The third episode of “Road to UFC: Japan” explores the preparation and differences between the first fighters Hulk Oshiro and Wicky Nishiura.

Josh Barnett explains that Wicky’s style of a low guard is not a bad thing, that he throws some very unusual strikes from out of close distance.

Hulk asks Roy Nelson for help with his overhand right that comes out of nowhere and KOs people.

The match opens as expected, with Wicky throwing from weird positions and Tyson winging his big overhand rights. As Hulk thinks he has the advantage, he rushes in wildly and Wicky drops him with a left. Hulk responds by shooting.

The situation repeats but his time Wicky plasters Hulk to the canvas.

Both coaches say this is how they expected, and obviously Wicky is elated with the outcome.

The preview shows that Mizuno Hirota versus Tyson Osawa will be the next match.
