Satoshi Ishii Negotiating With The UFC
Posted by Dustin James on 12.28.2008



Japanese Olympic Judo Gold Medalist Satoshi Ishii was in attendance for Saturday night's UFC 92 card in Las Vegas and confirmed his interest in making his MMA debut with the UFC:

"I was impressed with the training programs here in Las Vegas and the UFC event. I am looking forward to working with the UFC and to developing my mixed martial arts skills."

UFC President Dana White also confirmed the company's interest in Ishii:

"Satoshi Ishii has the potential to be very successful in mixed martial arts. We can't wait to start working with Mr. Ishii, we look forward to helping him with his training, his career, and his eventual debut in a professional fight."

Ishii competed as a Judo heavyweight in the Olympics this year and won the gold medal in the men's over 100-kilogram event.
