Thank you for following along tonight, Twitterverse. #UFCJapan ruled, and I hope you all enjoyed it too. Get some sleep now.
The walkoff KO. Hunt knew he landed it, put his hands up, and that was that. Absolutely vicious. What a shot. #UFCFightNight #UFCJapan
with a huge uppercut and puts him away. One shot! #UFCFightNight #UFCJapan
.@RoyNelsonmma with the early takedown in R2, secures the back, but Hunt escapes, and it's back to the feet. #UFCFightNight #UFCJapan
OK, the warm-up round is in the books. Pretty even. Many bombs were lobbed. #UFCJapan #UFCFightNight 10-9 Hunt if I must pick.
.@roynelsonmma looks for a takedown early, but it's quickly turned away. Interesting... #UFCJapan
It's time for the #UFCJapan main event.
I just don't see how this can be bad. Bring the violence!
.@FuryJury wouldn't call anyone out. Instead, he wants sushi and sake. #UFCFightNight #UFCJapan
.@GOMI_RSCL had not been knocked out in 45 career fights.
needed 90 seconds to change that.
.@FuryJury just starched
in a minute and a half. That man is for real. #UFCFightNight #UFCJapan
.@FuryJury has graced our pages in recent months. Will he take out the legendary
tonight at #UFCJapan? #UFCFightNight
That's a 30-27 or worse for Akiyama. #UFCFightNight #UFCJapan
In fairness, Amir is a good opponent to maximize Akiyama's potential, but the dude took care of business and dominated bell to bell.
20-18 Akiyama through two. Amir needs the finish to win. #UFCFightNight #UFCJapan
Akiyama appears to have broken Amir's nose with a ferocious right in R2. #UFCFightNight #UFCJapan
.@amirMMA comes out blazing with high kicks in R2. Nothing significant landing, but he's throwing with conviction. #UFCFightNight #UFCJapan
I daresay Akiyama looks better after the long layoff? 10-9 for Sexyama in R1. #UFCFightNight #UFCJapan
.@akiyamayoshihir with the takedown less than one minute in. #UFCFightNight #UFCJapan
return to action next at #UFCFightNight. Let's hope the ring rust offsets and we get a competitive scrap!
.@MieshaTate calls for a rematch with
in her #UFCJapan post-fight interview. Is that a fight you'd want to see down the line?
def. Rin Nakai via unanimous decision. #UFCJapan
Rin secured a few takedowns but didn't do anything with them; Miesha dominated on the feet. Overall, a bit lackluster. #UFCFightNight
20-18 Tate through two. Rin needs a finish to win. #UFCFightNight #UFCJapan
Rin with a moment of success as she took Tate's back in R2, but Tate quickly shrugged her off and wound up on top. #UFCFightNight #UFCJapan
.@MieshaTate looks superior everywhere so far. It'll be interesting to see if Rin can turn it around. #UFCFightNight #UFCJapan
Time for the ladies to take the
#Octagon. Rin Nakai vs.
is up at #UFCJapan. Who wins it and how? #UFCFightNight
via split decision. Impressive comeback.
And there it is, Kunimoto wins the split decision over
That was an impressive comeback. #UFCJapan #UFCFightNight
These scorecards will be interesting. I personally have 29-28 Kunimoto despite the fact that Walsh impressed me more. #UFCFightNight
Kunimoto takes Walsh's back, locks up the body, and looks for the RNC finish. He came on strong in this one. #UFCFightNight #UFCJapan
.@RichyMMA slowed in the second half of R2, and Kunimoto took over. I think I'd give him that round, tying it at 19-19. #UFCFightNight
looks fantastic through 1-1/2 rounds. Strong showing for the former #TUF competitor. #UFCFightNight
Kunimoto needs to regroup after that round. It wasn't quite a 10-8, but it's an easy 10-9 for Walsh. #UFCFightNight #UFCJapan
Walsh is basically landing at will and hurting Kunimoto with everything. This is a beatdown thus far. #UFCFightNight #UFCJapan
Walsh drops Kunimoto about 20 seconds in. They're back up and at it after a brief ground exchange. #UFCFightNight #UFCJapan
The #UFCFightNight52 main card rolls along with
Who are you taking in this WW showdown? #UFCJapan
via Round 1 TKO.
Horiguchi probably deserves a top-tier flyweight now, yes? Who would you like to see him face? #UFCJapan #UFCFightNight
Horiguchi drops Delos Reyes with a left, pursues the finish on the ground, and gets it! Violent TKO victory. #UFCFightNight52 #UFCJapan
Horiguchi blasts Delos Reyes with a body kick early, and the fight goes to the mat. Horiguchi on top. #UFCFightNight52 #UFCJapan
kick off the #UFCFightNight52 main card in the flyweight division. Horiguchi can make some noise with a big win.
If you haven't already, switch streams on
for the #UFCFightNight52 main card. Prelims delivered, now it's time for more.
If the main card of #UFCFightNight52 is anything like the prelims, we're in for a treat. #UFCJapan
Does anybody want to see Kanehara vs.
now as originally planned? #UFCFightNight #UFCJapan
via unanimous decision. #UFCJapan
Caceres looked much better in R3, but it probably won't be enough. 29-28 Kanehara on my card. #UFCJapan #UFCFightNight
Caceres finding more success in R3, but he'll need a finish to pull off the victory. #UFCFightNight #UFCJapan
Another 10-9 for Kanehara makes it 20-18 through two. He's been dominant. #UFCFightNight #UFCJapan
After getting RNC'ed by Faber, it looks like Caceres did some serious work on his defense. Defended it for basically the whole round.
Maybe Kanehara vs.
happens after this (providing Caceres doesn't pull of the huge comeback)? #UFCJapan #UFCFightNight
