Cosplayer and occasional kickboxer Yuichiro “Jienotsu” Nagashima has won yet another crushing victory, this time in a Mixed Martial Arts contest, inflicting a second-round knockout on his opponent in 4 seconds flat.

His usual showy cosplay entrance (in this case from 2ch’s favourite: “Milky Holmes”):




The match, replete with knuckle-dragging American sports commentators:

Aoki himself has something of a reputation for obnoxious behaviour, and doubts have been raised over the fairness of the match’s rules (which some claim were arranged to favour Aoki with relaxed “special” kickboxing rules and a longer MMA round), making the crushing defeat all the more humiliating for Aoki.

Aoki’s many detractors are actually circulating rumours that he defecated himself with the force of the kneeing he received.

It is not clear whether there is any truth to this, but in any case it seems unlikely having his bowels forcibly evacuated by a blow is more humiliating than being beaten by a crossdressing man in a wig.

Jienotsu for his part spent part of his after-match interview rubbishing Ishihara and his ban, stressing he opposes it completely. Aoki was on his way to hospital and so gave no comment…

    He can do it in less than 4 seconds if it's iShitHara

    Hell, the way this match was going, you would think that it was "IShitHara" that Jienotsu was fighting...

    Wow the other guy almost died after taking that knee. Serves him right for that ridiculous first round.

    No, this match shows that Aoki is an arrogant ass, who didn't do his homework properly.

    Says nothing about other MMA fighters in the same weight class.

    Someone like a Georges St-Pierre would be a completely different ballgame, then again he's a Welterweight and not a Lightweight.

    For other fighters in Nagashima's weight class, you'd have to look at Frankie Edgar, BJ Penn, or Sean Sherk.

    To bad Overeem (MMA) won the K1 (kickboxing) belt and Mousasi (MMA) has beaten two k1 fighters in K1 matches, one the same night as this.

    You don't know who these people are? Oh yes because you are an ill-informed idiot and like many of these commenters on this story; you didn't even watch the whole event and you don't know anything about the history or rules of MMA. SO please shut up.

    That was awesome - Nagashima's knee might have killed Aoki, he looked in bad shape there. Commentator was Frank Trig - x-MMA fighter so he was just biased for the other MMA fighter (Aoki). The other commentator seemed fair and was blasting Aoki for those 1st round tactics.

    Too bad we didnt' get the Milky Holmes entrance. Though I can't tell if Nagashima was as Cordelia or G4's Kokoro-chan

    fuck, anyone know the names of those biased ass commentators? I think I've heard the really obnoxious one before. they couldn't even let nagashima have his moment, with their 'My new years been ruined". How can anyone cheer for someone who's so ready to break the rules? and more then a dozen times no less.

    One of the Yanks is Frank Trigg, himself a former UFC fighter. Likes to be a heel like Aoki.

    Other one you hear for a bit is called Hans Thompson.

    Other guy is an Ozzie by the sound of his accent. Maybe a Kiwi.

    As for the complaint about his New Year being ruined. He had a bet with the other main commentator, if Aoki won, then the other guy would shave his beard off. If Nagashima won, then Trigg would have to wear a pink wig and lipstick.

    Obviously, the Ozzie was in favour of Nagashima.

    I was so happy to see that clown get his face planted with that knee, it was like a breath of fresh air, he should have been DQ'ed from that Kick-Boxing match for those shenanigans, the Ref. was being WAY too generous...

    I'm not familiar with the rules, but here's my take on this:
    In the first round, Jienotsu had the advantage because of the rules, so Aoki made an ass of himself using illegal moves and falling to run out the clock. Then, in the second round, Aoki got his ass owned despite having the advantage.

    All I can say is Haaaaaaa!!!!!!

    That first round was pathetic. Aoki knew he couldn't beat Jienotsu when it came to Kickboxing, so he just pulled some cheap tricks to max out the clock. Not to mention he tried in the beginning to turn a Kickboxing match into a Wrestling match with all that Clinching and Shooting he did. He wasn't even trying to at least play the same game as Aoki. Plus I'm really surprised he didn't get red carded because of all the Clinching and deliberate falls he took.

    Well, all that bussiness made the second round all the more sweeter. Aoki is a better grappler than Jienotsu by miles, and yet and still, Aoki got WAY too confident, and got a knee planted in his face for his troubles.

    And the narrators were saying the things they were mainly because Shinya Aoki is a lot more well known in the west than Yuichiro Nagashima. Mainly because Aoki fought in PRIDE back when it was still around, and due to the American Media's focus on MMA over other ringsports. Also I think the comentators were expecting this to go the way of Gracie fights in the early days of MMA. Where the grappler/ground fighter utterly defeats the unprepared striker who is helpless on the ground. But, things did not turn out that way in the end.

    Most people I know were laughing their asses off after what happened the first round. I said I would have run away the entirety of the first round if I was Aoki but this was even worse. If he had just done what he did in the early portions of the first round before the dropkicks, Aoki would have won easily. Instead, he goes shoots straight in and gets ktfo. Anyone watching just blew up laughing after that.

    Yeah if Aoki didn't try to go for the takedown and instead look for openings he would've gotten Jienotsu down and submitted in a matter of seconds. Anyone who is a fan of MMA knows Aoki as a full ground and submissions artist. But instead he got too confident the second round and lost all the time he bought for himself. Nice try Aoki.

    Japan vs Japan is hardly MMA, much less any event with British announcers..

    There's a reason most all MMA fighters go to Japan to get an easy 5-10 wins on their records.

    That totally was G4's Kokoro-chan.

    I thought the fight was pretty lame duck in a way, Aoki acted like a silly monkey the first round and he couldn't stand getting kneed. Kudos to Nagashima, but that 'fight' was not exactly exciting. The hype was way more exciting.

    If Jienotsu can kick ass while cosplaying as a moe-moe girl, imagine how much damage he can do if he showed up as Dio Brando or Kenshiro...

    Because these matches are also broadcast overseas?

    It's the New Years Eve's tournament organized by DREAM. Called Dynamite!! 2010 this year.

    It's broadcast on HDNet in the US.

    Another small note to add some luster to Nagashima's win. Aoki is the DREAM Lightweight Champion.

    Considering Aoki is more of a grappler than a striker, Aoki took a page out of the Gracies' handbook and tried to buttflop and wait for the MMA portion of the match.

    Of course, this does not excuse Aoki from trying to shoot from the outside for the takedown. It's his damn fault for eating that Tiger Knee from Nagashima.

    you can't hit an opponent on the floor - kickboxing rules

    Aoki is playing smart and wasting time...

    Comment by Anonymous

    smart, yes.
    joke of a fight, also yes.

    frankly with how BLATANTLY Aoki was breaking the rules to shave seconds off the kickboxing round (those weren't "accidental" illegal clinches, Aoki was practically just shooting for a takedown in the first round to grab Jienotsu), Jienotsu should have just started breaking the rules himself and striking Aoki on the ground.

    the problem is Jienotsu would probably get DQed for breaking the rules.

    let's be honest, this entire thing was a joke match to try get Aoki an easy high profile (Jienotsu's recent kickboxing success, as well as his cosplaying, has made him fairly known in the Japanese pro fighting scene) win.
    with a lot of the high profile Japanese fighters leaving Japan, DREAM is doing everything they can to keep Aoki happy and protected.

    KOing Aoki was probably Jienotsu's only way of leaving the winner.
