Ishii Concentrated On Graduating Right Now!

Satoshi Ishii held a press conference a few hours ago where he said that he wants to concentrate on graduating from Kokushikan University right now but that he is interested in MMA in the future. He is not impatient and he wants to slowly think about which course to take.

    He could be a major force in MMA, but he needs like 5 years more of judo i think. Maybe a goldmedal in the WC at least. I know that hes throwing ability is strong, but never heard of his submission or punching game. But the news makes me happy though, Yoshida is aging, and we need some new young guys, judokas, in the game. Although this descision of waiting with the mma debut is not his own, its from the japanese fed. of Judo. for sure.

    Judo Saiko!

    His grappling is far up there. Olympic gold medalist, youngest national champion ever, BJJ brown belt, wrestling training.

    Who knows about his striking though.
