Yasubey Enomoto Wanted to Be a Chef, Not a Fighter

TOKYO -- Yasubey Enomoto seemingly came from nowhere but quickly made his presence on the Japanese scene as he took out Grabaka boss Sanae Kikuta, Kenta Takagi and Taisuke Okuno in dominating fashion.

During his preparations for his Dec. 30 welterweight GP final bout with Keita "K-Taro" Nakamura at Sengoku: Soul of Fight, the Swiss prospect spoke candidly with MMA Fighting at Brave Gym in Adachi-ku, Tokyo about training with his brother in a garage in Zürich, his take on the philosophy of fighting and why he doesn't consider mixed martial arts to be a real sport.
