Yoshihiro Akiyama versus Jake Shields set for UFC 144 in Japan

Japanese fighter Yoshihiro ‘Sexyama’ Akiyama (13-4, 2NC) had a rough go in the UFC’s middleweight division going 1-3, with three straight losses. After much prodding, and with his job on the line, ‘Sexyama’ has finally made the move to welterweight.

Here he shows off his new look just three months after his last fight at 185 lbs.

Akiyama does not have a scheduled fight at this time but most expect him to appear on the upcoming Japanese card planned for Feb. 26.
