thinking the same before the Shields fight, but he seemed to preform alot better at WW. I think he's earned another fight.
Dude has yet to have a tune up fight in the UFC. He came over and immediately was up against the wolves. When does the UFC ever throw a guy like Vitor Belfort at you on a two fight losing streak?
Belcher, Leben, Bisping, Belfort, and Shields. Pretty damn good list to be losing to.
I think as long as he keeps putting on exciting fights, he'll be in the UFC. This is not a case like Steve Cantwell, where a couple losses in a row earns you a cut. He deserves to stay in more of a way than Alexander deserved to after losing several straight.
He's fighting at such a high level, but I think for once, he deserves a tune up.
