“Alan was a very tough fighter. The damage of the low blow in the beginning of the fight was quite strong. I thought that if he hit me there again I wouldn’t be able to continue the fight. I wanted to take a large break but there was confusion during the fight. I misunderstood the referee saying five minutes in English as five seconds, I continued the fight urgently but this took a big toll on the exhaustion of my physical strength. My eye got injured when I got downed on the first round by a left. I felt an abnormality in my eye after the end of the 1st round. One eye was closed so I didn’t know about my sense of distance. Because I couldn’t see any attacks from my opponent’s right side I received a lot of leg kicks from that side. I didn’t continue with the game plan, the only reason I won was my feeling that I really didn’t want to lose this fight. After the fight when I was in the hospital, Dana White came personally and told me first hand that me and Belcher’s fight was elected as the fight of the night. I was very happy…. Alan is the toughest fighter I have faced and I’m proud to have been able to fight him. I will devote myself from now on so please support me.”

Dana should think about hiring Sexi to teach Brock a thing or 2 about sportsmanship. Polar opposites when it comes to maturity and class.

Classy guy.

And no, Belcher didn't get robbed, Sexyama won fair and square.

"He's called Sexyama by his female fans... You can call him that if you want, I'm not going to call him that though."
"He is a very handsome man"

Man, Akiyama is awesome. Very class act after the fight and a tough fighter in the octagon, continuing to fight even after his eye was completely shut. Can't wait to see him fight again.

people seem to ignore how he greased because he does come off as so humble and classy. i am a fan of Sexiama and i hope that he makes a nice run at MW, but the greasing incident will taint him a bit in my eyes. however, i am a big believer in second chances so i like to believe he put that behind him and will continue to be the charismatic, humble warrior that we all love.
