  1. You’re absolutely right, of course. All fighters should have a shaved head, tribal tattoos, an ugly-as-sin Affliction T-shirt and blue jeans. Otherwise they’re just not fighters, right?

    I’m proud of you John. Standing up and showing your support for metrosexuality is not a popular decision these days, but you do it with such gusto and flair(Wooooooooo!).


  3. LOL, I knew the metro comments would be coming. I just find it amusing the way fight fans freak out when someone’s not adhering to the strict dress code.

  4. mose says:

    🙂 at least most US-based MMA fighters are better than Bill Belichick….

    every time I’ve ever seen GSP outside of the octagon, he’s always been in a suit….

  5. Matt says:

    Akiyama was on a talk show in Japan where each guest was allowed to show off their favourite outfit. The guy absolutely ate it up, and modelled a ridiculously expensive and weird set of clothes.

    Akiyama dresses well, and tamely, compared to the average Japanese metrosexual, that’s for damn sure.

  6. Gabe says:

    Oh my goodness you guys, did you SEE what Akiyama was wearing? Like, eww! Ugh. Good thing my favorite fight site is on top of fashion trend gossip.

  7. Him and Tank should trade loafer tips

  8. Cacti45 says:

    Akiyama is back to his dont give a damn self. Gotta love the guy

  9. At least his shoes match his jacket.

  10. Andrej says:

    You call those shoe’s? more like sandels or something odd?

  11. The Gaijin says:

    Akiyama MMA fighter or Miami Beach bisexual cocaine importer-cum-pimp?

  12. PizzaChef says:

    It’s Celeb Akiyama!
