idk man, they offered him a huge contract that doesn't need any upping imo. i honestly think he legitimately wants to fight in the UFC.

Well I read not to long ago that he rejected the contract from K-1 and was coming to the US to train with ATT and plans on fighting in the UFC.

I'm not really sure as to why he would want to fight in the UFC, he would make way more in base earnings and endorsements in Japan.
