M-1 has been organizing the events for more than 20 years, so the organizers have seen a lot of crazy and funny fighters who made a true show in the ring or made the original entrance to the fight that was remembered for years.
One of them was Japanese fighter Juji Hisamatsu, who had brutal nickname “The Pink Typhoon”. He came to St.-Petersburg in December 2003 to participate in Russia vs. The World 7 events organized by M-1. Despite his quite strange image, Japanese man was experienced enough in MMA, having 10 victories in 19 fights in just three years, including the fights in such promotions as Pancrase and DEEP.
His opponent was rising 21-year old Russian prospect Denis “Siberian Bear” Komkin, who’s heavyweight fights you can find at our channel. But in 2003 he was much younger and smaller, fighting in welterweight division, his main weapon were great striking skills and fast submissions. It was only the fifth professional MMA fight for Denis, but he was ready and motivated to make a great fight against much more experienced opponent.
