Ikuhisa "The Punk" Minowa

Ikuhisa "The Punk" Minowa

Ikuhisa Minowa is one of Japan's most exciting middleweight fighters. This high-flying talent comes from a background in professional wrestling and from there he began his career in mixed martial arts. He is comfortable fighting on his feet, though his true strengths are in his takedowns and grappling skills. Because of his all-around game, Minowa has gained a reputation as a "tricky" fighter because he is able to transition seamlessly between both fighting styles and is able to trick his opponents into giving up bad positions. Though he is of Japanese decent, Minowa has recently moved to Brazil and joined the Brazilian Top Team. From there he continues to hone his skills and improve as a fighter. His nickname of "the punk" comes from his love of Japanese punk rock!
