An extravaganza of violence from the Land of the Rising Sun is something I look forward to every year. As dead as JMMA is (and let there be no doubt; it's almost as dead as Julius Caesar), they still manage to piece together some pretty fun cards every year. Now, granted, the death of PRIDE in 2007 eliminated any chance of seeing a super-intense Nobuhiko Takada in a diaper, and it also guaranteed that we wouldn't be treated to a live orchestra playing epic battle music. Even with those things gone, it's always a wonderful night of tradition and pageantry.
Thoughts on JMMA, the matchmaking, and the ugly Sylvia-Rogers fight rumor that I keep hearing are included.
As always, thank you to anyone who reads. More to come shortly. Also, as always, Dana White should not have a job.
