That's a decent signing. He is a heal in Japan but he is definitely popular there.

He hasn't really been on a three-year hiatus though, since he's been dominating in Ganryujima.

He was undefeated in it, I think he went like 7-0, with some good fights along the way.

Glad to hear, I hope 1C isnt too much competition for Rizin though as I want them to succeed more.

I prefer to see RIZIN succeed over ONE as well. I'd rather see them work together. Next fight I 'd like to see for Gooch is DJ.

I couldn't find record of him fighting for them on tapology, which keeps record of their events.

Are you sure you aren't mistaking him for Ganryujima GOAT Katsunori Kikuno?

You are correct. My mistake.

I can't keep these Japanese names straight, and as a factoid I speak Japanese and lived in Japan for years.

But yeah, I was wrong.
