Kyogi Horiguchi wins impressive UFC debut – Japans next big thing?


At the tender age of just 23 years, Horiguchi has been signed to the ufc as an 11-1 pro.

JMMA fans will tell you the young Krazy Bee prospect is ready to be the next big thing.

Tutored under the jmma legend – Kid Yamamoto, the Karate skills of Kyogi have been shone through strong, early in his career.

with 7 tko/ko’s 1 sub and 3 decisions its fair to say he’s a striker at heart.

A tough ufc debut fight against Dustin Pague, the young Japanese prodigy showed the goods.

Defending submission attempts well, scrambling, Landing solid hands and then brutal ground and pound for the win at 3:51 of Rnd 2.

Great debut, now 12-1 at just 23 years of age with 8 tko/ko’s.

Kyoji Horiguchi vs. Dustin Pague

All the more Horiguchi took this fight at 135lbs when he is more suited to 125lbs…

Exciting to see him in the UFC at 125lbs sometime soon.
