UFC newcomer Rin Nakai is set to face Miesha Tate this weekend in Japan, and during this week’s media duties she explained her odd video’s and out-of-cage persona.
“To wear something unique or different than other fighters, people pay more attention to the promotion. I think this is part of my honor to get more attention from the fans.”
“Pancrase had asked for something once a week for promotion, so I had to figure something out.”
“I want not just MMA fans, but ordinary people to watch my videos. My interest is that people who don’t have any idea about MMA watch my videos and might start to watch MMA and the UFC.”
