Mach Sakurai headline on Yahoo Japan
Mach Sakurai story makes front page of Yahoo Japan HP

Unfortunately for 30-year Hayato “Mach” Sakurai, he didn’t make national headlines in Japanese news circles because of his great fighting career. Instead, he made the news because police arrested 33-year old construction worker Kenichi Sakayori on suspicion of assault (causing an injury). According to police, an incident occurred at 1 AM on April 9th when Sakayori was driving his car slowly on a street in Ibaraki and Sakurai’s right knee touched the car. Sakurai was with three other people at the time. Sakayori didn’t like what happened and ended up giving Sakurai a broken left orbital (cheek) bone, which caused a one-month recovery time period. Sakayori told the police that he didn’t know that Sakurai was a martial artist.
