Review: 2014-09-20, some good exchanges in the second part of the fight but it is not enough to get three stars: Yoshihiro Akiyama vs Amir Sadollah gets two. The black belt in judo Yoshihiro Akiyama entered this fight with a pro mma record of 13-5-0 (92% finishing rate) but he is not ranked as he hasn’t fought since February, 2012 when he was defeated by Jake Shields (=Shields vs Akiyama); before that bout he had already lost three consecutive times.
His opponent, Amir Sadollah, has a record of 6-4-0 (33% submission victory rate – he has never won via ko/tko) but he is not ranked as he hasn’t fought since September 29, 2012 when he was defeated by Dan Hardy (=Hardy vs Sadollah). Akiyama vs Sadollah is on the undercard of Mark Hunt vs Roy Nelson – UFC FN 52 (UFC Fight Night Japan). Watch the video and rate this fight!
