“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.
Hero Highlight – Minowaman Hypersonic War Wagon of awesomeness
Minowaman was the GOAT of David vs Goliath.
Normal fights have it's aesthetics due to being two fighters proportional to each other, but sometimes see a smallish man fighter a big is fuckin good, the best fights for sure.
This created magic! It was so great!
Compare to this, now UFC and MMA are boring. Everybody looks the same and fight the same and the fuckin' referees all stop fights way too soon. It sucks now!
Jairzinho vs Alistair was a normal fight, but that giga punch was nice to see, tho i wish the best to Overeem
Wanted to see how genetic beast guys like Bolton or Filiou, cut to average fighter muscle and fat would punch. Killer machines, octogon would be a brain damage deliver
I think they would suck.
They would be too big, too clumsy and inflexible to be effective. And the most important factor would be the lack of stamina. Which is suicidal in any Combat Sport.
Examples: Bob Sapp & Kimbo Slice.
Sad but true.
