TAKASE – Daiju has been in there with the best in the business, Jeremy Horn, Nate Marquardt, Hayato Sakurai, Carlos Newton, Hector Lombard and, of course, Anderson Silva. He has been fighting since the early days of Pride and has been on the scene for well over a decade. Over half of his wins are by submission, his ground game is deadly and with so much experience he is likely to be very composed when he steps inside the DARE cage.
TAKASE fights out of Tokyo, Japan and represents IamI organization in his DARE bedut.
Here are the thoughts of veteran MMA journalist James Goyder,
“BK will definitely be the underdog but he is so big and aggressive that absolutely anything could happen when he is in the cage. TAKASE’s ground game is very sophisticated and I think BK might think twice about shooting for the takedown for this reason. The best chance the American has of winning this fight is with an early knock out and I expect him to come out swinging which should be fun for the fans.” he said.
