Kensuke Sasaki - Mixed Martial Arts Career

Mixed Martial Arts Career

Between 2001 and 2003, Sasaki took a couple hiatuses from pro wrestling and focused on Mixed Martial Arts. He has two fights under his belt, winning both by submission in the first round beating Dan Chase in 2001 and future UFC fighter Christian Wellisch in 2003.

During this period, he would alter his look, cutting his signature mullet (he would occasionally dye his hair different colors), wearing ring gear bearing the word, "Volcano," and adapting moves he learned in MMA training to expand his pro wrestling moveset.

Famous quotes containing the words mixed, martial, arts and/or career:

    Let us not deny it up and down. Providence has a wild, rough, incalculable road to its end, and it is of no use to try to whitewash its huge, mixed instrumentalities, or to dress up that terrific benefactor in a clean shirt and white neckcloth of a student of divinity.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Let the martial songs be written, let the dirges disappear. Let a
    race of men now rise and take control!
    Margaret Abigail Walker (b. 1915)

    Eliot dead, you saying,
    “And who is left to understand my jokes?
    My old Brother in the arts . . . and besides, he was a smash of
    poet.”
    Robert Lowell (1917–1977)

    I began my editorial career with the presidency of Mr. Adams, and my principal object was to render his administration all the assistance in my power. I flattered myself with the hope of accompanying him through [his] voyage, and of partaking in a trifling degree, of the glory of the enterprise; but he suddenly tacked about, and I could follow him no longer. I therefore waited for the first opportunity to haul down my sails.
    William Cobbett (1762–1835)
