Video: Nagano vs. Ichii (MMA)
This is primarily a wrestling blog, but I do cover a little bit of MMA now & then, usually when it involves women’s MMA since a few notable fighters are/were also wrestlers as well. So today it’s an MMA video with a wrestling theme-at a Jewels event last year a fight that got a lot of hype because of the fighters was then-Ice Ribbon stars Mika Nagano vs. Mai Ichii. Perhaps jealous of all the attention Mika was getting, plus she wrestled in the promotion all of once, Mai really talked the talk up to the match claiming she was going to knock out Mika and really mess up her pretty face. Neither happened. Mika won. Both have taken different career paths since-Mika still fights (I believe her next fight is Saturday) while also wrestling in Stardom while Mai now appears to be retired. The fight is below, broken up into 2 parts. This fight took place on March 19, 2010.
