“It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog” Mark Twain
Ikuhisa Minowa, better known as Minowaman, is what I like about what’s left of the MMA. A small man who routinely kicks the asses of much bigger man. No matter how great they are, no matter how big they are, Minowaman will face them. Minowaman is the modern-day David vs Goliath. Minowaman is the Ultimate Giant Killer.
Minowaman fought a large variety of fighters. He defeated fighters like Butterbean, Giant Silva, Hong Man Choi, Bob Sapp, Jimmy Ambritz, Don Frye, Kimo Leopold, Imani Lee, Mike Plotcheck, Gilbert Yvel, Phil Baroni, Errol Zimmerman, Stefan Leko, Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou… And honorably lost against some of the bests of the sport, fighters like Mirko Cro Cop, Wanderlei Silva, Kazushi Sakuraba, Evan Tanner, Paulo Filho, Semmy Schilt, Ricardo Arona, Quinton Jackson, Murilo Bustamante… With a record of 47 Wins – 32 Losses – 8 Draw (47-32-8), Minowaman has faced the greatest and the largest fighters of the world. Whether there is King Kong and Godzilla wanting to tag team against him in an handicap match, Minowaman won’t back against any man, woman, or animal!?!…
It’s easy to understand why Minowaman is a hero in Japan and one of the most popular fighters there. Minowaman is the Ultimate Underdog! A 5’9″ middleweight who never weighted more than 196 pounds, Minowaman shows us that, like Mark Twain would say: “It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog.”
Minowaman is all about heart, courage, and dedication. A true hero and inspiration to look up to.
