Yoshiyuki Yoshida: Preparing for the Biggest Fight of his Life at ONE Fighting Championship - Tokyo TimesSeptember 3rd will be a date with destiny for Japanese mixed martial artist Yoshiyuki Yoshida. He has fought all over the world in a glorious career but his next bout, with Phil Baroni at One Fighting Championship, will be the most important fight of his life.
Yoshida once went almost three years unbeaten, winning eight consecutive fights and being picked up by the UFC after defeating Dan Hardy in the final of the Cage Force Welterweight Tournament.
His UFC career got off to a good start as he won two of his first three fights but that organization is nothing if not ruthless and Yoshida found himself unceremoniously cut after posting back to back losses.
