LONDON – "I am Sexyama."

Those are the exact words, in English, Japanese superstar Yoshihiro Akiyama (13-2 MMA, 1-1 UFC) used to open his address to the media at Thursday's "UFC 120: Bisping vs. Akiyama" pre-event press conference in London.

While that audacious tag once seemed shockingly accurate when describing the bronzed judoka with the impressive 11-fight win streak – and though Akiyama's performances thus far in the octagon have both been "Fight of the Night" affairs – he's earned just a split-decision win in two trips to the cage. Is that sexy enough to stick around in the UFC should he falter against UFC 120 opponent Michael Bisping?

I'm hoping we see the same Sexyama from his fight with Kang and from most of his fight with Misaki.

Haha sometimes I say screw my picks. I picked Bisping by UD, but I'm hoping big time that he gets knocked out.

I used to be that way with Bisping but I've started to not dislike him so much these days. I think the Henderson KO humbled him quite a bit.

Maybe it'll just take a while to catch up to me. I just can't stand him for one reason or another. I would, however, cheer for him against Anderson.
