link Former PRIDE fighter and Japanese star Hidehiko Yoshida will fight for the final time on April 25.

Yoshida, a 1992 Olympic gold medalist in judo who turned pro in MMA in 2002, will help organize an event called "ASTRA," though no opponent has been announced.

The event takes place at the 15,000-seat Nippon Budokan in Tokyo, Japan, and features fellow Yoshida Dojo fighters Kazuhiro Nakamura, Tatsunao Nagakura, Michihiro Omigawa and Makoto Takimoto.

Opponents also have not been named for those fighters.

Always been a fan of Yoshida. He was always very respectful and put everything he had into his fights. He is one tough sob. Good luck to him

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in the playground is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.
