Apparently Norifumi “KID” Yamamoto was supposed to show up at the kick off press conference for UFC Japan last week. But when his name tag got pulled, all Dana White would say was that he “called in sick to work”.

Turns out the Krazy Bee legend already had another gig lined up – he’s opening his own restaurant. The champion wrestler-turned-MMA fighter-turned-super coach-turned artist will now try his magic hands in the culinary delights of curries.

Curry Shower will have their opening this coming weekend, so if you’re an MMA fan in Tokyo – or a curry fan for that matter – this should be a “must” on your epic Japan journey.
