MMAjunkie

LAS VEGAS – It’s official: [autotag]Conor McGregor[/autotag] will go after [autotag]Jose Aldo[/autotag]’s featherweight title in July at UFC 189.

“Remembering” Bruce Lee, for the First Time

Japan’s Karate Kid: Kyoji Horiguchi – The Future Of Shotokan Karate?

Blackburn Budokwai

Kyoji Horiguchi is a Japanese mixed martial artist currently competing in the flyweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, is the former Shooto Bantamweight Champion and is one of the brightest prospects in MMA. He is currently based in Tokyo and trains alongside legendary Kid Yamamoto at his gym, Krazy Bee.

Horiguchi boasts a Shotokan Karate background which he takes advantage of when moving about in the cage, making it difficult for his opponents to guess his next move. On top of that he can really pack a punch and his MMA record consists of 14 wins and only 1 loss with 9 KOs – unusual for a flyweight fighter.

Horoguchi faced Louis Guadinot on January 3, 2014 at UFC 182 and won the fight by unanimous decision. Check out some of his highlights below
