Done for the year-knee injury. If it's as bad as initially thought it could be, he's probably looking at January for a return. He was to have fought for DREAM in July but the injury forced the fight to be called off 3 days before it was scheduled. He's also facing allegations of using marijuana-in Japan just possessing it can result in 5 years in jail.

Damn, really wish that Japan would loosen up their Marijuana laws... i just don't see the point in imprisoning someone or banning them from the country (Paul McCartney) for smoking a plant... just doesn't make sense.

Yeah, he's out with a bum knee, severe sprain and a complete Anterior Cruciate Ligament(acl) tear to be exact. Sad as a fan to see him out until next year but my hope is that he takes plenty of time to rehab it properly and comes back in the best possible condition for his next fight.

I couldn' agree more BUT when you're talking about another country's laws you can't judge them by what you're laws are. Various Asian countries commonly imprison for reasons that westerners think are bad, but when in Rome..... If I were there and wanted to do drugs I would be aware that I wasn't in a place that had the lenient laws of Europe or the Americas.
