The influx of international talent into the Ultimate Fighting Championship continues to grow with almost every event. One of the most recent additions to the ever-growing welterweight division is Japanese standout Yoshiyuki Yoshida, who made his debut at UFC 84 picking up a quick submission win over Jon Koppenhaver.

Now the Judoka returns against one of the toughest tests in his career as he faces Karo Parisyan at UFC 88 in Atlanta, but it won’t be the first time he steps in as the underdog not expected to win.

Making his way through Japanese promotions such as Shooto, Yoshida worked his way into the GCM: Cage Force welterweight tournament as one of eight fighters vying for the championship title.

As long as he doesn't get outwrestled and mounted like in the Kikuchi fight he should do well. If he gets mounted by Karo he is not going to get him off.

I think Yoshida will win a decision, but if he gets top position he'll finish Karo or at the very least beat him up real bad. Yoshida has some sick GnP.

I'm just excited to see the new Karo in person.
